French authorities specified that as of next Monday, May 31, the details of the seven-day quarantine that will be imposed on travelers from the United Kingdom before the expansion in that country of the so-called Indian variant of COVID-19.
From Monday, any traveler from a country outside the European Union and without residence in France who arrives in the country from the United Kingdom will have to present a negative test, PCR or antigens, carried out in the previous 48 hours.
Following the example of Germany, the French Government announced that there would be a tightening of the measures for travelers from the United Kingdom.
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry indicated that upon entering the country they will have to serve isolation for seven days.
However, and unlike other travelers from India, Brazil, Chile or Argentina, the authorities will not carry out systematic controls in their homes due to the low incidence of COVID in Great Britain, the spokesperson said.
Until now, it was enough for people entering France from that country to present a negative PCR test carried out at most 72 hours before boarding the plane, ship or train.
In the last week, France has registered an average of close to 12,000 daily positives, a weekly drop of 6%.
