From Friday fully vaccinated UK travellers may travel to France as long as they have had a 'paid for' negative covid test less than 24hrs before travel.

No isolation on arrival required so almost back to how it used to be. We’re hopefully off over to the continent in a couple of weeks time.

How does that work if you are booking a site the day before crossing over on a ferry. ?

But it said paid for, so which company are you going through, as I guess you cannot use the NHS LFT.

You purchase a test and complete the test 24 hours before you depart.

I've used https://www.chronomics.com/ they seem good and very well priced only £15.99.

When we didn't travel to France at Christmas they even gave us a full refund even though we had received the kits.

Alternatively book into Boots or Lloyds pharmacy for a test. About twice as costly as the postal tests but results usually in about an hour (despite the test being the same 15min test the NHS provides!).

The gov.uk website has now been updated to reflect France's latest rules relating to UK travellers

https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france/entry-requirements

For 'fully vaccinated travellers" the relevant rules are:

Travel between the UK and France

If you’re planning to travel to France you should consult the French government guidance

The French authorities have confirmed that from the morning of 14 January 2022, the UK is on France’s red list. Fully vaccinated travellers (see ‘Vaccination status’ below) must:

- Present a negative PCR or antigen test result taken within 24 hours pre-departure if aged 12 years and over.
- Provide a completed ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form self-certifying you’re 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.


and

You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test from a private coronavirus testing provider. Test results must be certified by a laboratory to be accepted.

All travellers might be asked to take a test upon arrival in France, including at Gare du Nord for Eurostar arrivals. Anyone testing positive for COVID-19 will be subject to mandatory self-isolation for 10 days.

Hi, According to the map, N. Ireland is AMBER but the R of Ireland is GREEN. So how will travellers from N I be treated when entering France from Ireland. Which form and if any additional PCR test will we required. So confusing. !!!!!!!

Ireland to France travel advice here

https://www.dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice/a-z-list-of-countries/france/

If a traveller beginning their journey in Northern Ireland actually leaves for France from somewhere in the Republic of Ireland, the latter country's rules should apply to that traveller. On the other hand...
