No checks for me, either way.
I also did the pre departure test by email from the bank. Apparently if you drip the sterile liquid onto the tester without having dipped the nasal swab into it first, it gives you a negative result.
Who would have thought it😂

Their not worried about food or bait its not, allegedly, the UK saying you cant take it. Dairy products are different, always have been.

Having just visited the Uk after a long 19 month I was amazed at the difference with mask wearing. Over here in France everybody will wear a mask when in shops or other public places and yet when I walked out of Stansted airport masks were a rarity. Trains were full of unmasked people with just the odd old fellah like me wearing one. It is to early to tell but me fear is that the UK with see cases of Covid soaring again and then the problem will be whether France will close its borders in response. An interesting autumn ahead.

Looks as if the gravy train that all these testing sites may be hitting the buffers soon, if the press is anything to go by, as Boris is believed to be planning on abandoning the traffic light system and the attendant tests in the very near future. Won't help us as have already paid out a fortune simply to be allowed back into the UK!

Incidentally, France continues to post C-19 infection numbers that are at least 25% lower than the UK's!

Practically the same as that, got back at the weekend but did my C19 antigen at 9am (French time) last Thursday had the email back with certificate by 1pm nice and simple process no problems when back at passport control hardly any vehicles on the ferry on the way back from Caen I was through in minutes but I have to say on the way out you normally clear passport control in 15 to 20 minutes it took over an hour an a half to clear.

Twas a slow week at Rainbow but managed a few carp 28,50,56 & 67 and a sturgeon around 35ish.

Interesting that the pressure is on to remove the requirement for tests for EU countries especially.

When you buy the test you get the reference number to put on your return form that you "might" get checked.

All you need is the reference number.

I know folks who've not returned the actual day 2 test when back in the UK 🇬🇧


All you need is the reference number.

And won't it cause a problem if you're not using easyjet?

I personally know of two anglers who've had bait taken but obviously as you rightly say they won't put their hands up to it as they fear the "you know the rules, got what you deserve" response.

Hi,

I believe we should be filling in the amber document? I read on the French gov site that UK is on the amber list.

There is a colour coded map on the link.

Sounds like you are asking a risk analysis question, so far as I can see nobody has said they have had bait or food confiscated so the odds are in you favour, but there again if some have been caught would they admit it with all of the publicity on what you are allowed to do and they are embarrassed because they have broken the rules?

If a few anglers had been caught would it make any difference to your decisiom?

I am not back out to France until next year, under the current rules, I will rely on getting baits while I am in France even if they cost me more than what I normally pay, why take a chance?

I know this has been asked before but things change.
So a question to people who have been recently or are going soon, where are people buying their tests from?
That's the one before you leave France and the one when you get home.
Someone mention Expert Medicals but they have been removed from the government list, so you have to be careful.

Entered France yesterday. Customs didn't even look in the car and our vaccine certificates and signed declaration sur l'honneur were merely glanced at. Could have come though with a butter mountain, a side of beef and 100kg of boilies had I known in advance how simple the process would be.. As for the pass sanitaire our NHS Vaccine Certificate were accepted in our hotel, and the bar we went into didn't even ask!

Masks are being worn by most but in general, everything seems very relaxed.

I got this posted in a thread I started the other day:

Ken I tried to use Chrome and Firefox on my pc and couldn't find the tick box to get past that stage. I used chrome in my mobile and it worked a treat. Give that a go 👍

We used the wife's tablet and was able to access the test straight away.

And if you're still not clear, look it up on the Eurotunnel website, as the instructions can't be clearer. If you're still struggling, should you be in charge of driving a car in France?

If your double jabbed you need proof of your vaccination ie: NHS app or printed copy of it the card when you had your jabs is not sufficient fill in a health declaration form when leaving then on return 72 hrs before travelling take a test for proof of a negative test taken then fill in your passenger locator form and have your 2nd day test information to fill in on the form as well and submit the form.

