According to the French government website, people arriving from one of these 12 countries can only enter France if they have “pressing grounds” for travel.
They must provide a negative PCR test carried out less than 36 hours before boarding and a sworn declaration.
Travellers will also be subject to a mandatory 10-day quarantine and provide proof of quarantine location, which will be checked by police or gendarmerie.
