The rules for travelling to France, Spain, Italy and Croatia
The situation with the Covid-19 public health crisis is prone to change at any time, and specific entry requirements may apply to international travellers.
The entry requirements for travelling to France will differ depending on the country you're travelling from and your vaccination status.
Certain documents are now required to travel to most countries, even if returning to your country of origin. You will need to satisfy certain mandatory conditions prior to travelling and be able to present supporting documents (in digital or paper form) on entry to the country you're travelling to.
A travel pass in the form of an EU certificate, introduced on 1st July, is now recognised for internal travel within the EU.
This certificate requires either a proof of vaccination, a negative test result or a proof of having recovered from Covid within the prior six months.
In France, on 24 January 2022, the government had made the vaccination pass compulsory for any entry into a campsite.
⚠️However, following the announcement of 4 March 2022, this vaccination pass is no longer compulsory since 14/03/2022: it will therefore no longer be required to present a vaccination pass at the entrance of establishments open to the public and therefore campsites.
Only the health pass is required in public transport (train, plane, bus...).
Individual member states may also apply additional health protection measures on a more local basis.
