Passengers arriving from France will need to quarantine on arrival to England in their own accommodation and will need a day two and day eight test, regardless of their vaccination status.
With effect from Monday 19th July, UK residents arriving from amber countries who are fully vaccinated will no longer have to quarantine.
But the UK Government has now said this will not apply to France following the persistent presence of cases in the country of the Beta variant, which was first identified in South Africa.
Anyone who has been in France in the last 10 days will need to quarantine on arrival to England in their own accommodation and will need a day two and day eight test - regardless of their vaccination status.
This includes any fully vaccinated individual who travels through France from either a green or another amber country to reach England, the Government said.
The Test to Release scheme remains an option for travellers to shorten their quarantine period should they test negative after day five, a statement said.
