Covid-19 has become a part of our lives since March 2020. Restrictions appear to be easing gradually and are now, generally, the same across mainland France. They may differ in the Overseas Departments and Territories.
Since 12th February 2022, it no longer necessary to have a negative test result.
For more detail (in English) on the procedures in place, go to the French Ministère de l'Interieur's Coronavirus information page.
The UK is now categorised as a "green country" so any traveller who is NOT fully vaccinated no longer needs to self isolate in arrival in France, but still has to present a negative test result or proof of having been tested positive for Covid no less than 11 days and no more than six months before the date of travel.
Mobility rules and regulations
Health control measures. Should you wish to enter the national territory from a “green” list country or territory :
Children under 12 are exempt from these formalities.
Given the health situation in the overseas territories, these rules may vary in the overseas departments and territories: travelers are therefore invited to consult the websites of the prefectures and High Commissions concerned.
For travel from France to the UK, go to the Planning to travel to the UK? page on this website.
Current French Anti-Covid Measures
From Monday 14th March, the "pass vaccinal" is no longer required. It is, however, still necessary to show a "pass sanitaire" to enter hospitals (except in an emergency) and old peoples' homes. Wearing of a mask is also no longer compulsory, except on public transport and in medical facilities, including hospitals, and old peoples' homes. However, a number of places may continue to require - or at least strongly recommend - the wearing of masks.
Holders of an English NHS Covid vaccination certificate are able to convert this to a French "pass sanitaire" in the TousAntiCovid app that can be downloaded to your smartphone. The situation may be more complicated if your certificate was issued by NHS Scotland.
