Quarantine-free access to France

From 9th June, all vaccinated travellers entering into France will not be subject to quarantine regulations. If visitors are not vaccinated they will be required to supply proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the country. Children under 11 years old are exempt. If a negative PCR test cannot be provided, visitors must be in possession of a RT-PCR test exemption certificate, issued from the French Embassy or Consulate, and then complete a mandatory seven-day quarantine period in accommodation approved by the public authorities. After isolation, a further PCR test will be required.

Explore the modern architectural landscape of France

There’s more to French architecture than Renaissance chateaux and Baroque palaces. Escape the crowds and discover unassuming neighbourhoods where you’ll often find a more contemporary landscape. Firminy near St Etienne is home to several of Le Corbusier’s modernist masterpieces, while the glass-fronted Louvre-Lens Museum in Lens is already a legacy.
