It is time to speak about the end lof lockdown in France. The government's plan's first step, on May 3, 2021, will be the end of the 10km rule and the derogatory trip certificate. Therefore, it will be once again possible to travel between regions.

As the coronavirus epidemic is slowing down in France, the French are seeing restrictions eased off. The third and hybrid lockdown is progressively lifted starting from May 3, 2021 following a four-step plan put up together by the government. Therefore, past this date, the famous 10km rule will no longer be valid and the French will be able to ditch the derogatory trip certificate again.

How is the government’s lockdown exit plan? While we are waiting for Emmanuel Macron’s statements expected in the regional press, here is what seems to be planned according to information revealed this Thursday April 29, 2021.

And what about trips between regions? So far, the French were only allowed to leave their regions for derogatory grounds. Therefore, they could not go on weekends. But this rule is also to end from this Monday May 3, 2021. Therefore, they can once again move as they wish between regions, without having to prove the necessity of their trips. Furthermore, as May 2021 public holidays are coming up - namely Pentecost and Ascension - the SNCF confirms the service will be almost normal.
