The below text is taken from the French Consulate general official website and the UK government official website. It details the now voluntary quarantine requirements for travellers entering France from the United Kingdom and the compulsory self-isolation procedure on return.
TRAVELLING TO FRANCE FROM THE UK
Travel restrictions at Europe’s internal borders are being lifted as of 15 June. Travel restrictions between France and the UK are therefore being removed, and the international travel declaration is no longer required. However, the quarantine measure established on 8 June remains; it is voluntary in France and compulsory in the UK.
See France’s Interior Ministry’s website for practical details of its implementation and the Consulate’s website for details of the quarantine measures.
Some transport operators ask travellers to fill out and carry with them a sworn statement certifying that they do not have any symptoms of a COVID-19 infection. The full document is available to download here.
RETURNING TO THE UK FROM FRANCE
The UK government advice on returning to the UK states that if you’re a resident or visitor travelling to the UK, you must:
- provide your journey and contact details online by completing the linked form. You’ll need to show your completed form when you arrive at the UK border, either by printing a copy, or showing it on your phone.
- not leave the place you’re staying for the first 14 days you’re in the UK except in very limited situations (known as ‘self-isolating’)
In accordance with health recommendations in France and Belgium, you are required to wear a mask when you travel on Eurostar from Monday 4 May. This applies to all Eurostar trains, regardless of whether the destination is Paris or Brussels.
