Do I need to take a test if I am going on a Day Trip?

Updated 10/02/2022

Current entry rules for the UK mean you will need to follow testing requirements if you are not fully vaccinated to enter the UK even if you are travelling on a Day Trip. From 11th February 2022, those who are fully vaccinated are not required to take any test to enter England, however you must check the rules for entering France.

See below for updated entry rules in to England.

Travellers must continue to fill in a passenger locator form up to 48 hours before arrival.
