do you need a health pass for your holiday?

WHAT IS THE HEALTH PASS?

The "health pass" consists of the presentation, digitally (via the TousAntiCovid application) or on paper, of one of the following three health proofs:

  • I have been vaccinated as part of a complete vaccination plan against Covid-19
  • I have proof of a negative test less than 24 hours old
  • I have the result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid-19, dating back at least 11 days and less than 6 months
     

The vaccines recognised in France are:

  • Pfizer / BioNTech
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca / Vaxzevria / Covishield
  • Johnson & Johnson

*Some special cases*

 

The validity of the health pass will change from 15 January 2022: it will now be necessary for anyone aged 18 and over to have received 3 doses of vaccine to have a valid health pass. This booster can be given as early as 3 months after the last dose and must be given within a maximum of 7 months after the last dose.

After 7 months, the vaccination certificate will no longer be valid and the QR Code initially issued will be deactivated and can no longer be used for the health pass.

 

For people over 65, or people vaccinated with the Janssen vaccine, the rules for the health pass change from 15 December: from this date you must have had your booster from the moment you are eligible:

 

For English people aged between 12 and 17, it is possible to obtain a health pass:

Either by having had the Covid + 1 injection (within 6 months)
Or by being tested negative every day

I HAVE A HEALTH PASS ISSUED BY A COUNTRY OTHER THAN FRANCE. TWO POSSIBLE CASES:

CASE NUMBER 1

 

In this case my health pass is valid in France. I can download the QR Code on the TousAntiCovid application or print my vaccination certificate.

 

CASE NUMBER 2

 

In this case, if my health pass was issued by a member state of the European Union or by one of the countries listed below, my health pass is valid in France: 

Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Israel, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Morocco, Monaco, Northern Macedonia, Norway, Panama, San Marino, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom*, Vatican.

 

If I come from one of these countries and if I have a QR Code from outside the EU, I can obtain a "standard" Europe health pass. There are two ways to do this:

 

 

*UNITED KINGDOM

From 14 January 2022, the rules for travel between the UK and France change:

Only unvaccinated people are required to show a compelling reason to travel to France. However, a negative test less than 24 hours old will be required to enter France.

 

All the reasons considered as compelling are indicated in the list available here (in French).

 

 

SPECIAL CASE: CROSSING SWITZERLAND TO GENEVA AIRPORT

GET TESTED IN TIGNES

A covid-19 screening center has been set up in Tignes le Lac (Palafour gallery, Bec Rouge district) in order to test all those who need it (PCR or antigen test). Appointment scheduling is mandatory, primarily online, or by phone on 04 79 40 09 29 (to be limited as far as possible to limit line saturation).


It is possible to make an appointment 1 month in advance for antigenic tests (25 € for foreigners and unvaccinated people without a prescription) and PCR (44 € for foreigners and unvaccinated people without a prescription). Antigenic tests are to be favored as far as possible to avoid clogging the laboratories of the valley.
