Requirements for travel to France in 2022 and health passport
Europe revises this Tuesday the travel restrictions to adapt them to the health status of the traveler and not to that of the region from which he travels. Thus, a citizen with the full guideline or a recovery certificate will be able to travel within the EU without additional restrictions. The aim is to simplify the rules of mobility on the continent, however, a dozen countries already fail to comply with these recommendations and ask for additional tests to cross their borders.
Specifically, the vaccination document will be valid for nine months unless the person receives a booster dose, in which case it will be extended indefinitely. The validity of the recovery certificate, on the other hand, will be 180 days. As for diagnostic tests, the PCR will be accepted with a maximum period of 72 hours prior to travel, while that of the antigen test will be reduced from 48 to 24 hours.
The EU Ministers of General Affairs have given their approval to the changes that will come into force as of February 1, although they are recommendations and not binding rules, since border control is the responsibility of each individual state. In fact, at least ten countries require a negative test for those vaccinated, including France, Italy, Portugal, Germany and the Netherlands.
New REQUIREMENTS for traveling to FRANCE ⚠️ NEW
On March 14, 2022, the presentation of the vaccination passport in those places where it was required (leisure and cultural centers, commercial catering, trade fairs and professional shows, etc.) ceased to be mandatory. Similarly, the health passport ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the health control system has made it possible to preserve our health system and to delay the arrival on French territory of variants with worrying characteristics. This system ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
However, in the event of the emergence of a dangerous variant, the entry into French territory of travelers from countries considered to be at risk could again be subject to the presentation of a negative virological test.
For information on health regulations concerning entry into the territory of other countries, please consult the Travel Advice section of the website of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.

Like Portugal, Greece and Ireland, it now asks for a negative PCR from all travelers, regardless of their vaccination status. And France, which already required the test for all non-EU travelers, has decided to close the passage to tourists from the UK and from this Saturday will only accept travel for imperative reasons, including being French and wanting to return home.
The EU claims to be the largest exporter of vaccines in the world and leader of the Covax mechanismMore than 30% of Europeans remain unvaccinated, recalled the President of the European Commission, who regretted that there are 9 countries with rates below 60% At the bottom of all are Bulgaria and Romania, where only 26.2% and 39% of their respective populations are immunized. “Vaccination and booster doses are the best possible protection” against omicron, Von der Leyen insisted. All in all, the EU recognizes that the pandemic will only end when it is overcome globally and reaffirmed its commitment to global vaccination.
