Covid travel certificate: where to download exit exemptions?

A new travel certificate for containment is available. You can generate it digitally on your smartphone, but also download it in Word or PDF format (paper version).

The sounds of the halls echoed a relaxation of the progressive confinement for the end of November / beginning of December. The information was confirmed by the Head of State during his intervention on Tuesday, November 24, 2020. The measures applied are more flexible, and it is now possible to move within a radius of 20 km for 3 hours. As for businesses, they have the right to reopen from November 28. Which means that it’s finally possible to shop for the holiday season.

This “light” confinement gives rise to a new travel certificate. Like all the other certificates since the confinement of March, April and May 2020, the new document details the terms of application, in this case the reasons which justify an exemption from the exit restrictions. The certificate of displacement of the curfew is therefore no longer valid.

If bars and restaurants must remain closed, non-essential businesses however, have the authorization to reopen their doors from November 28, 2020.

The schools, colleges, high schools and public services are allowed to remain open. However, health measures in these establishments will be reinforced. The universities will remain closed. Finally, it is the return to teleworking in most companies. In case this option is not possible, work on site is still allowed for the people or companies concerned.

Finally, it is still forbidden to move from region to region. This measure should be lifted from December 15, 2020.

The reconfinement runs until December 15, 2020, with entry into force on October 29, 2020 and measures that were relaxed on Saturday 28 November 2020. As usual, it is possible to generate the travel certificate on a smartphone or download it in Word and PDF format from the website of the Ministry of the Interior. The update of the certificate is in progress and we will not hesitate to keep you informed as soon as it becomes available.
