Interested to learn if you filled in the french authorisation (downloadable from the gouv.fr website) for inter-europe travel and if anyone asked for it ... or even gave a hoot???
To any other brits, make the most of this week to visit the "green zone" before any "reciproccal quarantine rules"..
Yes we filled in the form and sent an email to the French customs with our personal details and flight details. We did not see any customs officers at Calais at any stage. On arrival back in Blighty we had a warm welcome from the Border Force waiting for us... I mean it. They were very nice and no problem there either.
NOTE for most Brits: It woud seem that France wil be completely opening its borders on 15 June (of course if our UK "Supreme Leader" sticks to his quarantine we will all effectively be banned from all travel). At the moment, basically, one has to be either a French citizen or a French resident.
