Good neighbours

It’s because of the Beta variant which is rampant in France. This is no different from France having special measures for those entering from the UK earlier this year.

Ah, the EU. The most disunited and divided organization ever.

I don't know if you've heard, but the UK isn't part of the EU anymore.

Looking at the UK government amber list and rules, Japan is on the amber list but proof of double vaccination there does not seem to have been approved by the UK.

@Jsapc, which is why i said divided. Some leave, other fight among themselves while others are left to suffer on their own.

Woudl you say it's more or less "disunited and divided" than the ex-USSR? Or ex-yugoslavia? Or the two Koreas?

The government changes the rules daily making it difficult to book overseas holidays. Japanese can travel to the UK but Brits can not travel to Japan. Brits can not travel to America but Americans can travel to Britain. Brits living in Japan can travel to America provided they didn't visit home in the last 14 days.

Hey if Boris Johnson's UK made sense then maybe I would be surprised.

But when the UK eased restrictions on USA citizens entering but retained the on Cadana which has a higher portion of its population Vaccinated and a lower infection rate, well the silliness just continues.

Tiny political retribution from the most inept UK government ever.

Notably after Brexit, UK and France are at odds more often than usual. Now Covid restrictions are adding more salt to the wound, further antagonizing the already weak relationship between the two neighbor nations lately.

Have UK and France not been traditional quarrelsome neighbors?..

It's more about having Boris Johnson's government as a neighbor the problem.

Isolationist, nationalist and incompetent.

I think that would be England and France. There was an alliance between France and Scotland dating from 1295 (generally called the Auld Alliance in Scotland). The terms were that if either country were invaded by England, the other would also attack England. Some legal historians say the alliance is still in effect. It's common for anyone from Scotland driving to France to stick an Écosse mark on their car to avoid any bad feelings upon seeing the UK mark.

People wishing to Travel during this Pandemic are not smart. I suspect it's mainly the tabloid media that are "egging" on the need of the people to travel on vacation.... most who are in their right mind, would not travel overseas should those same Tabloids be promoting the "stay at home" and promote the "visit your local attractions to support your local British community" approach.

@zichi - we're talking tourists here. Why would you want to go back and forth to the UK for example when you're resident in Japan as an example....