Managed to get through to them on the phone and they said it was a server issue, and they hoped to have it sorted by Saturday. I still have a couple of weeks to wait until I go, so will give them until Monday. Failing that will have to be one of the more expensive options.

Yep correct.

If you order in advance they will sometimes send it so it's there before you travel....... Then you self swab, stick the swab in a tube, package it in pre paid envelope and return via their method (expert medical that i used and many others use a royal mail priority post box system)

Lots can change before yo go though lol

The day you return to England is day zero, you have to have a test booked for on or before day 2 in the uk.

The test needs to be booked before you come home so the reference can be entered on your passenger locator form.

And a day 2 test in the uk, but no need to isolate unless you get a positive result from day 2.

If the test in France is positive, you're not coming home lol

So to clarify.........If you are double jabbed then you need no test going out, just a test coming back, which i have just been told the lake sorts it out by running you to the Pharmacy on the Friday before coming home.

Iíve just returned from holiday (not france), I ordered my day 2 test from a company called randox. If you go on airline websites they have normally partnered up with these companies and you can get a discount, at no point did I have to enter my flight details, the discount codes are on the airlines webpages

In paid 43 quid for day two tests with the discount code

The rules are clear and as mentioned below do say you can't use the nhs tests...... Couple of easy reasons being so the nhs does not subsidise peoples holidays and also that the tests need some proof of who took them and when etc.

At one point, France did state that home tests were not acceptable for entry to france. Makes sense as there is no real confirmation of who actually did the test unless it is monitored / taken in a controlled environment.

Just a bit of info re day 2 tests.
We ordered 2 to be delivered at home.
They where packed in one bag and would not fit through the letterbox we where still in Holland at the time as got caught by France going to amber plus.

Luckily the next door neighbour took them in.

And shop around as prices vary .
They are coming down as well.

Unfortunately what ever we think about the rules they are the rules.

The wife saw somebody reffuced entry to the tunnel as they did not have a paid for PCR test when leaving the uk

One positive nobody has checked the car rescently whereas we used to get checked nearly every time.

That would be easier Ken but with the Government we have they have said we cannot use the free NHS testing kits and it must be a private company kit, Randox have made something like 100 million all throughout the pandemic probably a backroom handshake somewhere along the line an associates wife cousins uncle.

This is the one I've ordered But there 2 day test is a bit pricey so went with Boots for that at £75.00 plus eases the doubt that your not going to get shafted as |I've heard and read a few stories regarding test not turning up etc...

See, that makes even less sense, but that is not surprising with this lot in power (left hand/right hand; which is doing what to whom).

From the kits I have seen, the NHS self-test kit is more or less identical to the 'private' ones. Me and the missus self-test every other day and submit our results to the NHS. They in turn send me a confirmation email saying that I am Covid-free...so why can't I use a sheaf of printed emails to prove I am free of the virus. I could even perform a self test in front of the border forces...the result comes back in less than 30 minutes.

I fully accept that control is needed via the tests, but FFS make the 'rules' more user-friendly and understandable.

I think to gov website is referring to the free NHS tests:-

"NHS tests
NHS tests cannot be used for the purpose of pre-departure testing before travel to England.

You cannot take an NHS test abroad with you to use on yourself before you return."

I might have missed it but I cant see anywhere is says you cant buy the test in Uk to take with you? Just says it needs to be an antigen test or PCR test?

3. Why??? - Only £29 notes Ken and easier than leaving the lake closest place is 30 minutes away and 49 euro's
4. From whom? I went with Boots obviously you can get it a bit cheaper but know a few that have used them now all good I know of one angler that bought a cheaper kit and it never turned up left him chasing them so he bought another from elsewhere in the end turned up the next day the first one he ordered turned up 2 days after he left, obviously you need to enter the test code on the PLF.

Expert Medicals were about the cheapest and I gave up trying to find cheaper when others keep adding higher postage costs on. Expert medical add about £7.99 to that for 'delivery' so around 35 ish

Leaving france is easiest to use a French pharmacy at around 26 euro, that's my preference.

