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
However, while travelling to amber list destinations is not banned, the UK government warn against it.
Boris Johnson previously said: “It is not somewhere you should be going on holiday, let me be very clear about that.”
France reported 8,743 new cases yesterday, and have given 38 per cent of the population their first vaccine dose – the UK is at 58 per cent.

What are the travel restrictions for France?
France has banned Brits from entering the country unless essential due to the Indian variant.
Since May 31, travellers from the UK must provide “compelling reasons” to enter France when travelling by air, car, ferry or train.
And those who are allowed to make the journey must take a pre-departure Covid test and quarantine for seven days on arrival.
However, France has begun easing their lockdown – from June 9, cafes, bars and restaurants can reopen their indoor spaces while the curfew will be pushed back to 11pm.
From June 30, the curfew and the limit of people at restaurants will end while up to 1,000 people events will resume.
