Dear clients and partners,

Due to the exceptional Covid-19 pandemic, many countries including France are still applying strict restrictions regarding travel of all kinds.The French Prime Minister with his Home Secretary announced on Wednesday 07th May that France would keep drastic travel restrictions through its borders up until 15th June (applicable to all countries within Europe, countries outside the Schengen zone and the United Kingdom).
Similar measures have been implemented on various degrees by Jersey and Guernsey.
