Please check official Government and Embassy websites - - but unless something changes, then from 1st August, it's unlikely that any covid restrictions at all for entry will persist.

But please do double check - - I'm on the Camino in Portugal, not at home in France, so that I have less access to the direct sources than I would like.

A few days ago, the French Government suffered a defeat in Parliament, meaning that the proposed extension to Sanitary Pass restrictions into the country past the end of the month was defeated.

You started me thinking about some of the stories I am hearing about redirected flights, and now I wonder if I prepared for landing in one country and the airplane wound up in another country how they handle the absence of proper paperwork for the unexpected landing somewhere--but maybe by the time I fly over there, most places will have tossed requirements anyway!!👏

Here's a reason for my circumspection.

As things stand now, the French Senate has reintroduced a possibility of demanding a negative test of foreign travellers.

And entirely reasonably, introduced amendments to allow travellers from France to the rest of the EU to be able to comply with the EU Pass system, which persists 'til June 2023.

Bottom line for pilgrims coming to France though, and particularly the Francigena ones, is that things are quite likely to become easier from next month, although that is still speculation at this point. The Senate has not introduced amendments to practically allow the Pass requirements to persist into August.
