During the February school vacations, many people will be thinking about taking a ski vacation in France.
If you’re traveling from a country other than France, you’ll first need to determine whether or not the border is accessible to you.
In France, there is a traffic light system that regulates transport.
If you are traveling from a green nation, you are free to go wherever for any purpose. Persons who are fully vaccinated need merely show evidence of vaccination at the border, while unvaccinated people need a negative Covid test as well. All of the EU and Schengen zone nations, as well as New Zealand, are considered green.
In order to go for a ski trip (which is considered non-essential in terms of travel, no matter how much you have missed zipping down the slopes), you must be immunized if you are traveling from an orange or red nation. This includes the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the United States. Negative Covid tests are no longer necessary for travelers who have received all of their vaccinations.
The regulations of the resort
Ski lift lineups, ski lifts themselves, and your fall down the slopes are no longer required to wear masks, according to a recent decision by the federal government.
Some local authorities may have their own restrictions in place, so it’s a good idea to check with the administration of your resort.
Resorts will almost certainly increase the amount of space available for queuing in order to maintain social distance measures between individuals waiting to enter the attraction.
Permit for vaccinations – A vaccination pass is necessary in order to access ski lifts as well as many other locations.
Ski resort executives have said that, in general, consumers would be required to produce their pass at the time of purchase of a ski pass for the resort. At the same time, random inspections will be carried out at the lifts and cable cars.
If your children are between the ages of 12 years and two months and 15 years, they will need a health card in order to enter places such as pubs, cafés, and ski lifts, among other things.
While the health pass is not as stringent as it is for the vaccine pass, it still need either confirmation of complete Covid immunization, proof of recent recovery from Covid, or a negative Covid test done within the past 24 hours.
A ‘full vaccination’ in this context refers to two doses of either Pfizer, AstraZeneca, or Moderna, or a single dosage of Johnson & Johnson, as appropriate. A single dosage of Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca is not considered a complete vaccination, and children who have received just one dose will be required to follow the same regulations as unvaccinated individuals. The youngster must have had their second dosage at least seven days prior to receiving the third dose.
