Starting Sunday, people entering France from other European Union countries must present a negative Covid PCR test taken within 72 hours.
These new rules don’t apply to “essential trips” nor to people who cross the border daily to work in France, or those who work in transport.
The measure was announced in a news release from the office of the Elysée Palace on Friday.
The release also reiterated that France had already imposed stricter measure for travelers from countries outside of EU borders (including the UK), who not only have to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours but also quarantine for seven days. They must also take a second test at the end of the quarantine period.
