Depending on whether travelers are vaccinated or not, both air passengers to or from Martinique and water sports enthusiasts must adhere to the rules. The prefecture recalls that “since June 9, 2021, a health pass has been temporarily introduced to accompany the French in returning to normal life, while minimizing the risks of contamination”.
As of Friday, April 1, 2022, the curfew has been lifted in Martinique. It was proclaimed on July 13, 2021 due to a critical health condition.
As a result, travel conditions to and from Martinique have evolved. To leave the island to another national territory, an affidavit is required†
Any passenger aged 12 years or older, if he is not vaccinatedmust justify that his move is based on a compelling motive of a personal or family nature, an urgent health reason or a professional reason that cannot be postponed. In addition, he undertakes to:
- Present the negative result of a biological virological screening test (RT-PCR) less than 72 hours or of an antigenic test that allows the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 N protein less than 48 hours before boarding.
- Accept that a screening test or examination can be performed on arrival, 7 days after the 2nd injection for double injection vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca, Novavax), 4 weeks after the injection for single injection vaccines (Johnson & Johnson), 7 days after the injection (only one injection needed) of a vaccine in people who have already had a history of Covid-19.
“Vaccinated passengers are not subject to these obligations”† indicates the prefecture.
A vaccinated person is a person who can confirm that a full vaccination schedule has been completed. Since February 1, 2022, in order to keep their vaccination schedule as fully recognised, persons aged 18 years or older who wish to enter the national territory must have received a dose of complementary messenger RNA vaccine no later than 9 months after the injection of the last required dose.
Registration of passengers at the airport.
Likewise, any passenger aged 12 years or older, if he is not vaccinatedis subject to the same rules as those who leave the island. If the latter has been vaccinatedhe must present the negative result of a biological virological screening test (PCR test) less than 72 hours old or an antigenic test that allows the detection of the N-protein of SARS-CoV-2, which is less than 48 hours before the boarding has been performed.
For passengers to and from Guadeloupe, Saint-Martin, Saint-Barthélemy, Guyana: any passenger aged 12 or older, if not vaccinated, must justify that his trip is based on a compelling personal or family reason, an urgent health reason or a professional reason that cannot be postponed. here again, vaccinated passengers are not subject to these obligations.
Since 9 June 2021, passenger flows between France and abroad have been reopened “by methods which vary according to the health situation of third countries and the vaccination of travellers”.
A classification of countries has been drawn up on the basis of health indicators. It will probably be adapted to the evolution of the epidemic situation. Since July 1, 2021, the “European pass”, also known as “EU digital COVID certificate”, has been introduced in all Member States, with a transition period of six weeks. Its use is legally planned until June 30, 2022.Prefecture of Martinique

“Tor passenger aged 12 years or older, if not vaccinatedmust justify that his trip is based on a compelling personal or family reason, an urgent health reason or a professional reason that cannot be postponed.
He also undertakes to confirm the negative result of a biological virological screening test (PCR test) of less than 72 hours or an antigen carrying out the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 N protein less than 48 hours before the boarding, so that a screening test or examination can be performed on arrival.
If this traveler has been vaccinated he must also provide the negative result of a PCR or antigen test of less than 72 hours performed less than 48 hours prior to his departure.
If the person concerned has not been vaccinatedthis is the same limitation as before. Furthermore she has to “undertake to declare his place of isolation on honor”. Coming from Martinique and heading to a red country, the trip must be justified by an imperative health, professional or family reason.
