Covid-19 Travel Restrictions To & Around France
Renowned for its appealing draws, France is a must-see in Europe.
Ranked the world’s top tourism destination by arrivals, this nation banned all travel with countries outside the European Union.
This was due to a continuously high infection rate for Covid-19 and new mutations.
Exceptions are expected to be made only for a good reason and more information is available on the French Foreign Ministry website.
The state resumed border controls until the end of April 2021.
All travelers from the European countries (over the age of 11) are required to provide proof of a negative PCR test and must be not older than 72 hours.
Exceptions are available only for those transporting goods and others who live in border areas.
Most tourist spots like the Eiffel tower, bars, cafes, cultural institutions, and restaurants are all still closed.
Some categories of retail shops that vend essential products are open. To give a brief conclusion, freedom of movement in France is still restricted.
A nighttime curfew across the country is in effect from 6 pm to 6 am. People are ordered only to leave their homes for an outstanding reason. Travels abroad are still blocked.
