Skiing in the French Alps? This is now possible again for Brits. France has relaxed entry restrictions for vaccinated people. From Friday they will be allowed back into the country without a valid reason if they can show a negative test that is not older than 24 hours.
Great relief for those who had already booked holidays and of course for the French ski areas, which are now hoping for a few good months after the corona-related closure of last season. According to the French Ministry of Tourism, Britons make up 15 percent of ski holidaymakers in the country. According to the British media, inquiries for trips to France from tour operators had already increased in the run-up to the confirmation of the easing.
Paris has eased restrictions as the omicron variant of the coronavirus is now also prevalent in France. In Germany, too, Great Britain has no longer been considered a virus variant area since the beginning of January. In Austria, the country is still at this warning level. As a rule, only triple vaccinated Brits are allowed to enter the country. There are no restrictions on vaccinated people in Switzerland.
