According to Travel Weekly, the French president aims to reopen France widely by the end of June.
The country will allow travelers from outside the EU on Wednesday, June 9. However, they will need to present a new “health pass,” reports BerksLive.
Details of the passes are not yet revealed, but they will likely include either a vaccine certificate or a negative PCR test.
A similar pass would also be required to attend large events.
According to French media, Mr Macron said: “The health pass should not be compulsory to access everyday things like restaurants, theaters and cinemas or to go to see friends.
“But for places with high traffic, like stadiums, festivals, fairs or exhibitions, it would be absurd not to use it.”
The country has seen its Covid rate drop since the introduction of a third lockdown in April, but the numbers are high in some areas.
Marcon’s four-step plan to ease restrictions includes the reopening of high schools and high schools on Monday, May 3.
On Wednesday, May 19, the current 7 p.m. curfew will be pushed back to 9 p.m., with the reopening of cafes and restaurants outside.
Cinemas, museums and theaters may open, with restrictions on visitors.

On Wednesday, June 9, the curfew will be extended to 11 p.m. and the health pass will be introduced for those going to stadiums and major events, as well as for tourists coming to the country.
Wednesday June 30 will see the curfew completely lifted – although nightclubs will remain closed.
Mr Macron said it was time to start ‘taking back our French way of life’ and that people needed ‘friendliness’, culture and sport. But he added that people must remain “careful and responsible”.
If he said he hoped the measures would be relaxed across the country, an “emergency brake” could be used “in territories where the virus is too present.”
