French Vaccine Pass Ends

French Vaccine Pass Ends

From 14 March, the vaccine pass will no longer be required to visit bars or cafés in France. 

The vaccine pass will be coming to an end in almost all venues, together with a major relaxation of the mask rules.

The vaccine pass requirement will be lifted in bars, cafés, restaurants, ski lifts, tourist sites, gyms, leisure centres, sports stadiums, cinemas, theatres, nightclubs, concerts, large events, and long-distance trains 

Only nursing homes, hospitals, and medical centres will retain the use of the pass and this will again be the health pass which means that unvaccinated people can use a negative Covid test. E

Emergency medical care has always been provided with no pass required.

The pass is technically ‘suspended’ rather than scrapped, so it could return if cases spike again.

Covid Rules Within France

The mask rule will be scrapped for many venues, but there are some exceptions.

Masks are still required on all public transport and in all stations, airports, and transport interchanges. Failure to wear a mask covering your mouth and nose on public transport can net you a €135 fine.

Masks will also be required for patients and visitors in all medical establishments including hospitals and nursing homes.

Private businesses are legally entitled to impose their own conditions of entry, which can include a mask requirement, and local authorities also have the power to impose mask rules if cases spike.

As for travel, nothing changes and unvaccinated travellers from Orange list countries are still barred for non-essential travel.
