Reserving a Covid test at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport

Hello. Has anyone tried to make an appointment online for a Covid test at Charles de Gaulle airport? The website requires a phone number, which will be used to confirm the appointment by text. However, there doesn't seem to be an option for a phone number from countries other than France. I've tried the US country code before and after my phone number, and it didn't work. If you made such an appointment and were from the US or another non-France country, how did you enter your phone number? (I've applied for my US vaccination to be recognized in France, but want to be prepared in case that doesn't come through in time. I'm booked on a flight from Paris to Biarritz, and will need the QR code.)

None yet; perhaps the Portugese (2021?)

Don't know if this will help or not, but had to input Canadian (same format, code as US) phone number into online form for Portuguese Covid test/location tracking for for inbound travellers. Rejected many formats. Finally accepted 001 as the international code, then 10 digits area code plus phone number all together without dashes or spaces as phone number. For example 001 in first box; 1234567890 in second (for imaginary phone number (123) 456-7890.

Good luck!

Thank you, Friend. This may help. The system was no longer automatically cutting off my phone number at 10 digits when I used your suggestion, but I also did not get the confirmation text as the website said I would. I'll keep trying. Best regards!

We flew into CDG last Saturday. Had applied and received an Application Received message back from the French Area 1 email address on August16th. Unfortunately, our passes never arrived. And yes, checked my spam messages too. On arrival, went to the Covid test center in terminal 2. Stood in a very crowded line for about 4 hours. Was originally offered a PCR rapid test, but when I told them I needed the test to board the AF flight to BIQ, they said I needed the antigen test. At the moment of the test, I was told i would just get a positive/negative test result and not a pass Sanitaire! No QR code either. Went ahead with the test and waited 30 minutes for the result. As we were walking to terminal 2F, we saw a pharmacy offering covid tests. Went in, and in about 10 minutes, we had the passes, QR codes and all! No appointment needed. 35 euros each. The covid test center is basically for people flying out of CDG who need a test result to get admittance back into their home countries.
And in SJPP we were asked for the pass, and it was scanned, at every restaurant - bar we went to. Same for Refuge Orisson!
Just go to the pharmacy on at terminal 2F!