I would say our treasury Ken when they collect the revenues, only four weeks-ish until I'm out to Rainbow now.

Friday overnight ferry booked with cabin
Declaration form printed ready
Antigen test purchased to take with me
Day 2 return test purchased
Only thing I need to do now is fill in the passenger locator form just prior to travel and sort the fishing gear out.

Yesterday, France reported 3,919 new case. The UK reported 25,056...

And STILL they insist on returnees from France taking Covid tests. Yet, one can enter France without any test whatsoever. All the papers are reporting on this and asking, who's making the killing on unnecessary tests?

That's the latest and current rules as per our government that has not changed since the 19th July.

All that changed is that france is no longer amber plus and so the normal rules for travelling to and from an amber country applies

Andy, you can only reiterate what's on the Gov site so many times . I'm afraid ultimately people have to decide for themselves. I think we both agree the rules at any given time are fairly clear accepting they do change.
The travel providers, Eurotunnel particularly in my opinion , explain the rules and what's required very clearly

The government website is clear

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-testing-for-people-travelling-to-england

As long as the company can provide the results as detailed in the above link then you'll be fine

Information that the test result must include
Your test result must be in either English, French or Spanish. Translations will not be accepted.

You must provide the original test result notification. It must include the following information:

your name, which should match the name on your travel documents
your date of birth or age
the result of the test
the date the test sample was collected or received by the test provider
the name of the test provider and their contact details
confirmation of the device used for the test, or that the test was a PCR test
If the test result does not include this information you may not be able to board, and may not be able to travel to England. If you arrive without a test result that includes this information, you might have to pay a £500 fine.

Need someone to comment that has returned from yesterday which is when the tests has changed again on the government website, itís all a money making game and totally contradicting, Iím still no nearer to what I need, I contacted the c19 site that sells the tests and their reply was check the government website.

You can buy food in France believe it or not. And unlike much of the UK supermarket shelves are fully stocked😂😂😂😂 But on a more serious note I wouldn't have thought a few packets of bacon and sausage will get you a night in the cells.

Cool, we will finally get to the farm lake on the 4th Sept now.
We are going by euro tunnel, has anyone risked taking food over for their trip and been stopped etc ?

Bait wise the lake supplies it so will be safe on that front.

Good luck to all those who can now finally get out there, with no restrictions on way home 🙌...

Day 8 not required if double jabbed, this is from gvmt website:

France from Sunday 8 August
If you arrive in England from 4am Sunday 8 August, and you are fully vaccinated in the UK, USA or Europe, you will not need to:

quarantine on arrival in England
take a day 8 Covid-19 test
You must still book and take a day 2 Covid-19 test.

If it's eurotunnel you'll likely not be allowed to travel if the tests are not booked or the locator form completed.

Not sure on the other crossings and how they are checking etc.

You can't complete the PL form without a code and certainly with Eurotunnel you have to download it to their site to get through the border checks.
You only need to book 1 test to get a code so if you choose a cheap day 2 test only you will get you through.
It's not the right thing to do but you will be able to complete the form.

Yes you can take a lateral flow test with you for the pre return test but it will need to be from a private company not NHS and it will need to produce a suitably signed certificate to show a negative result.
There are companies that do this.

After Sunday, if you're double jabbed you will not need the day 8 test when coming back from France.

No test going to France
Antigen or pcr test before coming home
Day 2 pcr test booked before coming home to put reference on locator form
No isolation
No day 8 test

If you are double vacced, you dont need a test before you go out but you do need proof of vaccinations.

At the moment, coming back you need a negative test plus you need book the 2 and 8 day PCR tests and enter the details into your Passenger locator form.

I think!

It may change!

