France travel restrictions for Americans to be relaxed in early May – Deadline

Speaking to CBS News’ Face the nation French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday that travel restrictions for vaccinated Americans wishing to come to France would be “gradually” lifted from early May. This should be good news for industry professionals hoping to attend the Cannes Film Festival, currently scheduled for July 6-17. Cannes just announced its opening night film this morning, a further indication that organizers are hoping the event will go ahead as planned.

Macron Told Face the nationMargaret Brennan that the summer season will be organized with “our professionals in France for the French and European citizens, but also for the American citizens”, and added that he wanted to offer “the best possible summer with the possibility for your citizens to come to our country because it is something we are very proud of. ”

He added, “We are working hard to come up with a very concrete solution, especially for US citizens vaccinated” and “with a special pass.”

Discussions are underway with the US authorities on how this would unfold. Macron explained: “We are building a European certificate to facilitate travel after these restrictions between different European countries with testing and vaccination. And the idea is indeed to offer that to the American citizen.

The death toll from Covid in France recently reached 100K and we are currently in a third national lockout, albeit with somewhat less stringent restrictions than the first severe lockout in March 2020. People in France are currently not allowed to travel only within 10 kilometers of their home, while non-essential businesses are closed and a 7 p.m. curfew is in effect nationwide.

In a meeting with various French mayors at the end of last week, Macron reportedly said restaurant and museum terraces could be given the green light to reopen around May 15 or 20. “Some” cultural venues with a schedule that could start in mid-May, although he didn’t say if that would include movie theaters. Cinemas in France have been closed since the end of October 2020.

Macron is now expected to provide a plan to reopen in the next week, which will then be discussed with the government. The current view is that if eating out resumes in mid-May, further easing of restrictions will be taken in three-week increments.
