France is placed in lockdown again starting Friday October 30, to curb the coronavirus epidemic. And whoever says quarantine says return of the derogatory trip certificates: for this new lockdown, 3 derogatory trip certificates are available to enable you to prove the necessity of your trip. These documents are to print out, copy on paper or fill in on your smartphone including via the TousAntiCovid app.

A new step of measures to curb the propagation of the coronavirus epidemic has been made. This Saturday November 28, France enters the first lockdown exit phase. From now on, you can get out for a walk within a 20-km perimeter aorund your home and for 3 hours maximum, go to a place of workship or in a store, or beauty salon. But it does not mean derogatory trip certificates are no longer needed for the aforementioned reasons.

This November 24, President Emmanuel Macron has announced the first easing measures of the lockdown. Even though it is still ban to go to friends' or hold big family reunions, there is more freedom, specifically to go shopping, go to a religious service, enjoy a walk in the open air, or take care of yourself.

Each trip will have to be proven with a motive. For each trip, you will have to download and fill in a certificate from the government website or the websites of the Ministry of Health and the Secretary of the Interior.

Note that certificates are also available on smartphone via the TousAntiCovid application, as it was during curfew.

For this new lockdownthree certificates will be available. The first two are like the ones we already had: the derogatory trip certificate to prove the necessity of your trip, as well as the professional certificate if you are heading to your workplace. A third certificate has been created for the new quarantine: for school trips. This is where the biggest between the two lockdowns stands: this time, schools, junior highs and high schools remain open. A new box to tick on the derogatory trip certificate has been made for parents dropping their children to school.

For the record, you cannot go further than one kilometer from your home and for another reason that those allowed. If you happen to be out without a certificate, you can be fined €135 and up to €3,750 and six months' jail.

You can now move out with your certificate for the following reasons:

  • Trips between the house and place of exercise of occupation, when they are vital to your occupation and that you are not able to work from home (by permanent certificate) or business trips that could not be adjourned;

  • Trips to first-necessity shopping in authorized places (list on gouvernement.fr);

  • Trips for health reasons;

  • Trips for urgent family matter to aid vulnerable people, take care of children, or dropping children to school;

  • Short trips close to your house, related to personal exercise excluding all collective sport sessions, to walk the dog

  • Trips for disabled people and their caretaker;

  • Trips related to transits for long-distance trips;

  • Trips to take part in general interest tasks as asked by the administrative authority;

  • Trips required by an administrative or court summon
