PARIS – France has returned to the list of destinations for international tourists who have been vaccinated, removing the need to test for coronavirus for vaccinated Europeans and allowing vaccinated tourists from most of the rest of the world, including the United States, to enter negative test.

The relaxed rules take effect on Wednesday, opening up the possibility of strengthening the French tourism sector. The arrival of tourists, however, will not be possible from countries that are still struggling with the growth of the number of infected people and the appearance of worrying variants of the virus. The “red list” currently applies to 16 countries, including India, South Africa and Brazil.

Outside of Europe, most of the rest of the world has been classified as the “orange zone” in a new tourist guide published by the French government on Friday.

Vaccinated tourists from “orange” countries – including the United States and Britain – will no longer be quarantined upon arrival and will no longer need to provide reasons for coming to France. They will, however, be required to have a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours or a negative antigen test not older than 48 hours.

European visitors and those from the seven countries classified as “green” – Australia, South Korea, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, New Zealand and Singapore – will no longer need to be tested if they are vaccinated, reports the Associated Press.
