France confirms lifting of UK travel ban

Thursday, Jan 13, 2022 0

The travel ban between the UK and France will officially come to an end on Friday.

The French government announced an easing of Covid travel restrictions from the UK allowing vaccinated travellers to skip self-isolation upon arrival.

Prime Minister Jean Castex said it is because of the ‘predominance of the Omicron variant in both France and the United Kingdom.’

Effective Friday, all travellers must present a negative test within 24 hours to enter France.

However, unvaccinated people still need a ‘compelling reason.’

They also need to fill out a passenger locator form and undergo a 10-day isolation which will be ‘monitored by police.’

France imposed a ban before Christmas as the Omicron variant swept across the UK.

Once released, the decree will take ‘immediate’ effect.
