The French Foreign Minister has relaxed restrictions for travel between France and the UK stating it will ‘no longer be necessary to have a compelling reason to travel’. They have also extended the new condition to Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea.
The change that took place on 12th March was made due to the ‘very wide dissemination of the British variant in France and the specific health situation in those countries.’
All passengers arriving in France will still need to provide a negative PCR test result taken less than 72 hours before departure.
Under current Covid-19 restrictions in the UK, it is illegal to travel abroad unless you have a legally permitted reason to do so. The current travel ban is to be reviewed on 12th April.
