News that the UK will no longer require double-vaccinated people arriving from France to be quarantined comes just in time for UK racing enthusiasts keen to enjoy a series of first-class action in Deauville this month -this.

And with less than two months to go before the 100th Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe race at Longchamp, the evolution of the travel situation between the two countries will make it easier for those planning to go to Paris at the weekend. October 2. 3.

France lifted its quarantine requirement for travelers arriving from Britain in June and the UK government’s move to reciprocate on Wednesday evening will facilitate connections from UK-trained stars such as Starman, Palace Pier and Lady Bowthorpe, who are all due to make their next start in Deauville.

And Irish racing fans will not miss either as they benefit from the Digital Covid certification or the Green Pass throughout the European Union.

Like most other establishments in France welcoming more than 50 people, anyone aged 18 or over wishing to enter a racetrack must justify their absence from the Covid via the Sanitary Pass or Health Pass.

Most often this is done through the French government’s TousAntiCovid app on a smart phone, although paper certification is also accepted. In addition to racetracks, health passes are also required to enter restaurants, museums and cinemas.

And, after a few initial startup issues, QR codes from UK vaccination forms and the NHS app can also be read in France.

To be admitted, runners must meet one of the following three criteria:

  • Be two weeks after the date of their second vaccination (or first in the case of a single dose vaccine such as Johnson & Johnson)
  • Be in possession of proof of a negative PCR test carried out in the last 72 hours
  • Have a positive antigen test for more than 15 days but less than six months if they have had the virus.

For those who have not completed their vaccination, there are many free screening sites in Deauville, including one next to the entrance to the racetrack.

The TousAntiCovid app is free to download, while the advice for UK visitors at the moment is also to bring a paper version of your vaccination or test results, as well as an identity document such as a passport. , because the British vaccination certification has only very recently been synchronized with that of Europe.

The EU-wide Covid digital certification scheme went into effect in early July, meaning Irish travelers do not need to complete mandatory hotel quarantine.

It should be noted that the Irish government requires only seven days of clearance from the second dose of Pfizer BioNTech for travel restrictions not to apply, but entry into French cultural and sporting institutions requires still a 15-day authorization.

The Irish Times tracker has the number of Irish adults over 18 who have received their full immunization program at 74.5%.

Tickets are available online or at the ticket office for all race days in Deauville this month.

And for those waiting for Arc Weekend, tickets are also on sale for the first Saturday and Sunday in October for what looks to be a defining race for the season with Adayar, Hurricane Lane, Snowfall and Wonderful Tonight. to name just four of the capitals. the names should line up.

This Sunday August 8, the sprinters take center stage with Starman, Rohaan, Campanelle and Laws Of Indices all ready to run in the Prix Maurice de Gheest over six and a half stages.

The Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard – Jacques le Marois (Sunday August 15), indisputable highlight of the month and one of the biggest mile races in Europe, should see Palace Pier defend its crown, with opponents potentials including Poetic. Flare and alpine star.
