A Games Pass can cover the entire Olympic and/or Paralympic period (for local residents, business professionals, delivery personnel, etc.) and can be used on a one-off basis for certain users (visitors, short stays).
If you have a ticket for the opening ceremony and are not visiting the perimeter in the days leading up to it, you do not need to apply.

For red perimeters activated during road races (marathon, cycling), vehicles will not be granted exemptions. Motorized traffic will be prohibited during the activation period (except in emergencies).
The online form is available in French and English. For people without access to online services, the Pass Jeux application can be downloaded and held by another person (family, employer, etc.). Registration support sessions will also be held at arrondissement town halls (mairies).
