We're delighted that France & Corsica are welcoming UK visitors for their well-earned holidays.
Please see below the latest entry requirements for customers travelling to France. You should also make sure you check the latest news before you travel, as advice can change at the last minute. You will find the latest news here: FCDO Travel Advice for France
Entry to France, including Corsica
France will only allow fully vaccinated travellers for leisure purposes.
Travellers who are fully vaccinated do not need an essential reason to travel to France and do not need to self-isolate on arrival. Fully vaccinated travellers will need to present the following documents:
- Complete a Form - a completed ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form self-certifying they are not suffering from symptoms associated with coronavirus and have not been in contact with confirmed cases in the preceding fortnight. This can be found on the French government’s website
Vaccine Status - show proof of vaccination status
Children aged 12 years old or over who are travelling with a fully vaccinated adult are required to present a negative test result (PCR or antigen) taken within 24 hours of departure. However, they do not need to provide an essential reason for travel, nor do they need to self-isolate on arrival.
Demonstrating your vaccination status
France will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record at the border. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.
If you are due to travel to France, and have not yet received your vaccinations, you can find out more about your options in our article: Do I need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to travel?
Returning back to the UK
France is on the Amber list for entry back into the UK. You must therefore also ensure you arrange the appropriate tests and forms for when you return home. You can find out more about what you need to do in our articles here:
