France is likely to reopen its borders for fully-vaccinated travellers from Qatar, holding a valid visa, from 9th June in view of the improvement of Covid-19 situation in Qatar and France.
The announcement was made by the French Embassy in a post on Twitter, stating that it plans to reopen visa service in the coming weeks.
“As of 9 June, Qatari or third-country travellers from Qatar, if they already have a fully valid visa and are otherwise fully vaccinated, may re-enter France without quarantine on arrival,” Embassy said in an “Advice for travel to France” post.
After departure from Qatar, the travellers will have to submit proof of a complete vaccination cycle – 2 weeks after the second injection of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca Covid19 vaccine, or 4 weeks after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or 2 weeks after single injection for those with a history of Covid-19, it said.
Further, travellers will have to submit a negative PCR test within less then 72 hours or a negative antigenic test within less than 48 hours.
The Embassy further said that for those who do not already have a complete valid visa, the embassy is currently planning to reopen the visa service in coming weeks, although no date has bee mentioned at this stage.
