The end of the state of health emergency in France is accompanied by the end of the health pass from August 1, 2022. It is therefore no longer compulsory in the hospital. What about traveling abroad? What validity?
[Updated August 19, 2022 at 6:22 p.m.] The health pass was part of the daily devices of the French. It was entered into force in France on August 9, 2021 in the midst of a pandemic Covid-19 . A year later, the August 1, 2022 , the end of the state of health emergency in France is accompanied by the end of this famous health pass in France. Theoretically, the health pass is not replaced by any device. But in fact, a slightly similar device was described in the text voted by parliamentarians: travel health certificate . As the name suggests, it is all about travel.
The sanitary pass is a document (paper or digital) which entered into force in France on August 9, 2021 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. This device is proof:
A medical certificate attesting to a medical contraindication to vaccination can serve as a health pass.
Following the final vote of the Senate, Parliament definitively adopted on July 26 the bill putting an end to the exceptional regimes created to fight against the Covid-19 epidemic. Thus the health pass ends in France as of August 1, 2022 . It can no longer be required in places where it was still in force (health and medico-social services and establishments).
Since August 1, 2022, in accordance with the law ending the exceptional regimes created to combat the Covid-19 epidemic in France, the border health control system is lifted in France . in revenge, foreign states are likely to retain measures and specific formalities for access to their territory. We must therefore continue to check their conditions. For France, the government nevertheless retained the option of a ' travel health certificate' in the form of a screening test up as of March 31, 2023 for people over 12 years old before boarding for French territory:
As of August 1, 2022, the health pass is no longer required in health and medico-social services and establishments for people accompanying or visiting to people accommodated in these services and establishments. The health pass is also not required for hospital and clinic emergencies or for testing. Nor is it required to access medico-social establishments and services for children, or independent residences.
As of August 1, 2022, the health pass is no longer required for people aged 12 and over (accompanying persons, visitors) at the entrance to the retirement homes, EHPADS and establishments for the disabled.
Retrieving a health pass depends on the chosen health proof:
