United Kingdom, Italy, United States … Where and under what circumstances can the French travel at Christmas?

The government announced on Thursday that it would drastically strengthen entry conditions for travelers coming to our territory from the United Kingdom. But our neighbors, like some more remote but popular places, are taking action.

From Saturday onwards, a negative antigen or PCR test of less than 24 hours is required to indicate entry into France from the United Kingdom, whether vaccinated or not. Seven days of mandatory isolation is also planned: If the passenger is able to show a negative test, the isolation may be reduced to two days. And travel to France is mutually exclusive to the British.

On Thursday, France decided to tighten its entry conditions from the United Kingdom, facing intense traffic of the Omigron variant across the channel. But the epidemic is pushing for control overseas. Activities directly related to potential French tourists.

The United Kingdom is tightening its entry rules

The United Kingdom could not wait until France closed itself in view of its current health difficulties. So, on Tuesday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his own “screw turn”.

“We urge anyone entering the UK to undergo a PCR test 48 hours after their arrival and to isolate themselves until the results are available,” he told the British public.

Negative test and complete vaccination schedule for Portugal

Among our European allies, the Portuguese were the first to disrupt tourism, while the country experienced dangerous hospital overcrowding a few months ago.

Therefore, from December 1, when all travelers over the age of 12 arrive at the Louisianan border where they want to go to Portugal, it is necessary to provide a negative test, including those who have been vaccinated.

Switzerland’s subtle answer

France’s neighbors are also concerned. Switzerland is one of the countries that is now complicating their access to foreigners, including the French. From December 4, travelers over the age of 16 will be required to submit a PCR test of less than 72 hours.

The exceptions are some business trips (there are many cross-border workers between France and Switzerland) and are motivated by pressing medical reasons. But it is not possible for tourists to deviate from the standard rule.

கடுமையான Strict settlement for Italy

Further south, Italy is also raising its tone to counter the evolution of the epidemic situation. Whether vaccinated or not, a French tourist should come up with his or her negative test: it should be done within 48 hours if it is PCR and 24 hours if it is antigenic. The arsenal does not stop there: you must have proof of your complete vaccination schedule or have a certificate of cure.

In addition, non-vaccinated individuals must stay for five days at the address specified on the form they previously found. These activities are down from this Thursday until January 31st.

North America closes

North America is no exception. Although the resumption of flights to the United States was celebrated long ago as a sign of a reduction in the health atmosphere, the U.S. area was closed. Of course, it is always possible for foreign tourists to set foot in the country, but in order to do so they must not only be vaccinated, but also present a negative test carried out the day before departure.

The Canadian formula for foreigners is as follows: they – except significant Americans, however – must be tested at the airport on the one hand, and isolated until the end is known.

Israel, Morocco, Australia, Japan: These countries stand out

Other possible locations have been chosen to determine the center of the matter. This is especially true for Israel. On Monday, his government announced in a statement that it was extending the closure of its borders:

Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett and Health Minister Nitson Horowitz agreed to extend the current restrictions (border closures) on all non-Israeli nationals at Tel Aviv-Ben-Gurion International Airport for an additional 10 days from midnight on Sunday 12 December 2021. Until midnight on Wednesday, December 22 “.

The other three countries have decided on a similar option. Until December 31st A minimum, Unable to travel to Japan. Same timing and same recipe for Morocco. Tunisia made a different choice, requiring a negative PCR test of less than 48 hours “only”.

Australia, finally, is closed to foreign tourists and has not set the horizon for possible change in the region.
