Americans and Britons must be fully vaccinated to travel to France
Under current rules, travellers from the US and UK will also have to supply a recent negative Covid-19 test when they are able to visit from June 9
Reader question: You state that the rules for visiting France from the UK and America from June 9 are that you can come if you have been vaccinated. Is this both vaccines? What if you have had just one?
Fully vaccinated EU citizens and citizens from a handful of other countries rated green in France's traffic-light travel system will be able to enter the country without taking a PCR test from June 9, the government has said.
Britain and America are both currently rated amber - which means fully vaccinated Britons and Americans can enter, but must also supply the results of a recent negative PCR test.
Under the French travel system, people not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 from amber countries, which include the US and UK, will only be able to travel to France from June 9 for essential reasons.
To be counted as ‘fully vaccinated’ travellers must have received all necessary doses of one of the four vaccines currently licensed for use in the EU – Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson (known as Janssen) – and more than two weeks must have passed since your final dose of the vaccine.
Therefore, people who have had Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca vaccines will be required to have had both doses. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, obviously, only requires one dose.
In all cases, the 14-day minimum period after full vaccination in order to ensure full protection applies.