In fact, you no longer need a pre travel test to enter france if you are double jabbed

https://uk.ambafrance.org/COVID-19-rules-for-travel-to-France-and-the-UK

If you have been fully vaccinated you will therefore no longer have to present a test in order to enter French territory. The period of time you must wait following the final dose has been reduced to seven days (double dose, or previous infection + one dose) and 28 days (single dose)

(your travel carrier like eurotunnel or ferry etc may have other rules for travel)


If not double jabbed then it could be hard work if I'm reading this correctly and it's 24 hours for the test


1/ From Sunday 18 July (00.00 a.m.), if you have not been vaccinated you must present a negative PCR or antigen test less than 24 hours old to travel to French territory from the UK.


Eurotunnel rules are in line and up to date with French info

If you're travelling to france their requirement is antigen or pcr, it's on their and ours government websites.

Pcr - test within 72 hours of travel
Antigen - test with 48 hours

For postal tests, even 72 hours is cutting it fine

Cheers guys, Id like to use a local site but the closest one is 34 miles away so will definitely be an online booked test posted and then post back for result, I came across the one in the link you provided the other day for the Antigen test but I thought it was supposed to be a PCR test to travel out reading again conflicting info on this information some say antigen is fine other sites say PCR swab tests.

I used dam health as they are local, they were good for me and results emailed within a couple hours.

But look at their reviews and there are some bad ones, prob the same as most others.

I would suggest a local one you can go to for the travelling out test, as even 72 hours (pcr) is not much time when the test has to be sent back and result waited for.

Antigen is fine for coming home, mine in France was 26 euro and result in about an hour emailed to me. Ps antigen is fine for getting into France too

Who have people booked their PCR with before leaving for France, who's reliable as I've heard a few stories where test results are not coming back in time for travel, I've had a look online at a few for the PCR before leaving such a minefield massively differing costs and reviews.

Got the local Medical centers details whilst I'm out there to book the return test only 49 euros.

Is it relatively straightforward to get a PCR test in France, prior to coming back to the UK? And if returning on a saturday, what day would you get the PCR test so you get the email in time to show border force.

Michael Green...

Raab actually came out with the Reunion link in his comment, clearly not knowing the Reunion was not part of mainland France but an island some 10,000 km away!. Remember, this is the same guy who was unaware of the importance of the short sea crossings from Dover. (See Vossy's link.)

I read in the paper today that our ministers put France on the Amber+ list because they mistakenly took the figures from the Reunion Island, what a joke, seems they're going to downgrage to amber soon. In several pepers now.

Apologies to one and all. I jumped the gun a bit there. However, there is some speculation that the need to quarantine on return from France will be dropped after a review on 4th August.

To answer several questions, you can have an Antigen test from one of many pharmacies at a cost. I paid 25 euros for mine and you upload it to your train booking as you did going out. You DO have to quarantine for 10 days on return (i am on day 6) and i've been phoned every day. You can of course pay for day 5 early release.

That's not correct. Unless you have been vaccinated in the UK you have to quarantine when returning from France. I live in France and will have to quarantine for 10 days if I visit the UK as the rules now stand.

It wouldn't make sence to still have the Amber plus rules.... When if your a French citizen you can come on holiday to the Uk and not quarantine.... But people that visit on holiday have to quarritine when we come back.....

I think the key difference will be the double vaced element to the rules

What you can and cannot do in quarantine
You must quarantine at the address you provided on the passenger locator form. This can include staying:

in your own home
with friends or family
in a standard hotel or other temporary accommodation
Amber list arrivals cannot quarantine in a managed quarantine hotel Ė these are for red list arrivals only.

You must quarantine in one place for the full quarantine period, where you can have food and other necessities delivered.

Quarantining safely
As soon as you arrive at your place of quarantine you should, as far as possible, avoid contact with other people in the place where youíre quarantining to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

You should stay in a well ventilated room with an outside window that can be opened, separate from other people in your home.

If youíre staying in a hotel or guest house, you must stay away from others who did not travel with you. You must not use shared areas such as bars, restaurants, health clubs and sports facilities.

Stay 2 metres apart from other people staying there at all times.

