No need for COVID tests

    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, JUNE 4 - Starting on June 9, France will allow all COVID-vaccinated EU citizens to enter freely, announced French transport minister Jean-Baptiste Djebbari. He noted that the country will no longer require a negative COVID test for this category.

    Currently and until June 8, to enter France a negative PCR will be required with the sample having been taken less than 72 hours prior to crossing the border or landing at the airport.

    Tourism Undersecretary Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne said that after the new regulation comes into force on June 9, however, a certificate of vaccination will be all that is required.

    The government has divided the countries in the world into three color-coded categorie and being vaccinated is enough for any of the green-coded countries: all of Europe except the UK, Australia, South Korea, and Israel.

    A negative COVID test will instead be required for orange-coded countries: basically all the countries in the world including the US with the exception of "red-coded" ones where there are mutations of the virus that are considered dangerous, such as South Africa, India, and Brazil. For those arriving from the latter countries, quarantine will be required. (ANSAmed).
