France travel update: Negative Covid test needed for non-EU visitors, regardless of vaccination status

France will require all visitors from outside the EU to provide a negative Covid test result going forward – regardless of vaccination status.

Speaking after the French government’s weekly Defence Council meeting, government spokesman Gabriel Attal has confirmed to press that from Saturday all travellers – vaccinated or not – will have to provide a negative test result to enter the country.

The move comes as countries around the world tighten their entry rules and traveller requirements in the face of the new omicron variant, which has spread to several countries including the UK.

At present, fully vaccinated UK travellers may enter France with proof of vaccination, along with a “sworn declaration” health form.

Unvaccinated travellers still need an essential reason to travel to France from the UK, and must also present a negative test result (PCR or antigen, taken within the 24 hours previous) on arrival as well as the sworn declaration form.

Attal told reporters that decisions regarding intra-EU-travel would be coordinated by European leaders later this week.
