From March 14, the vaccine and health pass are no longer required to visit the Eiffel Tower.

UPDATE : From March 14 - end of the vaccine & health pass. End of the facemask inside buildings. 

 

A valid "vaccine pass" is now mandatory for all visitors 16 years and over. For visitors aged between 12 and 15 years included, a health pass will remain mandatory. Visitors below 12 years old are exempted from the health pass.

Vaccine pass required for 16 years and over

For visitors from: 

  • France
  • European Union countries
  • Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, United Kingdom (England and Wales), Switzerland 

What is a vaccine pass? The term “vaccine pass” covers two documents:

  • A vaccination certificate: attesting that the individual is fully vaccinated as of at least 7 days ;
  • A recovery certificate attesting to an old positive Covid-19 test, from more than 11 days and with an expiration date depending on the vaccine status.

See the conditions in detail here (in French).

For visitors aged between 12 years and 2 months and 15 years inclusive, from:  

  • France

What is a health pass? The term “health pass” covers three documents:

  • A vaccination certificate: attesting that the individual is fully vaccinated as of at least 7 days ;
  • A recovery certificate attesting to an old positive Covid-19 test, dating back from more than 11 days and with an expiration date depending on the vaccine status;
  • A recent negative Covid-19 test result, either an RT-PCR or antigen test, performed in the last 24 hours

See the conditions in detail here (in French).

For visitors from countries outside the European Union

Requirements are the same for visitors from countries outside the European Union. A vaccine pass will also be required for visitors 16 years and over, and the equivalent of a health pass for 12 to 15-year-olds.
