Below you can read more about the current situation with Corona in France, the travel advice and the associated Corona measures.
Currently, the travel advice for France is color coded yellow and a holiday here is therefore simply possible. However, there are a number of measures in force and you have to take certain rules into account.
What you need to enter France:
Just like in Austria, it is almost everywhere mandatory to show your Corona status in France. The so-called ‘pass sanitaire’ (health pass) shows whether you have been vaccinated, tested or cured.
You must have been fully vaccinated for at least 7 days with an EMA approved vaccine (Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna or AstraZeneca) or for at least 28 days with the Janssen vaccine.
You must be able to show a PCR or antigen test that is not older than 48 hours. For Dutch nationals who enter France from the Netherlands, the test may be a maximum of 24 hours old. Testing in France is not free for tourists. A PCR test is €49,- and an antigen test is €29,-.
You have a medical certificate that you have been cured of a COVID-19 infection in the past 6 months. This statement is a minimum of 11 days and a maximum of 6 months old.
General Corona rules in France:
- Face masks: are mandatory in closed public areas, such as shops and public transport. In places where the health pass is in force, you do not have to wear a mouth cap.
- Catering is open. The health pass is in force, so a mouth cap is not mandatory. There is a maximum of 10 people per table.
- Wearing a face mask is mandatory for everyone from 11 years old, both in the queues for the lifts and in the ski lifts themselves.
Traveling from France back to the Netherlands:
Stricter rules apply to Dutch nationals traveling back from a yellow country. You must be in possession of a Corona proof that shows your Corona status (vaccinated, tested or cured). This rule applies to everyone from the age of 12.
