The question of Christelle, of the Yvelines

We would have liked to postpone our trip to holidays next year in July to be able to take full advantage, since there we called Air Caribbean who explained to us that we must respect a fortnight in a hotel.

Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne's answer
"For the moment, all this is very evolving, the overseas territories are insular so in these territories it is important to control the circulation of the virus so that the sanitary facilities are not overwhelmed, that there is no clusters and that's why there's this extra fortnight precaution.
My colleague Annick Girardin, Minister for the Overseas Territories, is working to make this fourteen days more flexible. We are also working on tests that could be done just before departure and a few days after arrival, so I think that by your departure things will evolve.

I do not know if the listener took her trip in dry flight with Air Caribbean or if she took it as a package with the flight, plus accommodation because there the legal regimes are different and she may, be getting a carryover. "
