Welcome to the French national EURAXESS portal!

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 AND THE SITUATION IN FRANCE

 

You must present a health pass to access leisure and culture venues and events bringing together more than 50 people.

You also need to present a pass in bars, restaurants, malls, hospitals (except if you are admitted for urgent care), retirement homes, residential care homes, and for long-distance travel by plane, train or coach. For campsites, and other holiday accommodation you will need to present a pass once, on arrival.

This list may be extended as necessary.

The health pass is not required for children under 12. It will be

required from 30 September for young people aged 12 to 17, and for the staff of public venues.

The pass must prove one of the three following items:

  • That you are fully vaccinated (with an EMA-approved vaccine or similar):
    • Seven days after the second shot for two-shot vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca);
    • Four weeks after the shot for one-shot vaccines (Johnson & Johnson);
    • Seven days after the shot for vaccines administered to people who have already had COVID-19 (only one dose is necessary).

 

  • OR that you have been tested (PCR or antigen) with a negative result within the last 48hrs;
  • OR that you have recovered from COVID-19, attested by a positive PCR or antigen test result, at least 15 days and no more than 6 months old.

 

Passes can be digital (on the TousAntiCovid app) or in paper form (proof of vaccination or test result). They include a QR code that will be scanned on entry into the venue or event.

The French health pass is interoperable with the EU Digital COVID Certificate scheme for travel within the European Union, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican.
