Fully vaccinated Brits will be able to enter France without proof of a negative COVID test from Wednesday.

All other adults will have to quarantine for seven days and show a negative test, while children of people who’ve had both jabs will have to provide proof of a negative test.

Under France’s new system, which comes into place on 9 June, the UK is in the ‘amber’ category. Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks after the second dose of an EU-approved jab.

It’s expected the NHS app can be used as proof.

Everyone else will only be allowed into France without a ‘compelling reason’ to visit – and must isolate for seven days as well as provide proof of a negative test on arrival.

France is on the UK’s amber list, meaning Brits returning from the country must self-isolate on return.

In addition, the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office advises against all but essential travel to the whole of France based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.
