Omicron: France Introduces PCR Requirement

Paris

France has announced strict new rules for all travelers - vaccinated or not - arriving in France from non-EU countries due to the new Omicron variant.

The new rules come into force at 00.01am on Saturday, December 4th and the testing requirements apply to everyone aged 12 or older – including those who have French citizenship or permanent residency in France.

Until this Saturday, UK and other non-EU travelers may continue to enter France with proof of vaccination and a sworn declaration form.

Arrivals from the Schengen zone will only need to present a negative test if they are not fully vaccinated. This test will need to be taken 24 hours before travel.

All travelers – vaccinated or not – will require a negative PCR Covid test in order to enter France from any country outside the EU or Schengen zone. Antigen tests and home tests are not accepted.
