Eurotunnel Freight : Travel UK to France (Mon 21/12/2020 18:37)

Following the decision by the French government, travel from UK to France is currently suspended for a period 48 hours which started on 20 December at midnight CET.

The conditions of a possible lifting of this restriction are not yet known. However, we understand that travel may be accepted again soon for drivers able to evidence that they have had a negative PCR Covid-test within 72 hours prior to entering France (expected to be checked by the French authorities on the Folkestone terminal).

We know that it is in no way easy to know where to go and how to proceed to get these tests. We are investigating with health authorities on both sides what could be organised for your drivers and will inform you when we have more details about what is decided.

Meanwhile, if you have the means to get it organised for your drivers, we strongly recommend that PCR tests are planned to time with the expected end of this restriction period.
