France reopens to unvaccinated UK travellers – Business Traveller

The UK has been placed on France’s “green list”, meaning that unvaccinated travellers no longer need a compelling reason to enter the country.

The move – which takes effect today (March 31) – was confirmed in a tweet by Guillaume Bazard, France’s consul general in London.

Unvaccinated travellers from the UK continue to be required to present a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours before arrival (48 hours for an antigen test).

Bazard also confirmed that vaccinated travellers will no longer need to take a pre-departure test.

Fully vaccinated UK travellers have been able to travel to France without a compelling reason since mid-January.

Note that full vaccination status lasts for nine months – after this travellers are required to have had a booster jab to be considered “fully vaccinated”.
