Since 7th May 2021, international travel in England has been regulated by a traffic light system with the introduction of red, amber and green lists of countries and territories.
While travellers entering England from red and amber list countries and territories have had to self-isolate for a 10-day period, travellers from green list countries have been exempt from quarantine.
On 8th July 2021, the UK Government announced that from 19th July 2021 travellers entering England from amber list countries and territories who have been fully vaccinated with an NHS administered vaccine in the UK will no longer need to self-isolate upon arrival.
However, despite France being on the English amber list of countries and territories, the UK Government announced a few days before the entry into force of the new rules that fully vaccinated adults returning to the UK from France will still have to quarantine.
