The Health Pass is mandatory for people over 18 until 30th September 2021 (Decree art.47-1, II) and for children over 12 from 30th September (Law  2021-1041, article 1).

You must be able to present one of the following 3 documents:

  • Either a negative virological test result (negative RT-PCR or antigen test enabling the detection of the SARS-cov-2 N protein) done less than 72 hours before the performance (inflexible time-limit between test time and check time);

  • Or a covid contamination recovery certificate (including a negative RT-PCR test result done at least 11 days but no more than 6 months before the performance).

More information:

The full vaccination certificate must:
  • refer to a vaccine recognised in France ( ).
    Vaccines recognised on the territory and within the application of the Health Pass are those that have been approved of by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Foreign vaccination certificates are only valid if the vaccines are recognised by France and the EMA.
  • include the recommended number of doses and the time-limit set for the vaccine’s effectiveness:
    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).

On the territory, anyone, whether French or foreign, can be tested and retrieve negative test evidence of less than 72h.

Scanning the QR Code on your application or document will only give access to your ID and date of birth, without any other personal detail.
