As we all know, there is currently a 2-week quarantine in place for anyone arriving to the UK from France. However, as yet, there has been no announcement from France to indicate that quarantine would be imposed on visitors from the UK.
Politics aside, the infection rate in France has increased to a rate of around 43 per 100,000 (largely as a result of infection rates in Paris and Marseille) whereas in the UK it is around 21 per 100,000. So, providing nations and politicians can keep an objective view and follow ‘the science’ as we’re repeatedly told they are doing, it should be relatively easy to predict when and where quarantine restrictions might be imposed.
Therefore, it remains the case that those arriving in France from the UK do not have to quarantine. Holidays, viewing trips etc can therefore still go ahead as planned, as long as you are prepared to quarantine once you return to the UK.
The website of the French Foreign Affairs Ministry currently states that quarantine-free travel from countries in the European area (including the UK) will be kept under review, at least every 15 days.
