What reason did he give for essential travel???? Did he have tests before he went??
Unvaccinated Passengers
Unvaccinated passengers wishing to travel from the UK to France, will need to meet criteria defined by the French authorities that the travel is essential (supporting evidence will need to be presented at border controls). French nationals, as well as residents in France, are exempt. The full list of what constitutes essential travel is on the French Home Office website.

French health declarations
To enter France you must complete the following forms which can be found on the French Home Office website.

a "Sworn Statement" – is required for all passengers.
a "Travel Certificate to Metropolitan France" – is required for all passengers.
These must be completed for all passengers and presented digitally or printed to border control authorities.

If you meet the criteria to travel to France you will also need to do the following:

1. Negative COVID tests
All passengers over 12 years of age require a negative result from a non-NHS PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before travel or a non-NHS Antigen (lateral flow) test taken no more than 48 hours before travel (find a private test provider).

At French border controls you will need to present digital or paper evidence of the negative result from the private test provider.

2. Provide passenger details
Arrivals from the UK must provide contact details, including the address they will be staying at, to the French authorities via an online form. Important: ensure you select "Royaume-Uni" (United Kingdom) in the drop-down menu on this form as a country of origin.

Submit pasenger details on the "passenger eOS" platform
Quarantine
From 12 February 2022, travellers from the UK to France who are not fully vaccinated no longer need to self-isolate on arrival.

Travelling with minors (under 18)
We would advise that you check the requirements before travel via the French Consulate website. The requirements may vary dependant on whether the parents/guardians are vaccinated or unvaccinated. Visit uk.amberfrance.org for more information.

Upload your documents
Prior to travel, you can upload the required documents/results detailed above to your booking by logging into your account/booking and completing your declarations. Failure to do so will result in manual checks being required which will delay your departure.

I was In France 3 weeks ago and all i needed was proof of two jabs not the booster ! If i did need a booster to go , then i would not have gone over simple as that .... If you are using Eurostar make sure you download the two pdf's of your vaccine proof prior to arrival at Folkestone. There is a link at the bottom of the API form.

That saves you the hassle of having to go in to the terminal, and show your vaccine proof to get your wind screen pass on the train. Do the same obviously for your return from Calais ! I was surprised just how easy it was to get over there and fully expected hassle at the check points but no it was just like the old days !!

Hope this helps !

Time between 2nd jab and booster is irrelevant. If you have had the booster, you are considered fully vaccinated, as far as France is concerned. Just don't leave it till a week before, need to allow time for the NHS app to be updated with your booster jab. I heard it takes up to 2 weeks to update.

Proof of vaccination status
France will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record at the border. The French government recognises any vaccination certificates which conform to the EU Digital Covid Status Certification framework, illustrating that you are fully vaccinated with a vaccine authorised by the European Medical Authority. This means your final vaccine dose must have been administered at least 7 days prior to travel for Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna or 28 days after a second dose of Johnson & Johnson. For details on how to demonstrate your COVID-19 status in domestic settings in France, see the Coronavirus page. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

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).

Are you still classed as fully vaccinated if you’ve had your booster jab more than 9 months after the second jab?

I’ve had both jabs but not the booster yet and have no plans on getting the booster. I’m going to France on the 23rd of July and was hoping the rules would change by then that the booster won’t be required but if nearer the time it’s still required then I’d begrudgingly have it done. I had my second jab on the 8th of July 2021 so only gives me 2 weeks to get the booster for it to be done less than 9 months after the second jab

I don’t really want the booster, but would have it a couple of weeks or so before my trip if it was still required but was wondering where that would leave me on being “fully” vaccinated

On the current rules, depends when you had your 2nd jab. I think if it's more than 5 months ago, you are not considered fully vaccinated. So if you had your 2nd jab before Feb this year, you will need a booster before you go

Vaccinated people ✅
From Saturday 12 February 2022 onwards, vaccinated people do not need to take any COVID-19 travel tests before they travel to France from the UK.
Prior to departure, vaccinated people authorized to enter France from the UK will have to present to the transport company (depending on their situation):
1. Proof of vaccination
⚠️ Since 1 February 2022, in order for their vaccination schedule to continue to be recognised as complete, persons aged 18 years or older wishing to enter French territory must have received a booster dose of messenger RNA vaccine no later than nine months after receiving the last mandatory dose.
2. A sworn statement
A sworn statement certifying the absence of COVID-19 symptoms and of any contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to their crossing.
