So many threads about the French health pass - how to fill out the application, what kind of address to use, when to expect to receive the pass, what order are they being processed, what to do when you still haven't received it and you're leaving in less than a week. I've read them all. Repeatedly.
Here's my experience.
We leave the US on September 21 and will arrive at Roissy the morning of September 22. I applied for the pass on August 30, using the address we'll be staying in France, after reading lots of thoughts on how to answer the question about address. On September 4, I edited the application to change that to my home address here in Virginia after reading more posts about what the correct answer to this thorny question is. Certain that I'd receive my QR code in a week or 10 days at most, I settled down to wait. Then I read on another thread that the applications were being taken in order - except that the people posting had numbers bigger (later) than mine. So on Tuesday, one week before takeoff, I thought I'd just peek at the application. Still "under construction." Anxiety set in. We're going to be going to Brittany, not Paris, and maybe our CDC cards won't cut it and our terrible French won't help and how will we get to go to a sweet seaside place and order our moules et frites and cider?. So I thought, why not share my anxiety with the people at the Ministere de l'Europe et des Affaires Etrangeres?
So I typed in a message in the message text box.
Bonjour, I will be arriving in France in one week and I am concerned because my application for the health pass has not been processed. Can you assist me by telling me if my application is deficient? Or can I request that the application be reviewed in time for me to have my QR code by the time we arrive on 22 September? Merci. Your friend, Penny. (OK, not the last part.)
Within a couple of hours I got a response, asking me to upload my airline tickets. While I felt sure I had done this on the original application, I just did it again, using the pdf file of my itinerary from Delta, which I'm pretty sure was what I sent them the first time.
Twelve hours later I got two emails at once. 1. My file is being processed and
2. Here's your QR code, Bonne journee!
SO. If you are sweating it because you're leaving in less than a week, maybe use the message mailbox on your application page and ask for help. I hope this works for you as it did for me.
