I now have my first shot booked for the 19th, they estimate 11 weeks before the second one. If we need both for Ringmeet then I'll be out, I currently don't appear to meet the criteria to enter France at all. I don't want to book a channel crossing and have France or Germany change their mind last minute.

Can't you go straight to Germany on some boat?

No routes and it would take forever. I'd really like them to extend the car train further into Europe one day so we can get to Germany much quicker while totally avoiding France. Can't be that difficult.

There are ferries from Kingston Upon Hull to Belgium and the Netherlands, but none directly to Germany. But that's theoretical. Even if the UK allowed travel to mainland Europe, chances are that the EU (or Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium or France) won't let Brits in if they really get overrun by the Delta force. Stay safe, my friends.

You don't and won't need vaccination to travel, it'll either be "fine to travel with fresh negative test or proof of full vaccination" or "UK is full of VOC, no travel at all".


PS: How do I know this? Any hard requirement to have vaccination with no alternative will lead to *massive* shouting and likely a swift removal from office for whoever did it, because every politician ever has used every opportunity to ensure the public that there will be no backdoor to forced vaccinations.

Current status: I'm in, at least for a day or two. Got some nights booked with the "Special" guy, let's see.

Yeah you don't need one now, France just has a list of 'compelling reasons' to enter the country without. Holiday isn't on it. Will keep an eye on the regulations.

"Transit on the way to somewhere else" isn't on the list either? You're not staying there for longer than you have to after all :p

I'm reasonably sure that transit without stay in the country is allowed in France. So if you leave the same day you get there, nobody should care. At least that was the last time I checked down here. Right now I can freely go back to France for shopping and shit
