The Full UK To France Travel Guide - Including Health Pass And Testing Requirements

The Full UK To France Travel Guide - Including Health Pass And Testing Requirements


This article was written in November 2021, but last updated April 2nd, 2022.

In early November - not long after France reopened their borders to us the first time - we visited Disneyland Paris. This was our first trip abroad since the pandemic. We've also been a few times since. And yes, travel has changed. In this article, we'll go through everything that's needed for travelling to France.

Vaccine Requirement


To travel without testing to France travellers 12+ must be fully vaccinated as stated on the French government website and the Consulate general of France in London.

All travellers 12+ must have had their primary two vaccines. That's two doses the of Pfizer, Moderna, or Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. For travellers aged 18+ only, if it's been 9 months since the date of your second dose, to be considered "fully vaccinated" you must have received your COVID-19 booster dose.

For travellers who are not "fully vaccinated" as outlined above - this includes minors under between 12 and 17 - a pre-departure LFT is required to be taken within 48 hours of travel. This must be a test purchased from a private company. The test you will need is the "Lateral Flow Antigen Test Kit", which costs just £17 each. You can then take the test within 48 hours of departure, upload it, and get your negative certificate to show at the border. Children under 12 are exempt from all the rules and can travel freely.

Vaccine Summary


  • To avoid testing, travellers 12+ must be double jabbed and adults 18+ must be double jabbed AND boosted (if it's been 9 months since jab #2)
  • Travellers 12+ not "fully vaccinated" must take an LFT test like this one within 48 hours of departure.
  • Travellers under 12 can travel without a vaccine or test requirements.

  • To prove your vaccination status, you're going to need your NHS app that can generate your travel QR code. You will be asked to show this before you enter the country and/or board your flight.

    Health/Vaccine Pass


    Starting March 14th, 2022, the Health/Vaccine Pass is no longer required. This means anyone can now enter Disneyland Paris again and children no longer need to be tested daily.

    Sworn Statement


    As of March 31st 2022, the Sworn statement is no longer required.

    UK Passenger locator form


    Starting March 18th 2022, returning British citizens are no longer required to fill out the passenger locator form.

    Summary


  • Get your NHS QR codes from the NHS app for all fully vaccinated travellers
  • Order your pre-departure LFT for any unvaccinated travellers
  • At the French border, be prepared to show your passport (which has to be stamped now), and your NHS QR codes
