Has anyone entered France using the NHS Covid Pass with an Indian Version AZ Vaccine Batch Number ?


Recommended Posts



Travel has been allowed for vaccinated travellers to France since June 9th, and then this news story about the NHS using Indian jabs that are not recognised by the EMA came out a few days ago.


The NHS Covid Pass shows these jabs as Vaxzevria, and they can only be identified as being Indian by the batch number. Most European countries have said they will disregard the EMA list and still recognise these 3 batch numbers (4120Z001, 4120Z002, 4120Z003 ) that were produced in India.


I wonder if anyone is actually checking at the border? Has anyone travelled to France recently with one of these batch numbers on their pass? This article implies they take the pass at face value and don't look at batch numbers ....



Would be good to hear from fellow Motorhomers of their experiences of the new regime at check in and landing at the ports in the last few weeks in regard to this and any other extra customs checks, particularly with regard to electric bikes.

LAST MINUTE: Check out the new measures in place

to print



The French and UK governments have announced new measures that affect travel conditions between France and the UK.


French government announcement

1 / From Sunday July 18 (midnight) , unvaccinated people will have to present a negative PCR or antigen test of less than 24 hours to travel to French territory from the United Kingdom.


2 / Also, people who are fully vaccinated will no longer have to take a test to be able to enter French territory. The time required after the last injection is reduced to 7 days (double injection, or previous contamination + one injection) and 28 days (single injection).


3 / France recognizes the AZ-Covishield vaccine , so it is possible to travel to France with this type of vaccine if you are fully vaccinated.


4 / The age from which a test may be necessary (minors not accompanied by a vaccinated parent) goes from 11 to 12 years.


5 / French people living abroad (including the United Kingdom) continue to benefit from free PCR and antigen tests carried out in France
