Health Pass, Entry Conditions, Findable Paper … Three Things to Thoroughly Check Before Traveling to Europe

Grab your passport, take your sarong on board, and forget about everything in Ibiza (Spain), Patmos (Greece) or Pharaoh (Portugal)? Why, if your heart tells you. But do not forget your masks, the minimum required for travel, or the necessary health precautions when the Govt-19 epidemic starts again under the pressure of delta variation. Finally, while some countries like Malta now restrict access to holiday makers, keep these three things in mind to check before departure.

Check entry requirements for the destination country shortly before you depart

Preliminary Reminder: Any European country plays a primary role in its borders, so the conditions for entering its borders can be changed as it is better suited to protect its population. Malta’s example proves it: Since Wednesday July 14, Visit to this country Vaccination will be mandatory.

It is therefore highly recommended to visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website shortly before departure Travel advice Offered by country wise. Carefully consider the needs of your target country. Because the devil is sometimes hiding in the details. Be careful, the Qui D’Orsay website warns: “Malta considers that a complete vaccination schedule requires two doses of vaccine.” So, in France, those who have received only a single dose because it is already polluted will not be able to go to the Mediterranean island as of Wednesday.

“The EU Digital Govt Certificate states that they have tested positive and that travelers who have been vaccinated with a single dose will not be allowed to enter the country.”

Similarly, the required vaccination schedule will vary from country to country. Many states (especially Italy, Spain and Portugal) claim that 14 days have passed since your second dose of Pfizer-BioEntech, Moderna or AstraZeneca. Others need less. In the Czech Republic, “22 days after the first injection for double injection” People coming from France (14 days for single injection vaccines) are required.

Check that your health pass meets European standards

Step 2: Check your “European Health Pass” (Certification for a negative test orRecovery from Govt-19, Or a complete vaccine with one of the vaccines approved by the European Union) Complies with European standards (photo below).

Because it is “CEU Digital Govt Certification“(His real name) n ‘Only patients who had been vaccinated for the second time after June 24 were given it automatically in the form of a paper document. If you have been vaccinated before, the paper certificate issued to you after the second injection does not meet the standard of the pass approved in Europe.

To make sure you have the right document, you need to get this sesame On the site attestation-vaccin.ameli.fr, Downloads and prints. If you do not, you can integrate it into the TousAntiCovid application by scanning its QR code on your phone. Finally, if you can not download it from the Internet, call Medicare 3646 and it will be sent to you. It is necessary to think about what to expect: it is necessary to wait a few days to get it.

Check if you need a digital discovery sheet

Another obligation imposed by some European countries, such as Greece or Italy: Fill out a “Location Form” online before departure., Still invited “fEuropean digital detectable paper.

This is an approach that, again, is good to look forward to. You will need to register with a password and fill out a three-page questionnaire with specific information (traveler’s name, ID card number, vaccination date, permanent address, vacation address, etc.). You can add people you travel with (this avoids creating a new form).

Please note: for some countries this document must be completed the day before it is up to date. This is especially true in Greece “DAll travelers, regardless of their nationality and origin“, Really Mentioned on the Qi d’Orsay page. In principle, a QR code – one more – will be sent to you to certify the document. But since two precautions are better than one, keep the confirmation written in the email received after completing the form.
