France to allow vaccinated travellers from Qatar without quarantine

Doha: France will reopen its borders for travellers from Qatar, who are fully-vaccinated and holds a valid visa, from June 9 in light of the improvement of Covid-19 situation in both France and Qatar. 

This was announced by the French Embassy in a post on Twitter adding that it is working 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.

“Upon departure from Qatar, presentation of evidence of a complete vaccination cycle - 2 weeks after the second injection of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, 4 weeks after the injection of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 2 weeks after single injection for those with a history of Covid-19,” it added.

In addition, travellers will have to present a negative PCR test of less than 72 hours or a negative antigenic test of less than 48 hours.

“For those who do not already have a fully valid visa, the embassy is working to reopen the visa service in the coming weeks, with no date at this stage,” Embassy added.
