GO AGAINST COVID 19 | What Are Vaccine Passports And How Would They Work?

What is the NHS COVID Passport?

The NHS COVID Passport is a digital certificate that proves your COVID-19 status, allowing you certain travel freedoms. The Pass shows either your vaccination details or test results.

Anyone over the age of 16 in England can get an NHS COVID Passport for international travel. The NHS COVID Passport gives you greater freedom to travel and attend other events across the UK.

How and where can I get the NHS COVID Passport?

You can get your Pass in 2 ways:

· You need to have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To travel abroad, you will usually receive your pass within 24 hours of having your vaccination.

· You must have recovered from COVID-19 within the past 6 months. To travel abroad, you will need to have had a positive PCR test within 6 months and have finished self-isolating and subsequently tested negative.

The NHS COVID Passport is available digitally, either using the NHS app or website. You can download it as a PDF or get it sent to you in an email.

Your digital versions are valid for:

· 30 days after your vaccination(s), but the 30-day period refreshes every time you log in.

· 48 hours after a negative PCR or lateral flow result.

· 30 days after a positive PCR test, but the 30-day period refreshes every time you log in (for up to 180 days after you took the test).

You can get an NHS COVID Passport letter sent to you in the post, but only for proof of vaccination, not test results. You will need an NHS login to be able to access your COVID Passport. If you don't have a login, you'll be asked to create one.

Disneyland Magny-le-Hongre|1.63km from downtown
If we ever come back to Disneyland Paris and are staying off Disney property, B&B is our absolute go-to. It has everything you need, it is in a convenient location, AND breakfast is included. We are really appreciative of the price and the value of our stay there. It perfectly fit our travels, budget, and needs. The croissants and Nutella at breakfast are SO GOOD and something we will look forward to when coming back. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone I know traveling to Disneyland Paris in the future.

The hotel is very well located near the metro and line 14 which serves the center of Paris. The rooms are small but adequate for a night or two. Very pleasant staff. Varied and plentiful breakfast buffet.

It was horrible. If you consider whether to book this hotel or not, simply don’t! Even though the location is perfect (right in the middle between the Louvre and the Arc du Triumph) its definitely the 4**** status not worthy. It’s minimalistic with poor overall decoration, rooms are a huge disappointment as well. We have booked Double Superior Room (no 329), well it was far from being superior. In fact the room however spacious, wasn’t corresponding to the pictures which you see when booking the room. The bathroom poorly made and maintained. The breakfast hall looks like a canteen in a sportclub. Big disappointment was the reaction of the reception staff when our neighbors decided to have a party in their room till about 3:00 am. You could literally hear people speaking, laughing as if they were next to you. So if you are looking for a proper 4**** hotel with the right ambiance, rooms and service I advise to rent a room in Le Belmont Hotel - it’s worth every penny.
