Health & Safety
The COVID-19 situation in France is constantly evolving. This page will be updated as information becomes available. Please utilize all resources provided to obtain the most up to date information.
As of February 12, 2022, fully vaccinated travelers arriving from the United States do not require a COVID test to enter France. French authorities accept the CDC card as evidence of vaccination for entry into France.
Definition of Fully Vaccinated:
French authorities require a traveler age 18 and over to receive a booster dose of an mRNA vaccine if it has been 9 months or more since the second dose (the single dose for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) to be considered fully vaccinated for entry into France. Travelers who received the booster more than 9 months after their second dose may still enter France, so long as one week has passed since they received the booster dose.
Do I need a vaccine pass?
No, as of March 14 a health/ vaccine pass is no longer required to enter venues in France, with the exception of hospitals and nursing homes. This does not affect vaccine requirements regarding travel to France.
How do I obtain a vaccine pass?
A vaccine pass (or a health pass for those age 12-15) can be obtained from designated pharmacies for a fee of up to 36 Euros. The map of designated pharmacies is available on this website:? https://www.sante.fr/how-to-obtain-a-french-health-pass
. Travelers will need to have their passport and their original paper version of their vaccination record. The vaccination record will need to show the traveler’s name, DOB, vaccination date(s), the number of doses and the country where the vaccination occurred.
Completion of a passenger locator form is also required: https://app.euplf.eu/#/ and https://passager.serveureos.org/forms/
