Health pass: access to Tourist sites in the Vendée

Posted the 20 July 2021
Leisure & Activities

Since 21 July, the Health Pass has been required at the entrance to all leisure and cultural venues. From 9 August, the 50-person threshold disappears and the pass is extended to cafés and restaurants in the Vendée.


In concrete terms, this means presenting one of the following health proofs on the TousAntiCovid application or in paper format:

  • A certificate of vaccination against Covid-19 (with a complete vaccination schedule),
  • RT-PCR or antigenic test less than 48 hours old
  • A certificate of recovery from Covid-19: positive RT-PCR or antigenic test dated at least 11 days and less than 6 months 

The Health Pass is required from the age of 18.
The obligation of the Health Pass is postponed to 30 September for young people aged 12 to 17.
Children aged 0 to 11 years are not subject to the Health Pass.

From 9 August, the presentation of a health pass becomes compulsory for the following activities

- leisure activities without any notion of size

- except in emergencies, health, social and medical-social establishments, for accompanying persons, visitors and scheduled care (no other restrictions may be imposed in addition to the health pass requirement)
- long-distance travel by air, international trains, TGV, intercity trains and coaches. Public transport (bus, tram, metro) and TER/RER are exempt
- shopping centres of more than 20,000m², only by prefectural decision,
- in areas open to the public in accommodation (restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, swimming pools, etc.) - the pass must be presented on arrival.


In the absence of a health pass, the following sites allow you to take a test directly on site. Please bring your health card with you.
