Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

It's quite possible they'll say adults require booster and pcr.


They’ve never required a vaccinated person to have a PCR test to enter France yet, so I can’t see why they would start now? PCRs are there to detect variants - they know perfectly well what variant is in the UK - what possible reason could they have to require a PCR test?

Honestly - given the noises coming out of the various resorts it’ll be a pre-flight antigen at most.

I have no thoughts on vax status, but remember this is origin based not passport - so why would they ask every French person coming from the UK to have a booster (even if within 7 months of jab 2) when they wouldn’t be required to have one when they’re in France?


Both good points I was just thinking what might happen as additional measures that on the face aren't too onerous but pure speculation, your argument is sound and I hope you're right.

@roq1000, my guess is that it will be an LFT prior to departure and on that basis that is what I’ve ordered!

With 361000 new infections today in France (an average of 275000 for the last 3 days) a few infected Brits won't make a difference to policy, if they are concentrating on the closeset crocodile to the canoe.

I was thinking of going for a fortnight at the end of this month, but if I were to test positive over there, it would make it logistically tricky when I got home. I have chatted to a couple of mates and seen various group messages. To avoid catchjng it I would have to be a hermit.

Family of five and four of us have covid as we speak, two triple jabbed, one double, one single (due to ages), we got it roughly the same time and all have similar mild symptoms. I also had a more severe dose of covid in March last year.

I also know lots of people that are triple jabbed and have recently caught it, catching whilst abroad is a possibility, not that it would put me off going.

Yeah, we came to that conclusion too. Biggest worry now (for a possible 22nd departure), is testing positive here!

@andy from embsay, @under a new name, I am not immune and yes I have had 3 vaccinations, but becoming infected would create problems for me on return, that's personal. Its a personal risk assessment.

@Jonny996, have a feeling this is increasingly unlikely given they're still debating the domestic vaccine passport. Good news for those with kids though that it seems they've removed the 12-18 group from needing a booster by the weekend.

Also seems like as per parliamentary timelines it's now not possible to pass in time for a 15th introduction, but that also means it's almost impossible surely to pass a renewal of the law blocking people from the UK which expires on the 15th...

Possibly but I can't see given the update that the vaccine passport law no longer has time to pass how they could renew the UK ban in time for the 15th so that's surely as good as confirmed for those waiting to know about this weekend?

@Damianowen7, Shocked - just realised we will be in the same boat.......hadn't even occurred to me that there was a time limit on having the booster! We had our 2nd on 5 July and could of had our booster in Dec but only date I could get was 2 days before we were due to go to Italy (didn't want to risk side effects that we had with our 2nd jabs) so I just figured we'd get them done when we got back....... Not considering of course that we could come back and test positive on our day 2 tests! Covid symptoms now subsiding but can't get boosters until Feb......which puts us over 7 months between jabs.

We were hoping to get to France in March so anyone that can shed any light on how we stand would be a real help.

@KathE, get your boosters in Feb and you'll be fine for March. They don't require that you have the booster within a certain time to be eligible going forward, more that, after 7 months, if you haven't had your booster, then you won't qualify for the PV. Once you've had your booster (even if it's 8, 9, 10 months after your 2nd jab), you'll qualify for the PV again (just not in the interim period). Does that make sense?

The UK travel ban is just a time limited presidential decree isn't it?

For those without boosters it looks like the senate is reducing the time limit to 4 months after 15 Feb. It’s 7 months now I think. So I guess if looking to go at half term, that might be relevant.
Does seem 12-17s will be back to the current system which allows for negative tests. Wonder if they’ll keep that at daily tests or go back to the every 3x days they had before?
