I'm confused. I live in france and cannot go to the UK to see my family unless there is a very good reason, death etc?, French rules. The Uk requirements for a visit are another matter, not relevant here.
My brother-in-law who lives in the UK has a second home in france and cannot come because he does not meet one of the 13 conditions to be able to come. He has had 2 jabs but cannot come. Leisure travel from the UK to France does not appear to be allowed (by the french), so what do you know that I don't. I'm not trying to be funny because I'm sure that everyone wants to know the answer to this one.

That is certainly my view, after all, brex****, covid and the cost (eventually to the taxpayer) of course there will be a desire to reduce stirling being spent overseas by a large proportion of holidaymakers, especially to the eu. Nothing better in the treasuries eyes to retain it and tax it.. Same as with testing..

Book your day 2 and 8 tests well in advance
I felt there were various risks to me actually getting into France so decided to book them while I was over there. It wasn’t a problem but the cheapest 5 providers were sold out for the days of my return so I had to pay a little bit more

Not sure it needs a separate thread but it may be worth a mod posting a sticky at the top of here with maybe places to purchase / get tests and the prices

I've looked at a few of the government approved providers today in preparation and for me, the below seems the best option (there was one cheaper but currently requires an approx 30-40 min drive from mine to drop off the tests for return)

Anyway, for £81 this place will send you a day 2 and 8 test kit with prepaid return royal mail packs that you simply drop in your nearest priority mailbox (these can be searched for) and I have one at the end of my road!

https://www.rtdiagnostics.co.uk/product/day-2-8-test/

Now to find a cheaper fit to travel test, but these seem to be comfortably over £50 currently and I'm fed up of trawling test sites for today lol


Ps priority postbox search, just tick the box for show my nearest priority boxes

As i suggested half way through this thread, perhaps we should have a seperate thread for those that have successfully been and returned to France. What tests they had and when, what paperwork, any challenges they got, cheapest government website found for all the tests including day 5 early release, how long for tests to be turned around etc etc?

I have looked all over the Web and can not find any supply of LF Test that you send off for results.

You can do a NHS LFT test at home and when you report the result you get an email back confirming whatever the result is. It should be enough but its a significant risk turning up at the tunnel with it and getting turned away. There is no test facility there so you would be buggered.

What I don't understand is why it states you can not use a NHS facility for LF Test . I am not really sure what that has to do with the French Government, I can go to a drop in center and get the results email to me for Free

Agreed. I checked and found the same as confirmed for example on the eurotunnel website. A self test doesn't have any validity or confirmation from someone 'official' (although there are very obvious ways around this anyway)

As far as I am aware the fit to travel test has to be via one of the approved Gov suppliers resulting in a negative certificate. It can be a LFT but still needs to be sent off via post/courier.
