Irish ‘back door’ to France slammed shut

[ January 11, 2021   //   ]

All UK passport holders entering France from Ireland will need to present printed evidence of a negative result from a private (not NHS) pre-departure Covid-19 PCR or other antigen test taken up to 72 hours prior to their arrival, reports ferry booking agency Motis.

They must also complete a Covid-19 declaration form. UK passport holders who permanently reside in the Irish Republic are exempt but must have proof of Irish residence such as a scanned utility bill. The measure applies to truck drivers as well as private travellers.
