France added the United States to its travel red list for covid-19, according to a decree published in the country's official newspaper this Saturday (January 1).

Under the new rules, unvaccinated travelers from the US will have to be quarantined for 10 days with security controls.

Previously, they had to self-isolate for 7 days without controls.

As before, unvaccinated travelers from the US will also need "a compelling reason" to travel to France, as well as an antigen or PCR test performed less than 48 hours before departure.
