Current Covid Regulations in France
To access restaurants, bars and hotels in France (but not ski lifts) you must show your “Pass Sanitaire”. The easiest way to do this if you are double vaccinated is to download the app called TousAntiCovid (not TousAntiCovid Verif which is something else). You can scan in the bar code from your vaccination certificates that you’ll have on your NHS app and that’s it, it’s stored on your phone ready to show when needed. If you are not double vaccinated then you can also show a PCR/lateral flow antigen test certificate taken within 72 hours. Or a certificate showing that you’ve had Covid that is less than six months old.
We will need to check your pass sanitaire or relevant certificates when you check in to our catered accommodation. However, to travel from the UK to France, you will already have shown these certificates so you will have them to hand. There’s a good summary here.
These rules include anyone over the age of 12 years old. This does create a problem for anyone between the ages of 12-17 who at the moment can't be double vaccinated in the UK. However, to travel to France you do already need to have had a PCR within 72 hours or a lateral flow test within 48 hours anyway so this will cover you for checking in to our accommodation, see above. You will need to have a further test during your stay if you want to visit any other bars or restaurants.
The local pharmacies in Megeve offer a walk in service for PCR/lateral flow tests for around 30€ with results/certificates emailed to you within a few hours. It’s very straightforward.
NB We are not experts but will endeavour to keep this up to date and accurate. It is your responsibility to check all rules and regulations regarding travelling and staying in France before making a booking.
