Those who have tested negative for coronavirus within a specific time frame, or who have recovered from coronavirus and have natural antibodies will also be allowed to travel.

France’s Secretary of State for Digital, Cédric O, told reporters France is the “first country [in the EU] to make this functionality available to its citizens”.
