France eases travel restrictions for people arriving from UK

People travelling from the UK to France will no longer have to self-isolate on arrival or show proof that their trip is essential from Friday morning.

However, the requirement for a negative COVID test, conducted 24 hours before their visit, remains in place.

Those who provide a negative result will also need to be fully-vaccinated.

The decision to end the ban on non-essential travel is a major boost for travel firms and the thousands of people in the UK who have booked ski holidays in France.

France introduced a ban on non-essential travel to and from the UK on 18 December last year in an effort to slow the spread of the Omicron variant.
