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.
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.
All Disneyland Paris packages bookings made by 2nd April 2023 will receive a FREE crossing with P&O Ferries when you arrive between 1st April and 30th September 2023.
