What are the Covid 19 rules when traveling to France?
France has now lifted its ban on UK tourists. Brits no longer need a ‘compelling’ reason or have to isolate on arrival.
France requires all UK travellers to present a negative COVID-19 test – either antigen or PCR – taken within 24 hours before departure. Antigen tests must be certified by a laboratory and NHS lateral flow test kits are not allowed.
France is connected to the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC), which allows restriction-free travel across all EU and EEA countries following proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test.
France is operating a ‘green pass’ for entry into public spaces.
Non-vaccinated visitors from the EU need to present a negative test taken 24 hours before travel.
Unvaccinated passengers travelling from the UK to France by Eurostar will be asked to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival at Gare du Nord.
Mask-wearing is compulsory in all enclosed public spaces – and some outdoor places, including crowded queues, markets, or in the stands of a stadium.
