Paris is latest capital to ban unvaccinated U.S. visitors

France is requiring all U.S. visitors be vaccinated if they want to enter the country,  following EU recommendations in the wake of a US Covid spike, CNN reported.

A French government decree issued on Thursday bumped the United States and Israel from the country’s “green” list, down to “orange,” effectively prohibiting nonessential travel to France for unvaccinated visitors.

Under France’s rules, unvaccinated travelers from either country will still be allowed in provided they have an essential reason for travel, however they’ll need a negative Covid-19 test before travel and must quarantine for seven days on arrival.
