Which areas are accessible before the Olympics?

From the platform, it is now possible to request your Games Pass to travel within the security perimeter set up in Paris during the Olympic Games. A “good reason” is then required to accompany your request, specifies the prefect of police Laurent Nuñez on Franceinfo.

It is between July 18 and 26 that you will need to have the Games Pass to travel around the Seine. The QR code will be necessary to travel by motor vehicle in the red zone unlike pedestrians who will not need it. The authorities will, however, require proof of “legitimate interest” in case of control if you are on foot.

On the other hand, it will be obligatory to present your sesame to enter the gray zone called “Internal security and the fight against terrorism” (Silt), vehicles and pedestrians.

For motorized vehicles, QR codes can be issued “almost instantly”warns Laurent Nuñez on the microphone of Parisian. As for pedestrians, the Games Pass will take longer to arrive for reasons of “national security” since each request requires an administrative investigation by the authorities. Gérald Darmanin explained last April that the applicants' profiles will be compared to those in the intelligence services' files.
