Covid-19 in Reunion: end of compelling reasons for vaccinated people

Release this Wednesday for people with a complete vaccination schedule. They can now travel freely, without justifying any compelling reason. Vaccinated people are also now exempt from self-isolation in both directions.

Today, Wednesday June 9, marks the day of the lifting of compelling reasons for vaccinated Reunionese against the coronavirus.

The opportunity for some to travel between Reunion and France to find their loved ones.

Reducing pressing reasons: Reunion residents flock to book their tickets

Vaccinated travelers can travel!

Between Reunion Island and the metropolis, travelers with a complete vaccination schedule can now travel without compelling reasons.

They are also exempt from self-isolation in both directions. However, a negative PCR test less than 72 hours before departure will still be required.

Minors also accompanying the trip

The overriding override granted to vaccinated parents also applies to their children, accompanying minors.

They will also be able to travel within the framework of accompanied trips (UM) to visit their families or to return to their homes.

2 to 4 weeks after vaccination

To be able to benefit from this exemption, it is however necessary to have the complete vaccination schedule, that is to say, have waited 2 to 4 weeks after vaccination to travel.

The vaccination schedule is said to be complete:

– 2 weeks after the 2nd injection for double injection vaccines (Pfizer).

– 4 weeks after injection for vaccines with a single injection (Johnson & Johnson)

– 2 weeks after the injection for vaccines in people who have had Covid (1 single injection).

No exemption for others

Conversely, and unless there is a new announcement from the Prefecture on Wednesday, the day the Prefect speaks, unvaccinated travelers will have to justify a compelling reason to travel and will have to self-isolate for 7 days.

There remains a questioning, that of people who cannot be vaccinated against Covid for medical reasons. How is it going to happen ? What will they have to present? For now, this next case is still under study.
