A new step to exit the health crisis. This Monday May 3, 2021, France initiates the first step to exit lockdown - before heading to a second step set to start from May 19, including the reopening of non-necessary stores, terraces, and some cultural places. In the meantime, curfew is kept from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. everywhere in France. And is expected to move from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. starting from May 19, and then to 11 p.m. from June 9, and eventually lifted from June 30, if the health situation allows it.
Since this May 3, 2021, a new derogatory trip certificate to travel between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. is available. Each trip during curfew must be justified by a valid ground. 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 curfew, six derogatory trip reasons are listed. For the record, you cannot go out past 7 p.m. 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.
