Travelers from Britain are a step closer to being able to go on holiday in France after the French government agreed on a plan to ease restrictions on vaccinated visitors, who have a negative test.
Tourists from the UK could be allowed to travel to France regardless of vaccination status – provided that they have a negative test, according to France’s administration.
In a statement, the French government announced that it will on Friday ease coronavirus travel restrictions for travelers from Britain, enabling vaccinated tourists to visit if they have a negative test.
From Friday, all vaccinated travelers entering France from the UK will only have to show a negative PCR or antigen test taken 24 hours before their departure, the statement added.
It’s worth mentioning that the French travel restrictions also came at a time when relations between the British and French governments remain strained over a host of disagreements related to Brexit, as well as cross-Channel migration and a poached submarine contract with Australia.
