This land of medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches is truly worth the effort to visit provided you meet these conditions:

  • Travel is allowed from the UK to France for EU nationals, French residents and those with essential reasons. 
  • Other travellers aside from the above generally have to present a negative PCR test or antigen COVID-19 test done less than 48 hours before their flight along with a declaration that they have no COVID-19 symptoms and have not been in close contact with any COVID-19 patients over the last 14 days. Upon arrival, travellers have to be quarantined for 7 days and conduct a PCR test before leaving quarantine.
