UK expats in France hit with £25 registration fee for hosting friends or family

It costs €30 (£25.70) and must be sent to the local town hall in advance of the visit. The news was met with dismay by many – saying it could end any hopes of a weekend jaunt to see expats in France.

Dr Sally Osborn tweeted: “No more spontaneous weekend visits.”

Since the Brexit transition period ended in January, UK expats living in France became subject to the rules – despite having no issue hosting friends and family for decades under existing EU rules.

This is because, under the Withdrawal Agreement, UK nationals are now counted as estrangers (foreigners) in the eyes of French authorities.

This means that UK nationals can visit France without a visa for 90 days but must show proof of accommodation, insurance and that they have adequate funds to finance their trips.

Officials will provide a certificate that must be sent to the traveller so that they can show it on demand on arrival in France.

A spokesman for the Interior Ministry told The Local: “British tourists, who are now third-country nationals, are subject to compliance with the conditions for entry into the Schengen area under Article 6 of the CFS.

“Since January 1st 2021, they must have proof of sufficient means of subsistence both for the duration of their intended stay and for their return to the UK.

“To enter France, British tourists must therefore present

– an attestation d’acceuil issued by the town hall (if they are staying in private accommodation) or a hotel reservation (which can be replaced by a sum of €120 per person per day)

– proof of means of subsistence (65 euros per day in the case of hotel accommodation or 32.50 euros in the case of an accommodation certificate)

– a certificate of insurance for repatriation on medical grounds.”

The Foreign Office explains in its France travel advice that when arriving at French border control you should be prepared to “show proof of your accommodation, for example, a hotel booking confirmation, proof of address if visiting your own property (e.g. second home), or an invitation from your host if staying with a third party, friends or family.

It adds: “As detailed by the French Ministry of Interior here, you may be requested to provide an “attestation d’accueil”.

French residents will need to acquire the “attestation d’accueil” and pass it on to you before you enter France.”

E3 2021 Fan Registration Opens On 3rd June

E3 2021 App Portal

More news on E3 2021 has arrived, as the ESA announces that fan registration for the event will open up on 3rd June.

As has been explained previously, this year’s E3 will be an all-digital experience running from Saturday 12th to Tuesday 15th June. It seems that a good chunk of the experience will be held via a special E3 online portal and app, and it’s for this reason that fans will want to register and get involved.

Registering for the app will allow you to “virtually” attend E3 itself, with virtual ‘booths’, hosted events, profile and avatar customisation, online forums, and more all being available for those who do. You’ll be able to register here from the 3rd; at present, registration is only open to media.

To keep track of all things E3 2021, make sure to bookmark our ever-evolving guide. Naturally, we’ll be covering all the biggest news and stories from the event right here on Nintendo Life, too, so feel free to join us throughout E3 weekend.
