Travel information for France
As a result of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, the foreign office has issued the following advice: British nationals are advised to exercise caution in public places and follow the advice of the local authorities. French authorities have heightened security measures due to a risk of further attacks. A national state of emergency has been declared and the advice of the Paris Police is currently to keep movement around town to a minimum.
Systematic border control checks have been implemented at all entry points into France and drivers are advised to check that all passengers have the correct documentation on their person to avoid delays or their refusal of entry to the country.
Congestion at the ports and Eurotunnel has increased the risk of migrants trying to board stationary or slow moving vehicles, particularly at Calais. Drivers are advised to avoid leaving vehicles unattended and ensure that all luggage compartments remain locked.
Updated information is available from the websites of the Foreign Office, Eurotunnel and ferry operating companies.
