Travel to France is now allowed for New Zealand and Australian Passport Holders.
Some great news for those wanting to head away to Europe for their summer season.
Five weeks after the introduction of a requirement for compelling reasons to travel outside the European area, these rules have been amended to take account of international developments in the epidemic and add a number of emergency situations which constitute compelling reasons.
In a decree to be published on Friday 12 March, it will no longer be necessary to have a compelling reason to travel to or from Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand,Singapore, South Korea or the United Kingdom due to the very wide dissemination of the British variant in France and the specific health situation in those countries.
For travel to and from those countries, other restrictions on movement remain in force (see below): among other things, it is of course still necessary to present a negative PCR test result less than 72 hours before departure.
You are particularly advised to check the travel advice website and strongly advised to limit international travel as much as possible.
