Since the beginning of August, another European country has completely removed all covid restrictions: all tourists, including Russian ones, are now will be able to enter France without having to follow any entry rules related to pandemic restrictions.
Thus, all tourists, regardless of their country of origin, are no longer required to present a certificate of vaccination, recovery or PCR test when crossing the border. This decision has been officially announced by the French Ministry of the Interior. Also, tourists no longer need to “provide good reasons to justify the need to enter French territory.”
“In the face of a new phase of the pandemic, the border sanitation system is being abolished. This put an end to the exclusionary regimes created to deal with the epidemic associated with covid-19. As a result, as of August 1, 2022, the rules previously applied to travelers to France no longer apply”, the ministry’s announcement says.
However, the possibility for derogation and revision the French authorities kept the rules for themselves. The statement also said that if the virus poses a serious health threat again, all security measures will return. “In accordance with the law, the Government retains until January 31, 2023 the possibility of activating “emergency braking” measures for a period not exceeding two months in the event of the emergence and spread of a new variant of covid-19, which can pose a serious threat to health,” the ministry said in a statement. .
