Planning to travel to the UK?

May 14, 2021

France is on the UK's amber list for international travel. Travellers going from France to the UK must:

• Complete a passenger locator form.

• Have proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 3 days of departure (if 11 years or over).

Quarantine for 10 days.

Complete COVID-19 tests on day 2 and 8 of your quarantine (these tests must be booked before you travel).

You must follow these rules even if you have been vaccinated.

You may be denied boarding if you do not comply with these requirements, or fined if found to have broken the rules.

If you entered France from a red-listed country less than ten days before you arrive in England, then you will need to use managed quarantine.  

There are a small number of exemptions to these rules, which you can find here.

In England, you can still use the Test and Release scheme to end quarantine early, if you take a test after 5 days.

You can find specific information here if you are travelling to Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
