Re: Commuting between UK and Switzerland

View Post
I have worked out that for my round trip to the UK, I will have to complete at least 8 forms:
  • 2 x Attestation sur l'honneur absence de symptômes Covid (one in each direction through France)
  • International travel declaration to leave France towards the UK
  • UK Passenger Locator Form
  • UK declaration for international travel (the new one mentioned by Spaceghost)
  • International travel declaration to get back into France from the UK (this is a French document, not the same as Spaceghost's one)
  • Attestation de déplacement dérogatoire in case I miss the French curfew deadline on the way back from Calais to Switzerland
  • Entry form to get back into Switzerland

It's form heaven ;-)
Plus you need to carry proof of your residence in Switzerland and the negative Covid test to enter the U.K., your 2 and 8 day covid tests whilst there (and the 5th day test to release if you deem this necessary) and the negative PCR covid test to return. I am in the process of booking all this, not the test to release as I don’t see the point for me, at a combined cost of around £380 and then there is the tunnel costs on top. I have frequent traveller tickets and am still being quoted over £400 for my trip, funeral.

It is what it is and when you have no choice but to travel you just pay up but it puts a bitter taste in the mouth when you feel people are profiting from others misfortune.

My thoughts are with you.
