    Certain measures in force for travel between France and overseas territories to protect the latter from the Covid-19 pandemic will be gradually eased from Friday, the government said on Thursday. “Compelling reasons (to travel) from or to the Overseas Territories will no longer be compulsory for non-vaccinated passengers, with the exception of Wallis-and-Futuna” and “a negative test for Covid-19 will no longer be asked for boarding for vaccinated passengers”, indicate the ministries of Health and Overseas, in a joint press release.

    Applicable from Friday

    These measures will apply on Friday, the day of publication of the decree. “Wearing a mask will no longer be compulsory when traveling, including by plane”, they say, adding that the mask “remains an effective means of protecting yourself and others in enclosed spaces”. “This reduction takes into account the improvement in the epidemic situation at the national level and the decline in hospitalization levels, even if the fifth wave is not yet over and everyone’s vigilance must remain in order” , underline the text.
