Is France on the green list?

France remains off the UK's green list, and is still on the amber list.

This means Brits will need the following when returning to the UK:

  • A negative test taken pre-arrival
  • A mandatory ten-day quarantine at home
  • Two Covid tests, taken on day two and day eight

If double vaxxed Brits are able to travel to amber list countries, then they will be able to skip the quarantine but will still need to have negative Covid tests.


What are the travel restrictions for France?

Brits who have had both jabs can now visit the country without having to quarantine or having a "compelling reason" to visit.

Anyone who has had the Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca vaccine must have had their second jab two weeks before travel.

Brits will also need a negative Covid test to enter the country, although this can be an antigen test.

UK travellers who have only had one jab, or no jabs, are still banned from entering France.

France lifted most of their lockdown measures on July 1, with very few restrictions on travelling around the country.

Cafes, bars and restaurants have fully reopened with no restrictions on capacity, along with tourist attractions.

Some measures remain in place for larger music and sports events with capacity limits of 2,500.

Any events with more than 1,000 people require proof of full vaccination or have a negative Covid test.

Here is the full list of countries on the green list, amber list and red list right now.

Popular holiday hotspots such as Malta and Madeira were also added to the green list.
