Back to your second home in France from the UK, by the end June?

It is almost shooting at a moving target, new interviews, ministers correcting each other and finally to be corrected by the prime minister himself etc. Yesterday, Friday, our dear European Commissioner Ylva Johansson (Sweden) announced that there will be a more or less common Schengen approach to open the EU borders. She has, by the way, always been a bit optimistic, on the politically correct side of the spectrum, crime figures going down, down, down in Sweden. Not true.

Today news from Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, Secrétaire d'État, foreign affairs, inviting all those tourists from the UK to make their holyday reservations. There will be light at the end of the tunnel, before July, see this article in The Telegraph. He also asks his compatriots to do something, in order to save the tourist season and the French economy.

Monday morning June 8, UK's quarantaine in force, so from now on the principle of réciprocité starts to make life more difficult, as announced by the French government two weeks ago, self isolate after entering France from the UK:

" Le gouvernement français met en place, à compter du lundi 25 mai 2020, un dispositif de quatorzaine volontaire en fonction du pays de provenance des voyageurs.

Pour les voyageurs en provenance de pays européens dont les autorités auraient décidé, de façon non-coordonnée, d’appliquer une mesure de quatorzaine aux voyageurs entrant sur leur territoire depuis des pays européens, une quatorzaine volontaire sera demandée, par réciprocité. Ainsi les voyageurs arrivant, par voie aérienne uniquement, depuis l’Espagne, seront invités, à compter du lundi 25 mai, à effectuer une quarantaine volontaire, car l’Espagne a mis en place le 15 mai un système de quarantaine pour les voyageurs arrivant en Espagne par avion. Cela vaut pour les voyageurs espagnols, français et de toute nationalité.

A press release of June 12 by the French ministry of Foreign Affairs: no border restrictions for the Schengen citizens as from June 15.

The Britons are also welcome, but are kindly invited to observe a quarantaine of 14 days, quote from the press release:

" Le Royaume-Uni a choisi de mettre en place le 8 juin une obligation de quatorzaine pour les voyageurs en provenance de France. Ainsi, à compter du 15 juin, les voyageurs en provenance du Royaume-Uni ne feront plus l’objet de restrictions d’entrée sur le territoire national liées à la lutte contre le COVID-19 mais resteront, jusqu’à nouvel ordre, invités à observer une quatorzaine à leur arrivée. "

Good news for the owners of a maison secondaire here in France, for UK tourists with other destinations it will be not easy to go in a quatorzaine.

Just to inform the USA members - good morning California - of this forum something about the next steps after July 1, opening the external borders of the countries of the European Union.

Freedom of movement in the Schengen area, and the special case of the Scandinavian countries, is one thing. Once you are in, you are as free as a bird. Opening the external borders is very complicated, you cannot build a fortress Europe, a huge Atlantic Wall around it and barbed wire and MG posts around the airports and ferry ports. The UK somewhere in the middle between these two positions. So a real casse-tête for the European Commission and president Macron. All together or individual countries opening this new sanitary iron curtain with consequences for all the others? The only thing the European Commission can do in these matters is some form of coordination, it's up to the individual member states to decide.
