What is the travel situation for coming to France?
France has a system of classing countries as green, amber or red for travel. The colour determines the rules set by France for people travelling from those countries and for people travelling from France to them. The UK is classed as amber, meaning that fully vaccinated people are allowed to enter France with minimal formalities but unvaccinated people can only enter if they have an 'essential reason' to do so and a negative Covid-19 test. France's rules are only part of the picture and you also need to note the rules in the corresponding country. The US was classed as green on France's travel list on June 18.
