France Unveils Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate for Non-EU Tourists

Read Time:55 Seconds

August 11. France’s Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs on Aug. 9 implemented a dedicated system to enable non-EU tourists who have been vaccinated with vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or their equivalent to obtain a COVID certificate that is valid in France. The approved vaccines are Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson (Jansen).

For the time being, the system is only open to non-EU tourists who are already in France or who will arrive in France before August 15. Requests concerning arrivals after August 15 will be processed at a later date.

For all details on conditions for the COVID certificate and how to apply—including the dedicated email address for American citizens and residents (French U.S. residents have a separate application procedure) and the downloadable application form, click on COVID Certificate.

Since July 21, the French “Pass Sanitaire” has been required for entrance into museums, movie theaters and other sites and attractions in France and since Aug. 9 to access restaurants, cafes, trains, domestic flights and most other indoor venues.
