France Eases Travel Restrictions From The UK And Six Other Countries

Now travel is allowed to and from Australia, Israel, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, New Zealand, as well as the UK. France said it is ‘no longer necessary to prove a compelling reason for travel’ to and from the countries.

Arrivals are still required to provide a negative Covid-19 test result issued less than 72 hours before travel. Tourism Minister Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne said the UK was included as the UK variant of Covid-19 is already widespread in France.
