Covid-19 restrictions in France

From July 21st, 2021

The Health Pass (vaccination certificate OR recovery certificate OR PCR / Antigen negative test result) will be necessary to access places of leisure and culture where there are more than 50 people.

From August 1st, 2021

The Health Pass (vaccination certificate OR recovery certificate OR PCR / Antigen negative test result) will be necessary to enter cafeterias, bars, restaurants, retirement homes, hospitals as well as to travel by plane (including domestic flights), in long-distance buses and trains.

From Autumn 2021

The PCR tests for beneficiaries of the French healthcare system will be charged, unless they are by medical prescription.

PCR tests are already charged for tourists not protected by the national healthcare system.

Specific case: Youth

The obligation of the Health Pass for young people between 12 and 17 years old has been postponed to August 30th, 2021.

 

The reason is that since vaccination was only opened for this age group in June, millions of young people would have been forced to take repeated tests for all their summer activities, starting on July 21.

 

This arrangement will allow youth to be vaccinated before August 30.
