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 under the age of 18 years old, who are travelling with fully vaccinated adults, will be exempt from requirements to self-isolate and provide an essential reason for travel, regardless of whether the minor has been vaccinated or not.
If you live in England, France will accept the NHS COVID Pass or your NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. If you live in Scotland or Wales, France will accept your respective NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. 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.
You can find out how to obtain your evidence by visiting the Government website:
Returning back to the UK
France is on the Amber list for entry back into the UK. NOTE: Regardless of your vaccination status, all arrivals returning from France on or after 19 July must:
- self-isolate at home for 10 days – unless you opt in to the so-called "Test to Release Scheme".
- take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8
Children aged 4 and under do not need to take the day 2 or day 8 test.
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:
