Coronavirus Guide: France

French Covid Travel updates

Face to face French classes are now offered at all language schools in France & Guadeloupe.

From 4 December 2021, any person aged 12 and over entering French territory must present a negative PCR or antigen test less than 24 or 48 hours old, depending on the country of origin. The only exception is for people with a complete vaccination schedule arriving from a Member State of the European Union, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, the Holy See or Switzerland. These people do not have to present a test.

From 14th January 2022, any UK citizen who has been fully vaccinated can enter France, (from today) with a PCR test, as above for other nationalities. Unvaccinated UK citizens may still only enter France for very limited reasons.

Updated: 14th January 2022
