Travelling from UK to France is now possible again. In order to travel from the UK to France, a negative result from a Covid Lateral Flow Test taken within in the previous 72 hours is required and evidence will be checked at the Folkestone terminal before departure.
This testing requirement also applies to drivers and passengers in commercial vans. Operation Brock is in place on the M20 where tests for all drivers are being carried out by British Health authorities.
Drivers tested negative can then reach our terminal. Positive ones will be looked after by British authorities. If positive is confirmed after a second PCR test, they will have to isolate for 10 days in the UK where accomodation will be provided. Customers who arrive on our terminal without a negative test will be refused carriage.
To reach our Folkestone terminal, all truck drivers must use the M20 and join the queue on the M20 Coast bound where they will be tested. By British regulation, vehicles under 7.5 tonnes are not allowed to join the M20 queue. They can use the M20 Brock contraflow, but drivers will need a negative test before arriving on the Eurotunnel terminal.
The list of tests authorized by French authorities is available on uk.ambafrance.org/Antigen-tests-authorized-for-entry-to-France-from-UK. The M20 Brock and its testing process are now likely to stay active until the flow returns to normal rates. In all eventualities, please follow local police instructions. First trucks have started to arrive on our terminal at 10:00 CET this morning. We are happy to be authorised again to welcome you on our trains.
