RESTRICTIONS ON TRAVEL TO AND FROM FRANCE FROM GREAT BRITAIN starting on December 18, 2021

Due to the extremely rapid spread of the Omnicron virus, the French Government decided to reinforce the restrictions on travel between the United Kingdom and France.

These restrictions apply to persons travelling from Great Britain to and from France as of December 18, 2021. No time limitation was placed on these restrictions.

For travel from the United Kingdom to France, travel may only be authorized if some exigent reason is justified.

Only the following visa requests are being issued at present by the Consulate General of France in London :

·         Family member of French citizen ;

·         Family member of European citizen ;

·         Health workers and their family members ;

·         Workers in the transport sector ;

·         Researchers/scientists and their family (short stay visas and long stay visas) ;

·         All passport talents visas of all categories and their family ;

·         Students and interns (short and long stay visas) ;

·         Language professors and assistanecs ;

·         People with an official mission (short or long stay ; with a standard or diplomatic passport

·         Airport workers.

This excludes, in particular, those people who wish to enter France under their Schengen travel rights, or under a visitor’s visa. It is no longer possible to request an appointment at TLS Contacts until any new measures are put in place.

For those who fall under categories that are allowed to enter France, a negative PCR test, or TAG (antigenic) test of less than 24 hours must be presented at departure (independently of the vaccine obligations which may apply).

In addition, all persons coming from the United Kingdom shall be required to register, before travel, on a digital platform that will indicate, in particular, their address in France. They may be subject to administrative order to isolate themselves at their residence in France, as the case may be.
