repare your stay in Corsica with peace of mind.


What is the “health pass”?

It is a digital or written certificate that allows to check if the person is vaccinated against Covid19 or to verify that he/she is not contaminated. Since 21 July 2021, this pass has been mandatory in many establishments.
From August 1st the obligation will be extended to bars, restaurants and pubs.
One of the following certificates will be required:
  • Certificate of vaccination (1st and 2nd injection at least 7 days after the 2nd injection and 4 weeks for the Johnson and Johnson vaccine)


  • From Friday 10 December : the health pass for Corsica is aligned with the interregional transport regime for the mainland. This leads to a change in the validity period of the RT-PCR or antigenic tests required for non-vaccinated persons. Instead of being valid for 72 hours for a PCR test and 48 hours for an antigenic test, the RT-PCR and antigenic tests will only be valid 24 hours before boarding (note that the 24 hours start from the time of sampling). The rest (vaccination and recovery certificate) remain unchanged.

  • certificate of immunity older than 11 days and less than 6 months
  • Sanitary pass for teenagers, people aged 12 years and 2 months to 17 years will have to present this valid pass to access places and events where it is required.
  • As of 15 October, all PCR and antigenic tests will no longer be reimbursed, with some exceptions. PCRs will cost 44 euros, antigens a minimum of 22 euros.
All information is available on the government website.

To prevent the spread of VIDOC-19, follow these recommendations:


  • Wash your hands frequently. Use soap and water, or a hydro-alcoholic solution.
  • Keep away from anyone who coughs or sneezes.
  • Wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • If you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with the crease of your elbow or with a tissue.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
  • See a health care professional if you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.
  • Call your health care provider first. He or she will be able to quickly refer you to the appropriate health care facility. This protects you and prevents the spread of viruses and other infections.
Masks :
Masks can help prevent people who wear them from spreading the virus to others. Wearing a mask alone does not protect against VIDC-19. It should be combined with physical distancing and hand hygiene measures. Follow the advice of local health authorities.
