Travel Report: Into Paris, Sept 15, 2021

Mercutio

Let us walk together
Past OR future Camino
2019
For anyone interested, I flew Air France (masked at all times) from Washington Dulles to CDG Paris today and was asked to present my passport and CDC vaccination card at check-in, and once again after I deplaned in Paris. Then I went on to Customs and had my passport examined and stamped. Air France distributed a “Passenger Locator Form” during the flight but was lackadaisical about collecting it, and no one asked for the “Attestation of Health” form I was told to download, print, complete, and sign. Easy-peasy, your mileage may vary.

Mercutio,
Welcome to France! Glad to read that your journey and entry went well.
Now you are ready to walk. Do keep writing as you move along; current info is very important now.

Bon chemin and Buen camino.

Thank you very much. I will connect to Air France on the 18th (Saturday) Minneapolis to Paris. Great information!

My wife went through the same process, but with the addition of taking a train to Bayonne. She had her vaccination card, but because she was unable to get the French QR code, before she boarded the train she went to a local pharmacy and got (another) COVID test. 30 minutes later she received the results by phone, showed it at the ticket counter, and they but a blue bracelet around her wrist (the paper type used in hospitals and other places) and allowed her on the train.

Can you share what test she took? Do most pharmacies offer this test? and how much did it cost? Thank you

I am so excited I have to hold back tears of happiness. Been training since 2019 and yes, the blog community have been angels guiding me along in my adventure planning.

Sorry, I don't know. Here's all she posted on her FB page: "In order to take a train today to get to Bayonne, since my digital vaccination card from France never came through, I had to do another Covid test (easily available at many pharmacies, with results to your cell phone in 30’), and show the results at the train station, whereupon I got a wrist band allowing me onto the train."
