Do you only need a test though if you’ve not had the booster?

If your last jab was more than 9 months ago you are considered unvaccinated

What if you've had a booster though? Thought this meant you'd be fine regardless of when you had it.

Sounds like you are fine with a booster :

For travellers aged 18 and over, France will recognise you as ‘vaccinated’ for entry purposes if you completed your initial vaccine course within the last 9 months. If more than 9 months have elapsed since your initial course, and you have not since received a booster, you will be considered unvaccinated and must follow the rules detailed below.

It could be more definitively worded tho like the Spanish one that says ‘ no expiry date on boosters ‘…

So what happens if your last booster was more than 9 months?

I took it as "the last time a needle was inserted into your arm be it initial jabs or booster"  :)

Fucking heartbroken writing this, but it's looking increasingly likely that I won't be able to get to Paris thanks to my passport renewal not coming through in time.

With that in mind, I'm looking to swap the final ticket that I have for Wolves (ideally 3).

My final ticket is level 2, behind the goal (£129, including fees). If there is any difference we can sort that separately.

Full disclosure, I'm going to leave it until Friday to see if I get anything back from the Passport Office, but if not then this swap will be available.

Mods - I hope you don't mind me posting this. Please remove if needed.

Cheers,

Mark
I'll DM you.

What about if you are under 18. They only have single vaccine and booster

All unvaccinated children aged 12 to 17 are subject to the same travel regulations as unvaccinated adults (PCR/antigen test prior to departure), whether or not accompanied by vaccinated adults.
➡️ Children under 12 are exempt from all COVID travel restrictions in all cases.
Children aged 12-15 in England will be able to prove their vaccination status or proof of prior infection via a digital NHS COVID Pass from 3 February for outbound travel, making it easier for children and families to travel to countries which require proof of vaccination or prior infection to gain entry, avoid isolation, or access venues or services.

First ever post here - I’m going out to Paris but could only get the Eurostar that gets in 10 minutes before kickoff! Madness! Anyone else on this train or anyone know any pubs near the station to watch?

Don't need a PCR if you are classed as unvaccinted and recovered from covid in the last 6 months and have a recovery certificate.

I think these trains are usually on time and also you pass passport control in London so you do just walk off.  Having said that Paris will be busy that day obviously. With 10 mins to spare  I’d probably stay and watch it near St Pancras!

think they mean arrives into Paris with 10 mins to spare? Try Belushi’s Gare Du Nord, it’s bookings only but 10 mins before KO I’m sure they’ll do a walk in

What is actually certified as a 'recovery certificate' and how would I go about getting on of these?

Had COVID end of December...

If you had an NHS PCR positive test, you can get a recovery certificate through the NHS app.

LFTs don't count for it unfortunately.

If I was you mate I'd still head out to the fan Park if they screen the match there. You might miss the first 15 mins of the game but it would be worth it to be there for the rest of it and especially the full time whistle and post match (if we win that is)

I´m guessing most people will be heading down to this planned fan park, near "Metro Nation". It is quite far to the East of central Paris though, and the opposite direction from the stadium. The talk is also that that won´t be getting started until around 14:00.

I don´t know know what plazas people might be meeting in before that. I reckon there must be a few contenders!

I think its doubtful the fan park will be screening the match itself.

If you've got the eurostar app there's quite a few times available from st pancras, you should be able to swap your train.

I find inconceivable that they won't show the gane on the two screens provided by UEFA after they provided screening for the europa League final. They just don't want to confirm it and invite another 30k in that fanzone.

I mean seriously why would they go to the trouble of putting up two giant screens just for a 3-4 hour music event that is not even announced and we don't know who is singing or even if there is a stage. Those 2 screens are for the game...trust me. 😁

You'll find bars just outside the Gare du Nord train station, across the street. But 10mn is a short time to rush in from the Eurostar plateform !

This 100%.  The fan park is a couple of train rides away from the ground, both airports and the main tourist areas.

Where is everyone congregating during Saturday before the match?
It has been confirmed as recently as today that there will be a so-called fan zone on the Avenue du Trône, which is a wide avenue in Eastern Paris. It's less than 10mn away from the city center itself (Les Halles-Chatelet-Saint-Michel area) and 25-30mn walk. But these timings are based on everyday situation. On Saturday, it will be very crowdy and it will probably take longer.
What there will be in that "fan zone" nobody knows for the moment. The match will probably be screened there, but until there, we have not heard of anything certain here in Paris.
So, to answer the question, Liverpool fans might congregate there.

The Madrid fans, less of them are expected than the Liverpool fans, will be in a park in Saint-Denis, where the Stade de France actually is.

When moving from that possible fan zone to the stadium is it literally getting on one of the A line RER trains (west bound) and changing at Chatelet Les Halles to a B line RER train (northbound)?

If so, I wonder how long it’ll take. Could be chaos trying to get from the fan zone to the stadium

That's one the possible routes.

You also have Métro line 2 and changing at La Chapelle-Gare du Nord and then RER lines B or D.

In both cases, I'd count a good hour and a half to reach the stadium area, versus 45mn in normal circumstances. From there, you'll to walk throught security etc. so a good 45minutes I'd say until you're seated.
