Information about vaccination

Foreign vaccination certificate


The Ministry of Solidarity and Health (MSS) confirms that the new conditions of validity of the health pass for people over 65 (linked to the 3rd dose) also apply to foreigners over 65. This point is valid for access to activities subject to the pass on national territory, but not in the case of the border pass.

In the event that a booster dose cannot be obtained, foreigners will be able to be tested and obtain a negative test certificate (for a fee).

This information comes from the Social Affairs Advisor at the Embassy who informed the Deputy Consul General in New York.
