Upon arrival, passengers from France must submit a negative PCR test within 72 hours. Ten-day quarantines are required at home or in the hotel, with mandatory tests after the second and eighth days. A negatively paid PCR test (equivalent to a minimum of 160 Euros) can halve the duration.
In addition, a “locator” provides all information to immigration services that allow police to control quarantine compliance must be completed prior to departure via mobile phone. Quarantine is monitored through frequent phone calls and unannounced house visits by competent authorities. Those who are absent customers are fined.