Visitors
You cannot have visitors, including friends and family, unless theyíre providing:

emergency assistance
care or assistance, including personal care
medical assistance
veterinary services
certain critical public services
Going out
Unless youíre at risk of harm, you cannot leave the premises where youíre in quarantine. You must only exercise inside the place where youíre quarantining or in the garden. You cannot leave the place where youíre quarantining to walk your dog. You will need to ask friends or relatives to help you with this.

Glad you got back and didn't need to be placed in hospital. But 4 negative tests before you went? Makes one really question the accuracy of them in view of how quickly you came down with the virus.

And really begs the question can you trust the tests?

Yes i was double jabbed. That doesn't stop you contractng or spreading the virus, just allegedly reduces the symptoms. I wasn't hospitalised but very ill with all the symptoms i.e loss of smell, shivering fever, fatigue, headaches and heavy chest cough.

'What a ball ache and glad itís all over and managed to get back to the U.K. ok 👍' - thanks, but only due to an admin error in the end or i'd only be leavind today!!!

Ok, was unsure whether to post this but thought i would as a word of warning for you all. I travelled out to France for 10 nights a couple of Wednesdays ago on my own. Quickly after arriving i felt unwell and ended up hardly fishing for several days. I decided to buy a home test kit from the local pharmacy and soon realised that i had contracted Covid despite 4 negative tests on the days leading to departure. I had to drive 30 mins to a proper laboratory for a PCR test which also proved positive. I now had to isolate at the lake for 10 days after which i could only come home if i tested negative. I was warned by the many medical staff that it could and often does take months to test negative. You have to arrange and pay for your stay in France with no exceptions. On my 10th day i took another test and was told i had again tested positive so was in for the long haul!!! I phoned work and started making the costly arrangements being obviously devastated. By an absolute stroke of luck i got a mail form the test centre saying i was negative. Within 6 hrs i was packed up and on a train at the tunnel having uploaded my negative test. As i hit the UK i was looking at my phone out of boredom and realised i had received a second mail from the test centre saying positive! I am currently still isolating having got home without leaving my van from start to finish. I have finally tested negative today and still feel very rough but am very aware of how bad things could have been. I was very lucky and have certainly learnt a valuable lesson. Be very aware you cannot come back to the UK without testing negative and you will get no support or information.

There are many reasons you might not answer the phone, not least of which would be going out to post your day 2 or day 8 test. That's before you get into mowing the lawn or having a shower etc.
All of which are quite legitimate.

Quite a few papers running the story about France returning to amber soon.

In actual fact they are saying that France could return to amber, from a category nobody knew even existed, the so-called 'Amber Plus' level. As far as I know, France is the only country currently in the Amber + category.

And you think this lot know what they are doing............!

I returned yesterday and correct that you have to fill in the test references on the locator form. I travelled on eurotunnel and the form had to be uploaded along with the negative French test result before travelling.

Made it seamless coming back, French customs confirmed with me that I was double jabbed and everything else was as normal. Into the port and through the checks in about 20 mins total including the small queue of other passengers.

Already been phoned this morning by an advisor confirming my understanding of the testing and isolation rules etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you need to put the relevant code supplied when you purchase your day2&8 test on the passenger locator form. Without it you can't send the form.

Due to go out 31st August. If France goes red before that date, we will call it off. If it goes red while we are there we'll have to like it or lump is as far as hotel isolation is concerned...or, we could stay there until it goes back to amber again!

As of today, France's cases per 100,000 is just shy of 150. The UK is within a squeak of 500! I know where I'd rather be right now!

I just returned from France last week. I'm double jabbed but you do still need a negative pcr (within last 72 hours) or a antigen test (48 hour hours) to enter france, along with proof of your jabs. This was all checked outbound, however different story coming back - nothing checked and let straight in!

Also they didn't care about my bait

Due out end of September, already moved this trip 3 times since May 2020.

I am double jabbed but do I still need a negative PCR test before entering France?

