Changes made to covid test requirements for UK-France trips

Lorry drivers travelling to France from the UK who have spent less than 48 hours in the UK no longer need to test negative for coronavirus before travelling.

The change to the rules was announced the on the UK Government website yesterday.

Instead of presenting a negative test result, the drivers who have been in the UK for under 48 hours should give evidence of the time of their trip to the UK. The evidence needs to be provided at check-in for the return journey.

French authorities will also recognise proof of a negative coronavirus test taken in Ireland if the test was taken less than 72 hours before departure from the UK for France.
