France: PCR and antigen tests paying off from this Wednesday

PCR and antigen tests will no longer be free for foreign tourists arriving in France, from this Wednesday, July 7. The announcement was made on June 30 by government spokesman Gabriel Attal in a press statement. From now on, foreign tourists will have to pay for their Covid-19 detection test in France when they were free until then. According to the French government spokesperson, it is "a matter of reciprocity knowing that these tests are paid in most countries for French people who travel". 


Thus, the tests will be billed to tourists in France up to 49 euros for PCRs and 29 euros for antigens. Prices lower than those of most European countries. Indeed, in Belgium, the price of a laboratory PCR test is capped at 55 euros and 120 euros for an antigen test while in Spain, the price of the PCR test varies between 75 and 150 euros while the price of the tests antigens vary between 30 and 45 euros. In Germany, the prices for PCR tests start at 50 euros, while for the antigen, it starts at 25 euros, knowing that the prices vary by region.


 In addition, the tests may be chargeable for everyone in France. Not immediately, but this is an avenue that is being explored, said Olivier Véran, Minister of Health. The government official explained by giving the example of a "comfort test" carried out "before going to a disco" when "we are not symptomatic (or) contact case".
