Will they let me in - France?

Please help, I'm not sure if I can go to France or not.

Had my first jab in May 2021 then second jab 30th Jan 2022

There isn't time to get a booster before I'm supposed to go in early April.

What do you think will I get turned away at the border?!

No you’ll be fine. Only four months since the last one.

I would check that. I believe you need to be triple vaxed. Just been to Paris that’s what they needed to let me in to events ( I went to the agricultural show). Not sure about getting in to the country.

I hope I’m wrong but this suggests that you are not fully vaccinated, you are coming in from an “ orange” country and you need a compelling reason to visit

Travellers aged 18 and over who had their full vaccine course over 9 months ago and have not since received a COVID-19 vaccine booster must follow the rules for unvaccinated passengers to enter France (see below).

You aren’t 9 months overdue.

Has anyone been recently who has
Lapsed vaccines and no booster? I am going on September and am in this situation.

Ok I hope you are right, I cannot find anything that says those rules have been dropped.

@DesertStorms unless you get yourself up to date by September, you will need a compelling reason to visit.

Really? I thought you just had to have a PCR ?

If I had the booster now I still done know if that would be sufficient as there is another six months to go and it’s ten months since my last vaccine. It’s all a mess

Unvaccinated travellers (12 years or over, even if accompanied by vaccinated adults) have to provide the result of a negative PCR carried out less than 72 hours prior to departure, or an antigen test (in paper or digital format) carried out less than 48 hours prior to departure.

If your 2nd jab was less than 9 months before you travel you are good to go.
You don't need a compelling reason to travel or a PCR test.

But check out the official French website:

Thank you all for your help. I just find all this red tape & changing rules so confusing!
