  1. I have the same dilemma as Ibrahim Mohamed, Im a us citizen and Ive been in Costa Rica for 3 months, I've got the "passe sanitaire" which is the EU covid vaccination certificate. So eventhu I travel with my US passport, can I enter France flying in from Costa Rica? Thanks

  2. This video is out of date, if you are fully vaccinated you don't require a pcr test to travel to France from the UK.

  3. Hi I am from uk and I have been vaccinated already if I travel to France will need to quarantine when I am back to uk?

  4. What proof of vaccine is accepted? What happens if you are in France and the traffic light changes from amber to red?

  5. I hear all kinds of videos talking about what you need to get into these countries, but no one is talking about what can you do and cannot do once you get there while on vacation. I’m not going anywhere until i can see there are things to do and not find out after getting there that its closed or booked up for days.

  6. hi sister I appreciate you for your unforgettable videos that we keep with the situation in the world the question that I have is what about those American citizens traveling from turkey or any other part of the world other than the United States what are the requirements for entering France is it the same for those who are coming from the United States I need a clear answer for that thank you
