France: Regime to relax travel rules from the UK

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“France will relax its restrictions for those travelling from the UK from Friday, the government has announced. Vaccinated travellers will no longer need a compelling reason to enter France, and will not have to self-isolate when they arrive. But a negative Covid test, taken 24 hours before leaving the UK, will still be required for all those arriving. Travel companies welcomed the news — with Jet2 reporting a ‘sharp spike’ in flight bookings to ski destinations. France brought in the restrictions on 18 December in an attempt to slow the spread of the Omicron variant. People who are not vaccinated will still need a compelling reason to enter France, and must still isolate for 10 days upon arrival.” (01/13/22)
