France Will Allow Entry To Vaccinated British Tourists From Next Week- But With Conditions.
Vaccinated visitors from “orange” countries – including the United States and Britain – will no longer need to quarantine on arrival and will no longer have to justify the reasons for their trip to France. They will, however, be asked for a negative PCR test no older than 72 hours or a negative antigen test of no more than 48 hours.
Fully-vaccinated people are those who have received their doses at least 14 days prior to their journey, with the Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca vaccines. For the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the timelag is four weeks.
The relaxed rules will offer a welcome boost for France’s tourism sector, but tourists from countries wrestling with virus surges and worrisome variants will need a compelling reason for their visit, and adhere to a set of strict conditions. This “red list” currently has 16 countries, including India, South Africa and Brazil, according to a report by France 24.
Outside of Europe, most of the rest of the world is classed as “orange” in the new travel rulebook released Friday by the French government.
European visitors and those from seven countries classed as “green” – Australia, South Korea, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, New Zealand and Singapore – will no longer need to undergo testing if they’re vaccinated.
The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite Brits in Spain with their family and friends by capping the costs of PCR tests for travel.
