Current Covid Regulations in France
To access restaurants, bars and hotels in France and also ski lifts you must show your “Pass Vaccinal”. 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 download the TousAntiCovid app here for iPhones and here for androids. Download it and then upload into the health pass bit your vaccine certs using the QR code from your NHS certificates. You need to do all of them and when you’ve done them you’ll get confetti to show you’ve done it right! That’s it, it’s stored on your phone ready to show when needed.
We will need to check your pass vaccinal 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.
Everyone over the age of 16 will need to be fully vaccinated to be able to access accommodation, restaurants, bars and ski lifts.
For those aged between 12-15 who are not double vaccinated will need to have a pass sanitaire to be able to access accommodation, restaurants, bars and ski lifts. To get this you must take a daily lateral flow test. You can walk in to any of the local pharmacies to get these done and the Mairie is also putting on extra capacity. These do need to be official tests with a QR code. They cost 25€/go and results/certificates are emailed to you within a few hours. It's very straightforward. Please do speak to us if you would like us to help with this.
From 15th Jan everyone over 18 years old whose second vaccination is more than seven months old will need to have had the booster vaccine and show this on their "Pass Vaccinal". If you are over 65 years old a booster is mandatory.
From 15th Feb the gap between booster and second vaccine will be shortened to four months so you will need to have had the booster to get the "Pass Vaccinal" within four months of your second vaccine.
In the UK you can have your booster three months after your second vaccine so there is time to get this done before your trip.
