Foreign Travel Advice to France


From 31 March 2022, fully vaccinated (see ‘Proof of vaccination status’ below) travellers from the UK aged 12 and over must provide proof of vaccination.

Proof of Vaccination Status


France will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record at the border. The French Government recognises any vaccination certificates that conform to EU norms. This means your final dose must have been administered at least 7 days prior to travel for Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna or 28 days after a second dose of Johnson & Johnson. For details on how to demonstrate your COVID-19 status in domestic settings in France. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

For travellers aged 18 and over, France will recognise you as ‘vaccinated’ for entry purposes if you completed your initial vaccine course within the last 9 months.

If more than 9 months have elapsed since your initial course, and you have not since received a booster, you will be considered unvaccinated and must require a PCR test.

THE CAUSE


THE WORST FLOODS IN A GENERATION

Sylhet and Sunamganj are worst affected. Muslim Charity partners are on the ground.

The recent heavy monsoon rains have led to rivers bursting their banks, cutting off around 500,000 people in northeast Bangladesh. Many families are stranded and could run out of food within days!

Sylhet and Sunamganj are worst affected with the entire electricity connection cut off all over Sylhet district earlier on 18th June 2022 due to all sub-stations being submerged in flood water.

MUSLIM CHARITY INTERVENTION


Muslim Charity has been working in Bangladesh for over a decade and our Country Coordinator in Bangladesh, Fazlul Karim, said: “The situation here in Bangladesh is absolutely dire. The floods have been described by a government expert as potentially the country’s worst since 2004. Muslim Charity has allocated emergency funding to provide immediate relief to affected families in Sylhet district. We urge supporters to donate generously to help save and rescue lives.”
