BRITS planning a holiday to France will face another rule change in regards to travelling when vaccinated.

The country has updated the latest travel restrictions for anyone entering France who is yet to have their booster jabs.

President Macron has announced that anyone who is over 65-years-old must have their third jab by December 15.

If they don't then their vaccine passport – which is required to enter attractions, cafes and bars – will be invalid.

The only other alternative is to have a negative test, if you are yet to have a booster test, which must be taken every three days.

Macron said: "If you have been vaccinated more than six months ago, I encourage you to book an appointment now."

The pass, called the Pass Sanitaire, is one of the strictest Covid rules for tourists, which only recently linked with the UK NHS app which proves vaccination status.

However, it was recently warned that the apps are not able to show proof of the third booster jab.

This means that older travellers may not be able to travel freely through France, even if they have had three jabs.

The app currently shows both the first and second jab and the dates they were taken, but the third booster jab being rolled out for Brits aged 50 and over is not being recorded.

The decision over whether to add the third booster jab to the app records is made by the Department Of Health, who have said the position is under review.

France isn't the only country to introduce restrictions for anything without a booster.

Austria's government has a 360-day limit on how long they will recognise the effectiveness of a vaccine after the date of the second shot.

Israel has an 180-day limit on how long they will recognise the effectiveness of a vaccine after the date of the second shot.

Both countries extend their full time limit to a third booster jab.

Brits have recently been urged to update their NHS apps urgently, or risk being banned from flying.

This is because the European Commission confirmed that the UK NHS COVID pass would finally be accepted as full proof of vaccination in all EU countries – but means anyone who hasn't updated their app before November 1 will need to.
