“Our goal is for these tourists, who have been on national soil since August 9, to receive the same pass as French nationals living outside France,” Jean-Baptiste Lemoine, tourism manager at France Inter Radio, announced.
“We are setting up a unique scalable system to meet these demands,” he said without providing further details.
Since Monday, the government has set up a system for French foreigners living outside the European Union to obtain a special health pass with “vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency” to be vaccinated abroad.
Faced with the Covit-19 epidemic that has killed more than 112,000 people in France, the Health Pass (the latest negative Covit test, vaccination certificate or recovery certificate) went into effect on July 21 at “rest and cultural venues”. Adds more than 50 people. It is to be extended to cafes, restaurants, major trains and domestic flights on Mondays and to those coming to emergency patients and health institutions and rest homes. It was seized by left-wing delegates, subject to a decision expected Thursday in the Constituent Assembly.
In addition, Jean-Baptiste Lemoine wanted to reassure foreign students by announcing that “the policy of welcoming international students enrolled in institutions has been confirmed.”
“We will announce the procedures in the coming days and allow them to come,” he added.