I know there is a good chance that this could well change but just wanted to know where I stand at present.

Oops. My mistake. Its not on the red list but the relaxing of restrictions does not include france while the gov look at the beta variant numbers.

So you'll need to quarantine upon return and pay for tests.


From Monday, UK residents who have had two COVID jabs will no longer have to isolate after returning to England from amber list countries such as Spain, Portugal and Greece.

France was meant to be part of the plan, but last night the government said it would be excluded while it looks at latest data on rising cases of the Beta variant in the country.

It means travellers must continue to quarantine for 10 days.

They must also have a coronavirus test on the second and eighth day - however the option of ending isolation early on day five with a separate test will remain.


The policy switch has angered Britons currently on holiday in France, while Easyjet's boss said it "pulls the rug" from people already on trips to the country, which is introducing its own enhanced testing regime for non-vaccinated people arriving from places where the Delta variant - not Beta - is considered especially prevalent.


People who have not been double jabbed will have to test negative for COVID-19 (via PCR or antigen) within 24 hours of arrival in France if they are travelling from the UK, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, the Netherlands and Greece.

The beta variant only accounts for 3.4% in mainland France. The overall number is higher because they have very high numbers of the beta variant in la reunion which is out near Madagascar but is a French protectorate.

Does anyone know a website that tracks daily or weekly cases of beta variant in France?

Quarantine isnít a major issue for our family but if it turns to red in the next few weeks then will need to get back sharpish.

The consensus seems to be France would have gone to red had it not been for the impracticalities of getting 10ís of 1000ís into hotels.

Iíd like to see the weekly figures myself to form a view. Scientists are suggesting the numbers of beta arenít really rising but drew comparisons with the Seychelles that was fully vaccinated but saw a rise of 70% in beta that caused major hospitalisations.

Website anyone pls?

France is still amber!
No tests needed to enter France from today for all double jabbed... so ALL the restrictions are what the UK have initiated.
If lake owners continue to move bookings then consider yourselves very very fortunate.

Well.... That's France cancelled till further notice. I feel it for the lake owners but if they have your money and you can't go as it's now a red zone you should get a refund or move the booking without question IMO.


A lot of unhappy UK based anglers out there no doubt..

LOL... I just hope the peeps using.... 'work parties' to get fishing in France are ruled out as well...

Yes I felt if anyone would impose stricter rules it would be France on Uk travellers

You can cut the 10 days down to 5 with an extra test which Iíll probably end up doing but the annoying thing is Iím sure they said theyíd make no short notice changes like last year when everyone ended up queuing at the ports but yet here we are again with a change made 3 days before it takes effect.

Either vaccines work or they don't. Why bring the beta variant into it? The delta variant is the most transmissible.

So what's the real reason for the (yet another) u turn on travel to France? The rise in cases from SA is more BS, we have 5 times more cases here, due to government pandering to India because of Brexsh1t related mess. What game are they playing at? My view is still they don't want anyone taking their money and spending it in France, being the most popular travel destination for brits.

Has anyone heard of any penalties actually being imposed for quarantine non compliance?

Fully vaccinated travellers returning to England from France will still have to quarantine for 10 days from Monday.

From 19 July, adults who have been jabbed in the UK arriving from other amber list countries will no longer need to isolate.

France will remain on the amber list.

But the government said the planned relaxation of rules would not apply there due to "persistent presence of cases" of the Beta variant, which was first identified in South Africa.

Does anyone know how strict they are on checking documents at Portsmouth? Travelling on the overnight ferry to Caen on Friday for a weeks fishing. 4 of us all double vaccinated but 3 have not had the 2nd jab for 2 weeks. Everyone has a negative PCR, do they even check the covid vaccination dates? I am hoping not!

Has anyone done one of the longer ferry crossings recently? I've got one coming up Portsmouth to Caen early September on the overnight crossing but was wondering if they have consolidated the trips as I would presume there are less passengers daily for all timings, I heard rumblings this was the case and there were some disruptions to timed crossings just wondered if anyone had had their crossing re arranged to suit the Ferry companies.

