The French parliament gave the thumbs up to the controversial vaccine pass on Sunday, excluding unvaccinated people from restaurants, cinemas and other venues.
A simple health pass (a negative test, complete vaccination certificate or recovery certificate) will remain valid for people over 12-years-old to access health establishments and medico-social services, except for emergencies, for patients and those accompanying them.
Minors between the ages of 12 and 15 will still be required to present the current health pass to access leisure activities, restaurants and bars, fairs or interregional public transport.
Meanwhile, presenting a pass belonging to someone else and passing on a pass to someone to be used fraudulently will now be an offence punishable by a fixed fine of €1,000 for the first offence, compared with the current €135.
Possession of several false passes will be punishable by five years in prison plus a fine of €75,000.
