(Updated on 28 December 2021)

Restrictions in force

The health pass

Since 21 July, the health pass is compulsory for access to leisure and cultural venues gathering 50 people or more. Anyone aged 18 and over must present proof of full vaccination, a negative RT-PCR test less than 48 hours old or proof of recovery from Covid-19 infection to gain access to these leisure and cultural venues. From the beginning of August, and if passed into law, the health pass will apply in cafés, restaurants, shopping centres, as well as in hospitals, retirement homes and medical and social establishments.

Long-distance travel by plane, train and bus is also covered. Access to tourist accommodation will not be subject to the health pass, except for their restaurant and social areas.

This obligation will apply to 12-17 year olds from 30 September.

Please note: the bill adopted by Parliament provides for the application of the health pass for air and sea travel from Corsica to the mainland. The government has announced the implementation of this measure from 9 August. It is therefore advisable for all travellers leaving Corsica to take precautions now to present a valid health pass.

The health pass is validated by one of the following conditions:

To recover your health pass, it all depends on the health proof chosen:

European passengers travelling to Corsica

Because the circulation of the COVID-19 virus and its variants remains active (the figures of the pandemic can be consulted on the website of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control), any entry into France and any exit from our territory is regulated.
Since 9 June 2021, as part of the strategy to reopen French borders and the decree of 7 June 2021, a classification of countries/territories has been defined and regularly updated by the government according to the health situation.

To date, the classification is as follows:

Important note: This classification based on health indicators is distinct from the security risk colours on the travel advice maps for each destination.

Travel arrangements to and from France depend on this classification and on the traveller's vaccination. 

1/ travellers from a country/territory classified as "green": the European Union, Albania, Australia, Bahrain, Bosnia, Brunei, Canada, Comoros, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kosovo, Lebanon, North Macedonia, Montenegro, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Ukraine, United States and Vanuatu

Travellers aged twelve or over from these countries/territories are not subject to the compelling reasons regime and are required to present:

A strengthened regime is then put in place for the UK, with an initial test requirement (PCR or antigenic) of less than 24 hours for non-vaccinated persons.

Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, the Netherlands, Greece and Malta are placed under surveillance within the European area, with a test requirement of less than 24 hours for non-vaccinated persons entering France from these countries.

This obligation does not apply to travel by road transport professionals in the exercise of their activity and to the following journeys by land:

2/ Travellers from a country/territory classified as "red": Afghanistan, Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Maldives, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Russia, Seychelles, South Africa, Suriname, and Tunisia.

Unvaccinated travellers from these countries/territories:

3/ Travellers from countries/territories classified as "orange": all countries/territories other than those mentioned in paragraph 1 ("green") or 2 ("red")

Unvaccinated travellers from these countries/territories must present a negative PCR test result less than 72 hours or a negative antigen test (TAG) less than 48 hours before the flight at the time of boarding. They may be subject to a random antigen test on arrival.
In addition :

If you have any questions about the application of the measures concerning entry and residence in France, you can contact the freephone number: 0800 130 000.

It is also recommended to consult the government's information page.

For passengers traveling to Sardinia

Passengers arriving in Italy must register on the government platform for entry into Italy which replaces the self-declaration made to the carrier.

In addition, they must be in possession of the "green certificate" of vaccination against Covid-19, which is issued 14 days after the completion of the vaccination cycle or against a certificate of immunity or following a negative molecular or antigenic test carried out within 48 hours prior to entering Italy.

Children under 6 years of age are exempt from the pre-departure test.

We remind you that the certificate of completion of the vaccination cycle must be for one of the four vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency: Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca.

In any case, we advise you to consult the Italian government's FAQ on the planned measures.
