International residents living in around Europe have for the most part been unable to travel abroad for over a year. 

For many this has meant being unable to see close family and friends back home.

Many are desperately hoping to travel this summer but with the rise of Covid-19 variants and ongoing restrictions at borders it is not clear whether they will be able to travel abroad.

Please take a minute to take part in this quick survey of readers. We will use the information and responses you provide for a future article on travel.

  1. I just completed your survey and only after I submitted it did a message appear saying thatI consent for you to use my name. THIS FEELS ODDLY DISHONEST ON YOUR PRT. I WOULD NOT HAVE SUBMITTED HAD I KNOWN IN ADVANCE. I DO NOT CONSENT.PLEASE DO NOT USE MY NAME. PKEASE WITHDRAW MY SUBMISSION.

    1. Hi j.lovenduski, the article states just above the survey that “We will use the information and responses you provide for a future article on travel”. We won’t use your name without your consent and will withdraw your submission as requested. Have a good day!

  2. Sadly, I must agree with j.lovenduski. I was surprised to see that I had consented to the use of my name after I had submitted the survey. Had I been notified at the point my name was requested, I could have made an informed decision. As such, I refuse to consent to have my name being used. Please withdraw my submission.

  3. Mea culpa. I just read the introduction to the survey and I see that it clearly states that my name will be used.
    I apologize for the above comment. Feel free to use my survey and name.

    I think this is a very interesting and useful upcoming topic. I would be curious to learn the results of the survey.

    Cheers, Michael.D

    1. No worries, Michael! Thanks for responding to the survey – we’ll share the results in an article, hopefully soon. Have a great day!

  4. Of course I am going to travel . The only ones the French don’t want are the British . Brexit has come and bitten them on their bottoms . Oh Gawd the Empire really has crashed and I am an Old Etonian laughing my head off .

Tell us: How strict are French border checks

We know there are a lot of rules in place right now for travel into France - but just how strictly are these being enforced in reality? If you have recently travelled to France, share your experiences with us.

Depending where you are travelling from, entry to France can now require a vaccination certificate, negative Covid test, health declaration and proof of the essential nature of your journey.

Meanwhile for arrivals from the UK, post-Brexit rules are in place for everything from passports to pets, visas to sandwiches.

But just how strict are the checks being done on the ground?
