Updated list of green and orange classified countries

Decryption – The rules imposed by the French authorities for foreign travel vary according to the color of the destination, now classified as green or orange. New countries are turning green, including the United Kingdom, Mexico and Turkey.

Despite the local outbreak caused primarily by the Omicron variant, the Covid-19 epidemic marked a severe recession worldwide, accelerating the resumption of international travel. As a result, French authorities, who regularly update their travel recommendations to foreign countries, now consider half of them as health-safe destinations. Effective June 9, 2021, classification according to the color of the countries of the world depends on the level of transmission of the virus and the presence of the form of Covid-19. If it is initially composed of three and then four colors, there are only two shades from February 4: GreenThe most optimal level, and OrangeThe most hostile.

What changes this color code for our movement? Both sheds match a level of departure and return restrictions, depending on whether you have been vaccinated or not. This reading grid has been developed for vaccinated travelers, who, in and from all countries, are no longer subject to compulsory reasons or PCR testing.

At first glance, something very complicated, then. Other than that, and here the shoe pinches, Each state is free to impose additional measures on travelers, Such as a quarantine test, or even a pure and general restriction on access. Classified as “green” by the government and Europe, Japan does not accept, for example, the arrival of foreign tourists, including French. And there are almost as many rules as countries …

In accordance with a non-binding recommendation adopted by EU member states and effective March 1, vaccinated travelers of any nationality will now be able to enter the Satash region without a valid reason or PCR test. It does not change anything for travel in France: French authorities already welcome vaccinated people in its territory without major restrictions.
