Pass sanitiaire is no longer needed.

Can anyone confirm what are the requirements for entry into France and re-entry to the US?

Test and Vax card both ways or just one of them?

I just arrived at CDG this week, the only requirement to enter France was for me to upload a copy of my vaccine information into United’s Travel Ready website in order to get my boarding pass issued. The situation has changed dramatically in France since July last year when the Pass Sanitaire was required to literally go anywhere. There is zero vigilance on this point in effect, many people in the airports were not wearing masks at all until they stepped on the plane and there was zero evidence of masks or vaccine proof at any restaurant I visited.

Return flight CDG-SFO-SNA is tomorrow, the US still requires a negative Covid taken within 24 hours of departure. I used the Abbott’s BinaxNOW kit that is the subject of other threads w/ zero problems. United also asked me to upload a copy of my vaccine card, which was odd to me since I already did that to enter the country and it seems like that is something they should already have in hand.

Tests need to be performed any time the day before flight, not 24 hours.

What is the current lounge situation here? Based on the Star Alliance lounge search tool, it looks like all lounges are closed.

Star Gold and business can use the maple leaf lounge in terminal 2 but it doesn't open until 7.30 ish ( they open late with a line waiting) is a bit of a hike from United gates and is mediocre....

I posted about this a few posts above from a January flight. They were open before 7:30 and there was no line. And not a huge amount of people that day. But they had a bartender who had a heavy pour so I was happy even with the long walk.

My February and March flights had people waiting when they opened around 7.45... no big deal, you have just enough time before the first united flights board..

It was open in February and March. Haven't been in April so don't know if listing is wrong, or it recently closed for some reason.

Just wanted to confirm the the Maple Leaf lounge at 2A is indeed open. Food offerings similar to the *A lounge (eggs, crepes, sausage, cold cuts, pastries). Was directed here by the checkin agent.

Polaris (and presumably *G?) get Access No 1 which bypasses long immigration and security queues.

I actually find the current setup far superior to the T1 setup as you clear security BEFORE the lounge and the gates are much bigger and more comfortable. Lounge itself is perfectly adequate and brighter/cleaner than the *A one with more seating. And if you dont get lounge access they sell beer in the convenience store in case you fancy a pre-flight hair of the dog.

The GS agent said they dont expect to move back to T1 until the end of the year.

I’ve been told by the UA agents at CDG that T1 is being renovated and will be much nicer than before.

Maple Leaf was open 2 weeks ago -- agree that it's totally fine, but definitely nothing special.
