The health pass (or pass sanitaire, in French) is a digital or paper proof of health, which attests to the complete vaccination of the citizen against Covid-19. It is also used to prove a negative PCR test performed less than 72 hours ago, or an antigen test performed less than 48 hours ago, or a positive PCR test or antigen test that attests to the recovery from Covid-19 dating from at least 11 days and less. of 6 months.

This document is mandatory in France for people over 12 years and 2 months of age, citizens or tourists, and is required for entry to bars, shopping malls, cafes and restaurants, as well as museums, cinemas and public transport.

On the health pass, important information about the citizen is placed, such as full name, date of birth, date of vaccination, vaccine used, if possible the batch number, the number of doses injected and the country of vaccination. In the case of the digital version, there is also a QR Code used to release entry to the locations.

And, in addition to its validity within French territory, the health pass is also recognized by all European Union countries and by countries that have established a mutual recognition agreement with the European Union. Therefore, it is important both for those traveling to France and for those who want to discover other places in Europe from this country.

Before, this conversion could be done exclusively by the application "TousAntiCovid“, but, due to several problems, it also started to be done in person in pharmacies.

The health pass is issued upon presentation of the ConectSUS vaccination certificate printed in English and the traveler's passport within the validity period. For the conversion, a fee of 30 euros is charged by the French government (about R$ 191), but with taxes, the total cost of the health pass is 36 euros (about R$ 229).

Who can have the French sanitary pass

France allows Brazilians to enter its territory as long as they are fully vaccinated with one of the immunizers authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA): Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Janssen.

Vaccinated travelers are not required to comply with quarantine upon arrival in France. The European country considers the complete immunization cycle as follows: 28 days after administration of the single dose of Janssen or 7 days after application of the second dose of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca.

Proof of vaccination is based on the presentation of the certificate issued by ConectSUS in English. This document guarantees entry into the country, but is not valid for entry into closed places, for which you must convert to a sanitary pass.

Brazilians immunized with Coronavac, however, can only enter France after completing the immunization cycle and 7 days after taking a complementary dose of a messenger RNA immunizer, currently manufactured only by Pfizer and Moderna laboratories.

And who hasn't had any vaccines?

According to the rules of entry into France, unvaccinated travelers must prove the “reason of force majeure” for their entry into the country and present a PCR test, or antigen test, with a negative result, and carried out less than 48 hours before departure. .

In addition, they are required to comply with a 10-day quarantine, accompanied by time restrictions for leaving the place of isolation and supervised by the police. The French government has listed the possible reasons of force majeure for the entry of unvaccinated travelers. They can be seen on the website French Ministry of the Interior.
