A Health Pass is required for access to restaurants and bars for all persons over 16 years of age who consume indoors or outdoors.

Please note: When you check the validity of a client's health pass, you should ask them for proof of their identity. The names indicated on the health proof and on the identity document must be identical. If the identity is confirmed and the health pass is valid, the customer can re-enter.

You will need to check:

  • The QR code of the health pass in digital or paper format
  • A certificate in paper or electronic format indicating the result of a PCR or antigen test of less than 24 hours
  • A certificate in paper or electronic format indicating the vaccination status for COVID-19. This concerns, for example, people who have completed their full vaccination schedule with one of the COVID-19 vaccines but have not yet been able to obtain a QR code for technical reasons or who have performed their full vaccination in another country
  • Proof of certificate of recovery following contamination by the virus. The positive test for the detection of said virus must have been carried out more than 11 days and less than six months previously. This certificate is only valid for a period of six months from the date of completion of said test.

Please note: When you check the validity of a client's health pass, you should ask them for proof of their identity. The names indicated on the health proof and on the identity document must be identical. If the identity is confirmed and the health pass is valid, the customer can re-enter.

From 15 December, this measure covers two categories of people:

  1. Customers aged 16 years or older
  2. All of your staff, including administrative staff and contributors, whether or not they have contact with customers, if their place of work is a location where customers are required to show a health pass. Health passes are only required during the hours when the establishment, location or event is open to the public

Yes and no.

Yes, if your business is a location where visitors, customers or spectators must show a health pass. This covers situations where the management wishes to require the presentation of a health pass for access, even where the capacity is below 300 people, for example exhibitions, conventions or performances.

No, if you are hosting fewer than 300 people and you do not wish to require a health pass. This applies to more private conventions and exhibitions, or to sports and performance venues.

The health pass shows proof of full vaccination or of a negative PCR or antigen test or of a certificate of recovery from COVID more than 11 days ago and less than 6 months since the last positive test. It may be presented in digital or paper format.

Only staff working at sites which are open to the public and require them to show a health pass are covered by this measure. Administrative staff who work at a location which is not open to the public will not therefore need to show a health pass.

Passes are only required during the hours when the establishment is open to the public.

If the staff at your business are required to show health passes, then this requirement extends to all external suppliers working in your business, except for those making deliveries or responding to emergencies.

No, delivery staff and those responding to emergencies do not need to show a health pass.

In the case of customers, tests are valid for 24 hours. In the case of staff and contributors, the validity period is extended to 72 hours. In practical terms, this means that a restaurant employee who is not vaccinated and has not recovered from COVID can use a test taken within the last 72 hours to attend their place of work. However, if they wish to dine in a restaurant, they will need to show a test taken within the last 24 hours.

Yes, absolutely. Customers who are not vaccinated or have not recovered from COVID must take a test every day.

In such cases, the employee’s health pass is not valid, and they may not attend their place of work unless they take a new test.

If there is no QR code, paper evidence can be considered sufficient proof.

If a person who is required to show a health pass in order to work does not present this proof, they can, if appropriate and with the agreement of their employer, take paid leave or time off in lieu. If the employee does not make use of these options or if, having used them up, they still do not provide the abovementioned proof, they may no longer do their job.

Once they have failed to do their job for more than three working days, they are invited to a meeting with their employer to consider their situation.

No, no remuneration is paid while the employee is no longer working. The employee will automatically return to their post once they are able to show a health pass.
