The innovation related to the health pass will come into effect from December 15.

Study time: 3 minutes

AHere are the FPS State Department’s notes on the trip to France when the fourth wave hits Europe and the Omigran variant spreads.

From December 4, 2021, any person entering French territory must provide a PCR or antigen test of less than 24 hours or less than 48 hours, depending on the country of origin. But do not panic, there are exceptions and the Belgians are worried.

Exceptions

Those with a complete immunization schedule do not need to be tested when coming from EU member states, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, the Holy See or Switzerland.

For travelers from the green country (eg European region including Belgium):

If the traveler has been vaccinated: Certificate of vaccination and a Affidavit Absence of symptoms of govt infection and contact with confirmed govt patient.

If the traveler (12 or older) has not been vaccinated: 72 hours prior to departure a PCR test or a negative antigen test and a report confirming the absence of symptoms of Govt infection and a confirmed Govt patient should be contacted. Exceptions: Travelers coming from a country in the European Union (EU Member State, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Saint – Headquarters or Switzerland) require a PCR or antigen test of less than 24 hours.

This measure does not apply to carriers within the framework of their professional activities, urgent or frequent professional trips that do not comply with these tests, or less than 24-hour trips by border residents (living within 30 km of the border).

Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the test.

Health Boss

From July 1, 2021, the Health Pass will be approved for travel within European territory. In the case of France, proof of complete vaccination cycle, including post-injection time or evidence of PCR test or less than 72 hours of negative antigen test (24 hours per passenger from Belgium) must be confirmed. Dating lasting at least 15 days and less than 6 months is also accepted as evidence of a positive PCR test certifying recovery from the corona virus.

From December 15, 2021, the Health Pass for those over 65 will no longer be valid in France unless they are reminded within seven months of the last injection or last infection. From January 15, 2022, this rule will be extended to anyone over 18 years of age.
