DEMONSTRATING YOUR COVID STATUS ON HOLIDAY

Updated: 7th October 2021

The Irish Government currently approves travel to all Eurocamp destinations. There are, however, conditions in relation to travel under the EU Digital COVID Certificate and your destination country may require you to demonstrate your COVID-19 status to access hospitality venues or public spaces. If you have booked a holiday, or are planning one soon, please follow the link for the country you’re travelling to below for more details.

We’re keeping a close eye on requirements in all countries, but rules can change at any time, so we recommend visiting the DFA website for the latest information on your destination.


FRANCE

“Pass Sanitaire” – demonstrating your COVID status in France

From 30th September, anyone aged 12 and over will need this to access a range of leisure facilities (bars, restaurants, museums, cinemas), hospitals, and modes of transport such as long distance train and bus journeys and planes. You can therefore also expect to have your COVID status checked when you arrive at your parc.

The pass sanitaire can be acquired by fulfilling one of the following three criteria:

1. Vaccination certificate, illustrating that you are fully vaccinated with a vaccine authorised by the European Medical Authority. This means:

- One week after a second dose of Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna.

- 28 days after a single dose of Johnson & Johnson.

2. Negative PCR or antigen test result from the last 48 hours.

3. A document (dated more than 11 days ago and less than six months ago) proving you have recently recovered from COVID.

The French government has confirmed that anyone travelling from Ireland will be able to demonstrate that they are fully vaccinated using the EU Digital COVID Certificate.


ITALY

The COVID-19 Green Certification - demonstrating your COVID status in Italy

From the 6th August, a Green Certificate will be required to access many public spaces in Italy including, but not limited to, indoor seating in bars and restaurants, museums, exhibitions, well-being centres, swimming pools, fairs and large events. It is not required to enter campsites.

The Green Certificate shows proof via a scannable QR code that the holder has either:

1. Been vaccinated (anyone who has had their first of two vaccine doses are able to access it from the 15th day after it was administered until the date of the second dose).

2. Recovered from COVID-19 within the previous six months.

3. Recently tested negative for the virus.

The EU COVID Certificate will also be accepted by venues where you are required to show a Green Certificate. For more details on the Green Certificate, visit: https://www.dgc.gov.it/web/


NETHERLANDS

The Hospitality Entry Pass - demonstrating your COVID status in the Netherlands

The Dutch Government has introduced a Coronavirus Entry Pass System to gain access to certain hospitality venues. From 25th September, this will apply to entry to bars and restaurants (but not takeaways), events (such as festivals, concerts and professional sports matches), and cultural venues (such as cinemas and theatres). Whether people have a fixed seat or not, and whether the location is indoors or outdoors, everyone aged 13 and over will have to show a valid coronavirus entry pass to gain admission. Everyone aged 14 and over will also have to show their ID along with their coronavirus entry pass.
