France has introduced a new system governing international travel to and from France. There are three categories of measures: green, amber and red. The UK is currently on the French amber list. Entry requirements are different depending on whether you are fully vaccinated or not.
Unvaccinated (or not fully vaccinated) arrivals in France from countries on the French amber list will only be permitted to travel for essential reasons. If you are not fully vaccinated, you will need to have an essential reason to travel from France to a country on France’s amber list.
Travellers who are fully vaccinated do not need an essential reason to travel to France and do not need to self-isolate on arrival. From 18 July, fully vaccinated adults no longer need to present evidence of a negative test result before travel. Fully vaccinated travellers will need to present a completed ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form and proof of vaccination status. Further information on the entry requirements to France can be found on the government website.
From 4am on Monday 4 October 2021, the rules for international travel to England have changed from the red, amber, green traffic light system to a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world. The rules for travel from countries and territories not on the red list will depend on your vaccination status. Fully vaccinated travellers can book a day 2 test with free delivery. Not fully vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers can book their return antigen tests and day 2 and 8 travel packages with Medicspot. Further details can be found on our Covid test page.
Travel to France from the UK is subject to specific requirements. You can only travel from the UK to France if you belong to one of the following groups:
If you are travelling from the UK to France, you are required to undertake a negative Covid-19 PCR or antigen test within 72 hours of departure.
Travellers from the UK to France are required to take a negative Covid-19 PCR or antigen test within 72 hours of their flight.
Yes. If you are travelling to France from the UK then you will need to have completed both a ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) and a signed ‘travel certificate' (attestation).
The sworn statement certifies that you are not suffering from any Covid symptoms and have not been in contact with any confirmed cases over the past two weeks. The travel certificate is required to confirm your reason for travelling.
Further information on these documents can be found from the French government.
Yes. Medicspot tests and fit to fly certificates are universally recognised by both France’s airlines and the French government.
If your Covid-19 test is negative, Medicspot will provide you with your negative test result as well as a fit to fly certificate. These will be provided within the 72 hour window.
No. The French government has declared that children under the age of 11 do not need to present a negative Covid-19 test in order to travel to France from the UK.
As of July 2021, France does not allow proof of recovery certificates for travellers arriving from the UK to enter the country. See the government website for additional information.
