Thus, from Saturday February 6 and until further notice, passengers aged 11 or over wishing to travel to Corsica must present the following two documents upon boarding:
- the already existing declaration of honor ;
- and proof of an RT-PCR test carried out less than 72 hours before travel. Antigenic tests will no longer be accepted. The RT-PCR test is indeed more reliable and more likely to detect variants of the virus, hence the need to use this screening method. Note that road carriers are exempt from the test requirement.
The transport companies will deny boarding to travelers without these two documents (declaration of honor and proof of the RT-PCR test).
This declaration of honor, printed and signed, as well as proof of completion of the test will be required upon boarding by the transport company. Boarding will be refused to travelers without these two documents (declaration of honor and proof of the RT-PCR test).
Declaration of honor to be completed by passengers traveling to Corsica.
In addition to the checks carried out by transport companies upon boarding, checks will continue to be carried out by law enforcement to ensure that these measures are properly applied. Consequently, proof of the completion of the RT-PCR test must be kept throughout the stay in Corsica. It is likely to be requested by law enforcement when passengers arrive on the island but also when they return to the mainland.
