The essentials The Ministry of the Interior has put a new, simplified version of the extraordinary travel certificate online. The first two-page version was heavily criticized.
Two certificates in one day! After the many criticisms of the derogatory travel certificate that was posted online on Saturday morning, the Home Office revised its copy and released a simpler version that Saturday evening.
Eight instead of five reasons for the exemption are entered in the certificate. The travel certificate is available again for this Saturday morning on one page instead of both pages.
It has been renamed “Certificate for Exceptional Travel During Curfew (between 7pm and 6pm)”.
What are the overarching reasons?
Eight reasons to travel are listed on this new certificate:
Professional activities, education and training Counseling and care Compelling family reasons, vulnerable people and child care services Disabled legal or administrative subpoena Mission of general interest Transit and long distance travel Pets

When should this certificate be used?
This certificate must be used during curfew between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. if a trip is made for one of the permissible reasons. All French departments are affected.
For the 16 departments that are again blocked for a month (Île-de-France, Hauts-de-France, Seine-Maritime, Eure and Alpes-Maritimes), it is no longer necessary to have the certificate for a journey of less than 10 km to be used between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. Only proof of address (ID, EDF invoice, taxes) is sufficient. On the other hand, residents of the 16 departments must fill out the certificate for any movement of more than 10 km during the day and in case of movement during curfew.
Is the digital version available?
The digital version of this new certificate has been available again since Saturday evening. Access was blocked that morning. A similar situation was reported in the TousAntiCovid application. Click here to download the digital certificate.
