Entry requirements for France and the Netherlands

FRANCE

France's borders have reopened with few restrictions for fully vaccinated adults and their children. 

Currently, everyone aged 12 and over will need need to produce a negative lateral flow test taken within 24 hours before their departure to France and complete a 'sworn statement' that they are symptom free, which can be downloaded from the French government's website. 

The rules for adults who are not fully-vaccinated are much stricter. They still need an essential reason to travel, and must self-isolate for 10 days on arrival, provide a negative lateral flow test, their contact details and complete the sworn statement.  

Full details of the latest requirements are here on the gov.uk website

THE NETHERLANDS

Fully vaccinated travellers can visit The Netherlands, but they must produce a negative PCR test taken with 48 hours of travel, or a negative lateral flow test taken with 24 hours. Unvaccinated travellers are not permitted to enter The Netherlands, except for certain essential reason. Full details are here

 

Testing requirements for coming back to the UK

The testing rules for returning to England, Wales and Scotland are all slightly different. 

RETURNING TO ENGLAND

Fully vaccinated adults and children aged 5 to 17 now need to take a negative lateral flow test by Day 2 of their return to England. They must book the test before they travel, and anyone who tests positive must then self isolate for five days, and produce two negative lateral flow tests at the end of this period. 

Unvaccinated adults must take PCR tests by Day 2 and on Day 8 of their return, producing a negative result each time, and self isolate for 10 days. They have the option of taking a private test to release on Day 5.

RETURNING TO WALES

If you are fully vaccinated and returning to Wales, you must take a lateral flow test by Day 2 of your return, and isolate for 10 days if you are positive. The Welsh Government recommend that you isolate until your test result is confirmed. 

In you are not fully vaccinated, you must take a pre-departure lateral flow test within 48 hours before travelling to Wales and present proof of your negative result on arrival. Travellers must then take PCR tests on Day 2 and Day of 8 their arrival in Wales, and isolate for 10 days.
