In today’s complex international health context,
MUSEUM CONNECTIONS confirms its intention to hold a physical event.
CURRENT HEALTH MEASURES
Since February 28, the mask is no longer compulsory in closed places subject to the “vaccination pass”. The wearing of the mask indoors remains in transport and closed places not subject to the vaccination pass. As a reminder, since February 2, wearing a mask outdoors is no longer mandatory.
From March 14, the application of the “vaccination pass” will be suspended in all places where it was required (leisure and cultural places, commercial catering activities, fairs and trade shows, etc.).
TRAVEL TO MAINLAND FRANCE
For foreign visitors wishing to visit France, the French Ministry of the Interior website provides regularly updated information on the latest health measures and required documents:
HOW THE VACCINE PASS WORKS
- Vaccination certificate (full course of vaccination, including the booster within the given timeframe for people aged over 18 and one month for those eligible);
- A certificate of recovery from Covid over 11 days and less than 4 months old
- A certificate of contraindication for the vaccination.
Checks on the vaccine pass may be completed by an identity check.
HOW TO GET A VACCINE EQUIVALENCY PASS
If you have been vaccinated in a member state of the European Union, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, the United Kingdom (England and Wales) or Switzerland, your country of vaccination can supply you with a digital EU COVID certificate valid in France or, for the United Kingdom, a digital format is also accepted. You do not therefore need to convert your pass.
For visitors from other countries – outside the European Union:
- Make a request at a pharmacy
Since 26 October 2021, foreign visitors can apply for a certificate of vaccine equivalence directly in a pharmacy.
Pharmacies offering this service are listed on: https://www.sante.fr/how-to-obtain-a-french-health-pass
The vaccine equivalence certificate generation service may be billed for a price not exceeding €36 – including tax.
- Make a request at a laboratory
To enable groups and individual travellers with non-European vaccines to obtain a French health pass with a QR Code remotely, the Tourist Office has teamed up with two laboratories. The latter undertake to do the conversion within 24 to 72 hours after all the requested documents have been submitted.
- Aceso: €35 per French pass converted with QR Code
Contact Guillaume Dapoigny on the behalf of the Paris Tourist Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Loxamed: €55 per French pass converted with QR Code
Send the request to email@example.com
Documents to be produced in both cases:
- A passport;
- The original vaccination certificate in paper format.
These mandatory documents must clearly show the person’s last name, first name, date of birth as well as the date of vaccination, the vaccine used, the number of doses injected and the country of vaccination.
We look forward to seeing you in Paris,
on March 30-31, 2022!
