This point was confirmed by the Minister of Health Olivier Véran in response to questions from deputies on this same bill: “I confirm that the recovery certificate issued to people who have been infected with Covid and are not yet eligible vaccination – will give access to the vaccination pass, under the same conditions as it gave access to the health pass”.

What is a Covid-19 recovery certificate?

The Covid-19 recovery certificate consists of a positive Covid-19 test for more than 11 days and less than 6 months. These deadlines (more than 11 days, less than 6 months) make it possible to certify that a person has recovered from their Covid-19 infection, therefore that they have antibodies against the virus. Positive screening must imperatively be an RT-PCR or antigen test. Self-tests and serological tests are not accepted. It is the positive result of this test that you must present to obtain your health pass and, soon, the vaccination pass if the bill is adopted.

To get it, just go to the SI-DEP platform (National Covid-19 population screening information system). This is what gives access to the results of your tests. All you have to do is enter the identifiers transmitted during your test. If you have misplaced them, be aware that you can also connect using your “France Connect” identifiers, in particular those you use for your Ameli Social Security account or on the tax website. The results certificates can then be printed, a QR Code being present on the page. They can also be imported into the TousAntiCovid app to allow you to obtain your digital health pass directly.

Can I retrieve the recovery certificate on Améli?

No, only the SI-DEP platform makes it possible to recover the results of the tests, positive or negative, and therefore in the case of a positive test, its proof serving as a certificate of recovery. The identifiers to access SI-DEP are provided during your test but you can also use your Ameli identifiers via France Connect, for the tax site…

The document presenting your positive test for Covid-19 (dated more than 11 days and less than 6 months to be eligible for the health pass) includes a QR Code. It is this QR Code that you just have to scan in the Tous AntiCovid application in the “Tous AntiCovid Carnet” section.

How long is the Covid-19 recovery certificate valid?

The certificate of recovery is valid for a period of six months after the positive test. The results are stored for 6 months on the SI-DEP platform in the event of a positive test.

Can I be allowed to travel with a certificate of reinstatement?

Yes, but the conditions are more restrictive than for the health pass valid for activities in France (access to restaurants, cinemas, trains, etc.). The European health pass (which can be found under the heading “border health pass” in the TousAntiCovid app) accepts the recovery certificate but only via a positive PCR test. The antigen test is not authorized, contrary to what is allowed for the French health pass called “for activities”.
