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 :-)

@adspence78, Welcome to SnowHeads

My belief is that you need the 'sworn statement' under the heading 2.2 health measures (the other form no longer necessary for full vacced)

https://www.interieur.gouv.fr/Actualites/L-actu-du-Ministere/Certificate-of-international-travel#from2

Unsure about the Swiss bit -- you could try this page to check -- https://travelcheck.admin.ch/home


Ah, I see that is the "Green" Sworn Statement dated Jan 6th. I guess it'll be fine, and pretty unlikely for anyone to actually ask for it anyway.

Thanks.

If you go this page (The French version) - https://www.interieur.gouv.fr/Actualites/L-actu-du-Ministere/Attestation-de-deplacement-et-de-voyage

Chrome can translate it for you - then click on the Travel From/To UK tab, those I believe are the forms required and again you can use Google translate to assist in filling them out.

But as someone said this morning on the now locked thread they were only asked to present vaccine and test status no sworn declaration....

So happy that we held our nerve with our booking for the end of the month to the 3V. We are driving down via the tunnel.

Just to be clear for 5 adults, all with 2 jabs and boosters.

Prior to leaving the UK

- Complete sworn statement https://www.interieur.gouv.fr/Actualites/L-actu-du-Ministere/Certificate-of-international-travel
- Proof of vaccination. We all have the NHS app but is it worth downloading the TousAntiCovid as well?
- Negative test 24 hours prior to departure. Will be going with an antigen/lft as not long had CV19 so worried that a PCR may still pick up the virus.
- Order day 2 tests for when we get home.

Whilst in France
- facemasks for indoor spaces. Do these need to be a specific type?
- facemasks for lifts. As above or will a buff make do?
- 48 hours before coming home complete Passenger Locator Form

Does that all look right? Any recommendations for the LFT prior to travel? Was looking at C19testing, Chronomics or Randox unless anyone can advise against one of them?

Do we have to fill out a CERTIFICATE FOR TRAVEL TO METROPOLITAN FRANCE

Or just the latter? Puzzled

If you are flying into Barcelona then driving into France later that night, would you need a 24 hour PCR up to 24 hours before crossing the border between Spain and France or because of Shengen there is no border and you are just subject to Spanish entry requirements that is proof of vaccination only?

We (3 of us) are off to Samoens on Sunday, flying via Geneva.

One of the party has taken a PCR today (not sure why as the other two are doing LFTs).

I've just read that the PCR should be in the last 24 hours.

This seems to different to any other country etc, etc.

Any advice, thoughts?

Why do a PCR? More expensive. More likely to detect the virus. More chance your holiday is canned.

@KVet79, I have ordered mine online : delivered to house : carry out the test at home : upload image of result : result sent to your phone - times vary from a few minutes to a couple of hours depending on provider.

Hadn't thought of local pharmacy = airport was out of the equation due to a 6.30 flight !!

Must say I'm getting really confused on the sworn statement, it looks like Brits need to compete the 'Certificate for Travel to Metropolitan France from the United Kingdom' (dated 14/01) and Sworn Statement (dated 06/01)? Or am I way off here?

Also on the sworn statement, what does this mean? Presume they reserve right to random tests if they so desire.

• I hereby agree on my honour to take an antigen test or biological examination on arrival in metropolitan France (traveller aged above 12 years).

I'm filling in the French version of the form as it seems the most straightforward, except for this bit :

Mme/M. :
Né(e) le :
Nationalité :
Demeurant :

Obviously I know my name, birthplace and nationality, but what does Demeurant mean, it translates according to google as Moreover? Anyone have any ideas?

James the English version of the forms are confusing and seem to be incorrect. - If you go to this page (the French version - https://www.interieur.gouv.fr/Actualites/L-actu-du-Ministere/Attestation-de-deplacement-et-de-voyage

In Chrome you get the option to translate to English, do that.

Scroll down and click on the tab TRAVEL TO / FROM UK

If you are fully vaccinated you only need to complete the 3rd form down, the Commitment on honor. Use google translate to assist you in filling it out, I've just done that and it was fairly straightforward, except for my question in the post above.

You shouldn't need anything else as far as I am aware. I think we need a separate thread for assisting people with filling in the documentation as it is not clear due to the different versions provided by the French Ministry site...

Here is as good as anywhere I guess.
I’m researching logistics for a trip to Europe in March from Australia. Both myself and my wife are fully vaccinated.
I will book the flights only and leave everything else once we hopefully produce a negative test the day of our departure. Not ideal but doable given late March isn’t peak season.
Anyway my question is regarding the PCR test for our return flight to Australia. How do I know that the airline (Singapore) and the Australian government will recognise a test from a particular lab? There appear to be labs in the areas that we will likely be a couple of days before flying. How do I know they will return the results in time?
Thanks in advance.

You need to print, complete, scan/pic, and upload for the eurotunnel. And also we carried the paper copy just in case.

You also need to upload your Lft/antigen certificate. And also have it printed (we were
Asked to show that at French passport control)

We have been asked for the pass sanitere once in 48 hours. Husband showed the French version, I showed the British. Both worked. We also have printed copies but haven’t carried them

Honestly it’s very simple. Much easier than I expected

As above
Name
Date of birth
Address
Then it asks where you are coming from eg town/uk
Where you are going eg town/France

Tick tick tick about 3 boxes

Made in means where are you when you are signing the form. Eg town/uk again
Date
Signature

Boom Eh oh!

It’s not that hard I promise (and I was really worried before I looked at it. Went through it. And asked what they mean by ‘made in’
