Sanitary measures for events in France From march 14th :
Since March 14, the "vaccination pass" has been suspended until further notice in all places where it was required (leisure and cultural places, commercial catering activities, fairs and trade shows, etc.). In addition, wearing a mask is no longer mandatory.
Visiting France from a foreign country :
Since February 12, 2022, the following rules apply at borders:
- For travelers vaccinated within the meaning of European regulations, no further tests will be required on departure. Proof of a complete vaccination schedule becomes sufficient to arrive in France, regardless of the country of origin, as was the case before the distribution of the Omicron variant.
- For unvaccinated travellers, the obligation to present a negative test to travel to France remains, but the measures on arrival (test, isolation) are lifted when they come from countries on the "green" list, characterized by moderate circulation of the virus. When unvaccinated travelers come from a country on the "orange" list, they must continue to present a compelling reason justifying the need for them to come to mainland France and may still be subjected to a random test on arrival. Travelers who test positive will have to isolate themselves, in accordance with the recommendations of the Health Insurance.

In the event of an emergency characterized by the appearance of a variant likely to present a risk of increased transmissibility or immune escape, the "emergency brake" mechanism will be activated and the country will then be placed on the "red" list. , implying, as is the case today, the obligation to present a compelling reason for travelling, the obligation to present a negative test on departure - including for vaccinated travelers in the event of a variant presenting the characteristic of an escape immune-, and the obligation to undergo a test on arrival conditioning the placement in quarantine decided by the prefects and controlled by the police.
Such classification will be temporary and reviewed regularly to ensure the proportionality of the travel restriction measures. Currently, no country is classified in the “red” list.
These new border rules may be adapted in view of the evolution of the health situation, and in line with the work currently being carried out with our European partners.
