The UK has stated they will review the status of travelers from France next week.
For those traveling from the United States and accepted EU nations, you will still be required to present proof of full vaccination with any vaccine approved by the FDA or the European Medicines Agency.
In addition, you will also need to present a pre-arrival covid test and pass another covid test taken within two days of arrival to avoid the 10-day quarantine. Finally, you’ll need to fill out a passenger locator form.
There has been no statement yet for those hoping to visit Wales or Northern Ireland. Currently, those areas require a 10-day quarantine for travelers and nomads who wish to visit.
