The French minister Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne has confirmed yesterday Thursday 13 January on Twitter: “We are relaxing the entry conditions to France from the UK for vaccinated travellers". “The decree will be published tomorrow morning, with immediate entry into force.”
He also confirmed that vaccinated Brits would no longer need a “compelling reason” to enter France, although they will need to present a negative Covid test taken within the 24 hours before travel.
However, no rules will change for unvaccinated travellers, who must still meet the same strict criteria to be permitted entry, as per the 18 December 2021 rule change.
If they do have a “compelling reason” to travel to France, unvaccinated visitors must provide a negative Covid test and self-isolate for 48 hours on arrival, emerging only with a second negative test result.
Holidaymakers to France should also check local vaccine passport rules, which change on Saturday 15 January 2022.
