How to Get a French Health Pass

Instructions for People Vaccinated in the U.S. to receive a French Health Pass:  On August 10, the French government released instructions on how people vaccinated outside the European Union, including people vaccinated in the United States, may obtain a French Health Pass.  Please see the instructions at Applying for a COVID certificate if you were vaccinated abroad (procedure for non-EU tourists).

For questions, please see the information, including Frequently Asked Questions and an email address for assistance, at the Applying for a COVID certificate if you were vaccinated abroad (procedure for non-EU tourists) website.  The U.S. Embassy has no access to the French system, nor can we assist in this process.

A similar procedure is in place for French (including dual French/American) citizens and their dependents (ayant-droit)​ vaccinated outside of the EU.

In the meantime, if you are in France or coming to France imminently and need a health pass, please be advised that rapid antigen tests conducted in France (available on a walk-in basis at local pharmacies) serve as a health pass valid for 72 hours.
