Quarantine has been scrapped but travellers will still need a Covid test to enter France
Fully vaccinated travellers from the UK will be able to enter France once again from Friday January 14 without providing a “compelling” reason, French Tourism Minister Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne announced on Thursday.
Brits arriving in France will no longer have to isolate but will still need to present a negative Covid test taken 24 hours before their departure from the UK.
“They will now be able to travel from the UK for leisure and come to France to ski,” the minister stated, adding that unvaccinated travellers will need to justify their trip before being allowed to enter.
