COVID-19 Status – French ‘Pass Sanitaire’

We are aware that from 1 August, new requirements will take effect in France requiring individuals to demonstrate their COVID-19 status through the French ‘pass sanitaire’. This will be required to use certain forms of transport, such as trains, as well as to access a range of services and venues including leisure facilities such as bars, restaurants, museums, and cinemas.

Fully vaccinated travellers to receive lateral flow tests on arrival

Fully vaccinated travellers into the Bailiwick will be provided with lateral flow tests on arrival from Tuesday 3rd August 2021, provided the necessary testing packs arrive in the anticipated timeframe.

The Civil Contingencies Authority has confirmed that it will introduce lateral flow tests on arrival for adult ‘blue channelers’ – those travelling from within the Common Travel Area who have received two vaccine doses plus 14 days having passed since their second jab. The Authority is also strongly recommending that those who are not local residents arrange to take a pre-travel test (either PCR or lateral flow).
