UK Outbound Travel to be banned

France has today moved to tighten restrictions for UK Citizens crossing the border.

All arrivals into France from 2300 GMT on Friday 17th December will be required to provide a negative PCR test result, taken within the previous 24 hours regardless of vaccination status.

Visitors will also need a “compelling reason” to travel, this includes visiting family, but not tourism or non-urgent work reasons.

Once arriving in France, visitors will need to quarantine for 7 days, but can reduce this to 48 hours with a second negative PCR test result.

The latest restrictions will come as a blow to the UK travel industry once again, with December and January being a popular time for ski holidays in France.
