Covid Travel Update: France Tightens Entry Restrictions from Saturday 18th

This morning the BBC reports changing to the French rules for entry into the country, writing:

"From Saturday, people coming from the UK will be required to have a negative Covid test of less than 24 hours.

Once in France, they will have to self-isolate for a week, but that period of quarantine can be ended after 48 hours if they have a second negative test once in France.

Compelling reasons will be needed for entry, which includes visiting family - but not tourism or non-urgent work reasons.

The new measures apply to everyone regardless of whether they have been vaccinated"
