Paris, Jul 17: The French secretary of state for European affairs announced on Saturday stricter coronavirus rules for travellers coming from the United Kingdom and five EU countries, effective July 18, as the Delta variant continues to spread across the region.
“For those coming/returning from Spain and Portugal, but also Cyprus, Greece, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom: an antigen or PCR test of fewer than 24 hours is required for the unvaccinated,” Clement Beaune tweeted.

All unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travellers from these countries will also need to prove they are travelling for an essential purpose.

The list of high-risk “red zone” countries will be expanded to include Cuba, Indonesia, Mozambique and Tunisia. Travellers arriving from these countries must have an overriding reason to enter and go into a mandatory quarantine for 10 days, in addition to having a negative PCR test and retesting upon arrival.
