France has opened its borders to all UK tourists and our carp fishing in France holidays are back on!
Important: this article was last updated on the 20th May 2022. You should always check the requirements for yourself at time of travel using the links included in the article below.
Entry into France
– Show proof of full vaccination (PLEASE NOTE; as with most EU countries, you now need to have had a booster vaccine dose within nine months of your second in order to maintain your ‘fully vaccinated’ status for entry into the country).
– If unvaccinated, you must present a negative result of a PCR test less than 72 hours or an antigen test less than 48 hours before entering France, or a certificate of recovery (positive result of a PCR or antigen test carried out more than eleven days and less than six months previously. This certificate is only valid for a period of six months from the date of the examination or test).
Entry back into the UK
No tests or forms are required for returning to the UK.

Travelling with Children
Our understanding is that unvaccinated children under 12 years old can travel to France with their parents/guardians, no negative test required.
It’s never been more important to get good travel insurance, either an annual policy or one-trip cover. Companies like StaySure appear to be offering cover for Covid related issues as standard at no extra cost.
