DFDS statement on restrictions for travel to France

Due to restrictions from the French government, passengers will not be allowed to sail into France from midnight on 20 December, and for at least 48 hours.

The last departure for passengers on 20 December from Dover to Calais is at 21.35; from Dover to Dunkirk is at 22.45; and from Newhaven to Dieppe is at 23.00.

Services will continue inbound to the UK over the next 48 hours to enable freight and UK nationals and residents to get home.

If you have a booking from Dover or Newhaven within this 48-hour period, it will be cancelled and a travel credit issued. Please do not come to the ports of Dover or Newhaven during this time as you will not be allowed to travel.

We will update with any further information as soon as we have it.
