Changes to Covid pass rules - France and the Netherlands

France and the Netherlands have scrapped the requirement for a COVID pass to enter the majority of venues and events.


Travellers aged 12 and over no longer need to have a pass vaccinal (vaccine pass) or a pass sanitaire (health pass) to visit cafés, bars, restaurants, shopping centres or take part in leisure and cultural activities.

A pass sanitaire (health pass) is still required to access hospitals and clinics, except in the event of a medical emergency.

Please note that passengers will still need to show proof of vaccination to take the Eurostar.

The Netherlands

Travellers no longer need to show a vaccination, recovery or negative test certificate to access cafés, restaurants, sporting events or venues with a capacity of up to 500 people.

For indoor events with a capacity of 500 people or more without assigned seats, everyone aged 13 and over must have a negative test result no older than 24 hours. This also applies to fully vaccinated travellers and those that have had COVID-19 before.

Visitors to the Netherlands can use the CoronaCheck app or the website to upload their negative test result and obtain a venue entry pass.
