France prohibits families from entering public places, kids exempted

 Thursday, September 9, 2021 



Families travelling to France this autumn or Christmas may face prohibition from entering restaurants, cafes and even Disneyland Paris if travelling with kids.

The current rules in France exempt kids from needing a vaccine pass to visit attractions

However, this is ending on September 30.

From next month, all kids over 12 will need to have vaccination proof to be able to go to a number of attractions and restaurants.

A majority of cafes, restaurants, cinemas, museums and tourist attractions including Disneyland Paris need as well as some trains and airlines need submission of vaccination proof.

Some hotels and campsites require them to use communal areas such as restaurants and swimming pools.

France has already started vaccinating kids over the age of 12, although the UK is yet to roll this out.

This means families of four on a two-week break face costs up to €400 if they need to test both kids throughout the holiday.

Kids under the age of 12 are still exempt from submitting proof of the vaccine or have a negative Covid test.

Health passports are currently only in place in France until November 15.

The government could extend it to the Christmas period depending on the Covid situation.

The UK is yet to roll out vaccines for kids, although there are plans for parents of 12 to 15-year-old children to get an official letter.

It comes after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation refused to give the green light to inoculating the age group.
