I have booked Santiago, Chile (SCL) - Paris (CDG) - Manchester, UK (MAN) for Dec 30. Both arriving and departing flights from France are in terminal 2E at Charles de Gaulle. However, it's not clear to me if I need a covid test or not.
The airline, Air France, gives me this message (my bolds) https://www.airfrance.cl/CL/es/common/page_flottante/hp/news-air-traffic-air-france.htm
NEW CONDITIONS OF ENTRY IN FRANCE NEW ANTIGENIC TEST ACCEPTATION Updated on 24 December 2020, 03:00 PM Paris local time Air France has been informed of the new decree specifying the conditions of entry or transit in France and Overseas Territories. This particularly concerns the acceptance of antigenic tests, which must now enable the detection of N protein of SARS-CoV-2. These new conditions only concern antigenic tests, there is no change concerning other tests such as PCR or RT-Lamp. The list of all tests accepted is available on the following French Health website
However, going by this info https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/en/coming-to-france/coronavirus-advice-for-foreign-nationals-in-france/
- If you are transiting for less than 24 hours in an international zone;
I am led to believe I don't need anything more than a couple of declarations to be on my way? The transit is around 5 hours. This is my first time flying though and I'm not sure what counts as an international zone. I suppose by not exiting terminal 2E I am never really entering France?
I will be using my Italian passport by the way, and I must enter the UK before Dec 31st at 11pm due to brexit, in case anyone was wondering about this ridiculous trip I'm forced to make in such convoluted times.
