Vive la France as vaccinated travellers welcomed back

France will reopen its borders to foreign tourists again from next week, with vaccinated travellers no longer needing a Covid test to enter.

The new rules apply to vaccinated travellers from Europe, Australia, South Korea, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, New Zealand and Singapore, while vaccinated travellers from the United States, much of Asia, Africa, the Middle East and North and central America can also visit if they have a negative test.

There are 16 countries that are not on the list including India, South Africa and Brazil, who are all battling a third wave.
