France will require all travelers outside the European Union to show a negative covidium test, regardless of vaccination status, reported The Independent.

After a regular weekly meeting of the French Ministry of Defense, government spokesman Gabriel Atal confirmed to reporters that from next Saturday all passengers, vaccinated or not, will have to show a negative test when entering the country.

The move comes after a number of countries around the world tightened entry requirements for foreign travelers due to the outbreak of the coronavirus ion micron strain, which has spread to several EU countries.

The decision of Paris will also apply to the citizens of Great Britain.

Unvaccinated travelers are only allowed to enter France if they have an important reason for coming to that country, and they are required to show a negative PCR or antigen test within 24 hours at the latest.
