DURING YOUR STAY, IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
From the day of arrival in the territory, carry out a 10-days quarantine at my expense on arrival, in a dedicated facility or at home upon express request received at least 72 hours before the departure of the flight to French Polynesia, accompanied by documents justifying compliance with the sanitary requirements for home quarantine. The High Commissioner of the Republic may object to the choice of the place chosen by the person concerned if it appears that this place does not meet the sanitary requirements that justify his or her placement in quarantine upon arrival and in particular if this place does not guarantee the impossibility of contamination of a third person.
Call +689 40 45 50 00 in case of any symptom suggestive of Covid-19,* however minor. If any of the symptoms appear to be severe, call the SAMU directly at number "15", indicating that you have returned from an area of virus circulation (*fever, dry cough, tiredness, body ache, sore throat, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of smell or taste, rash, or discoloration of fingers or toes, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath [severity signs are based on the intensity of the symptom]).
Based on the diagnosis made by the Health Monitoring Office, you will have to follow their treatment indications, which may include performing a complementary SARS-Cov-2 genome detection test.
If your results are negative you can continue your vacation peacefully.
If your results are positive you will be repatriated to the island of Tahiti and you will receive the best care during your convalescence. You will be billed for all costs related with your health care.
Your family will also be invited to return to the island of Tahiti. All costs incurred by these procedures will be at your expense (related with the BVS).
A survey will be conduted by the Health monitoring service.
As soon as your condition is declared "non-contagious," your discharge from the care center and/or dedicated facility and return to your country of origin can be organized (this period can last 14-21 days after symptoms have disappeared).
SPECIFIC CONDITIONS OF ENTRY AND STAY IN FRENCH POLYNESIA
The government of French Polynesia requires the creation of a health registration form for any traveler arriving to French Polynesia by air. This formality is added to the existing entry conditions for foreigners in Polynesian territory. This formality has been in force since July 12, 2020 (DECREE no. 1689/CM of octobre 28th, 2020) for an indefinite period.
The health form is only available at www.etis.pf. It is mandatory for all resident and non-resident travelers and must be presented at airline check-in before boarding the plane to Polynesia.
In order to be eligible, travelers and minors in their families must: - Perform an RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 within three days before boarding and be declared negative. - Show the negative test results to the airline serving French Polynesia. - Complete the online health registration form. - Accept the sanitary conditions in force.
Once the procedures have been validated, you will receive your ETIS receipt by email, which you must keep with you at all time during your stay. You will be asked to complete an ETIS form each time you visit French Polynesia. ETIS is a free service platform.
