France is getting rid of its vaccine passport.

On March 14, France will partially abolish the requirement for COVID vaccination in passports.

If you're ready to cross the Atlantic again, France is going to make your journey much easier.

Starting next week (March 14), France will no longer require vaccinations to access indoor facilities, removing the necessity for visitors to get a Health Pass prior to arrival.

Face masks will likewise be unnecessary indoors, with the exception of public transportation.

Americans who have had their Covid vaccine up to date—including a booster if it's been more than 9 months—can now travel to France without a test or health pass. Unvaccinated Americans will need to present a "compelling reason" for entering France, as well as a negative Covid test because the US is still on France's orange list.

The requirement to wear a face mask in public indoor venues will be removed as of March 14. Only public transportation will be exempt from the obligation.

SchengenVisaInfo.com announced earlier today that France had added nearly 30 global countries to its green list, allowing travellers from those countries to enter French territory without restriction, including those who are not immune to COVID-19 and are travelling for tourism purposes.

While the action is significant for France, which has maintained among of the harshest travel restrictions since the outbreak, other EU and Schengen Area nations have already removed all COVID-related travel restrictions.

For example, on February 25, Iceland abolished all border restrictions, while Italy and Denmark reduced them on March 2. On March 3, Germany also removed all nations off the list of high-risk areas, removing restrictions for all travellers from those countries, regardless of vaccination status.