David, I think it unlikely that when positive test angler arrives at the port that he will be forced to remain in France. To the contrary I believe that it will be a case of having to isolate when he gets back home. We cannot be sure until such an event happens so fingers crossed it wont be an issue.

Found this info Jim "If you test positive for COVID-19 while abroad you will need to follow local public health advice regarding self-isolation. You should expect to self-isolate in the country you are in, so you may need to stay longer than planned. Plan ahead for any possible delays to your return home and the entry requirements at your next destination." Presumably then you cannot stay at a fishery as you will not be able to self isolate unless you are the only person on the lake for 10 to 14 days, so where can you go? It certainly puts me off travelling!

France hints it could lift travel restrictions for UK travellers

Despite the fact the number of cases is currently growing in the UK, France appears to be preparing to relax rules governing people travelling there across the Channel.

"With the vaccination campaign advancing well in both France and UK there could be a co-ordinated decision soon to remove the UK from the orange list," French transport minister Jean-Baptiste Djebbari has told the BBC.

"We are looking at the evolution of the health situation and want to make a decision as quickly as we can."

The FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to France, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

I see now that on the Gov website it has a link to all the test providers for cost comparison, not had chance to have a proper look at it but did spot one company doing the day2 return PCR for £40. This was a home test as well, be good to find a package that provides both exit from Uk and day 2 tests, would make it all less complicated.

Whole Covid thing is going round in circles just hope a vaccination beating variant doesn't appear in the near future but a very good chance that it will!

Can anyone tell me, what are the customs like at Pompey and Plymouth...


Similarly, what are the postes de douanes like in St Malo and Roscoff?

Bad or not, he still used a disguise to run his scam.

David: That's the way I see it.

Does that now mean a test before you travel abroad, a test before you return to the UK and another test within 2 days of getting back to the UK?

Michael Green Grant Shapps making a big thing out of reciprocity in the House today, making out that it is those nasty foreigners who are not playing ball. (Google Michael Green for more on the duplicity of Mr Shapps.)

Looks like quarantine on return being stopped for the double jabbed on July 19.

Yes, but PCR tests still required. Those lovely Tory donors that supply the testing services must be kept sweet

Is there any advantage / disadvantage to antigen test over a PCR? Or is it just a case of whatís being offered closest to your venue

I know PCR is meant to be more accurate but just thinking in terms of ease of doing it while on holiday

Yes from today it's about 50 euro for PCR tests. 25/30 euro for antigen test. The free testing was not reciprocated by other countries hence the new charge for tourists.

I think it is very likely if the need for quarantine for the double jabbed is removed then testing at best will stay the same or maybe even increase.

For me, I'm waiting to hear if the paid private tests will still be required which I suspect they will.

Did you have to go into room when coming back as you hadn't pre filled in all the paperwork? Or did everyone have to do it?

Eurotunnel has added some extra forms to their site that now need filling and uploading if travelling with them

i got back from etang le villaine on sat had an excellent weeks fishing and would reccomend highly
friend and i travelled in his ford transit using the chunnel
going into france was really easy we were only asked for our passports and booking details
the van steering wheel and handles were swabbed for drugs and fire arm residue took 5 mins
we drove straight onto train and theres nothing when you get into france
coming home was more difficult booking in we were sent to a room were we had to fill anther form in show our covid test results that we had while in france
going through french customs no problem just checked documents
english customs showed documents and questioned to were we had been van pulled to side questioned again and 5 min look inside the van then on our way
all in all was a bit of a hastle coming home but well worth it

MPs in UK have summer recess on July 22 or 23 so I think we know travel will be less restrictive from then until September when the swine return to work.

In case it helps anyone, the below do on site 24 hour results with either antigen tests or pcr. If you have a site close to you, £29 for the antigen which can be used for travel to France
