What are the covid rules for ski holidays to france



Updated 13.01.2022

People travelling from the UK to France will no longer have to self-isolate on arrival, or show proof that their trip is essential, from the morning of Friday 14.01.2022.

However, the requirement for a negative COVID test, conducted 24 hours before visiting, remains in place.

Those who provide a negative result will also need to be fully-vaccinated.

This positive move comes ahead of the busy February half-term period.

Expectations are building that France may imminently announce it is lifting the blanket ban on British travellers.

Last night 11.02.2022 French politician Alexandre Holroyd tweeted: “Following numerous discussions with the Government, considerable reductions in health measures at the borders will be announced very soon.“More details here in the coming days.”Several holiday companies are telling customers they believe the French ban on all Brits is about to be scrapped.

What are the Covid rules for ski holidays to France when travelling from the UK?

France recently eased its Covid restrictions to make travel to and from the UK a little easier following a rise in French Covid-19 cases. The French government widened its list of ‘compelling reasons’ to visit the country on January 6th 2022.

The expanded list of valid reasons to visit now allows people from the UK to travel to France for business purposes, and UK nationals who are a resident in another EU Member state can now transit through the country when returning home.

Holidays to France from the UK are still off limits under current rules. All flights are affected, commercial and private jets.

Anyone wishing to travel to France from the UK can only do so for essential reasons, as defined by the French government, regardless of their Covid-19 vaccination status.It is not yet clear when the ban on holidays to France from the UK will be lifted, but the French government is expected to make an announcement later this week. This announcement could see travel rules eased, according to reports.

What are the Covid rules for those who can travel to France?

Those who are eligible to travel to France from the UK are required to meet the following requirements:

  • All travellers aged 12 and over must present a negative PCR or antigen test result taken within 24 hours pre-departure

  • Before travel, anyone coming from the UK must provide contact details, including the address they will be staying at, to the French authorities via an online form

  • All travellers must present a completed international travel form to prove the reason for essential travel. This can be found on the French government’s website

  • All travellers must provide a completed ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form self-certifying they are not suffering from symptoms associated with coronavirus and have not been in contact with confirmed cases in the preceding fortnight. 

  • Upon arrival in France, all travellers must self-isolate for 48 hours, after which a negative PCR or antigen test is required to leave quarantine. If the result is positive, you will be required to self-isolate for 10 days. Only those taken by a professional at a testing site or pharmacy are valid for leaving self-isolation
