Submitting the application

Your application may be submitted in person or posted to the General Secretariat of the Government Passport Department (main entrance of the Ministry of State).

Collecting your passport

You can collect your passport from the Passport Department five working days after the date on which the documents were sent, or according to the time indicated when the application was submitted.

Your previous passport will be returned to you on request after canceling. If it includes current visa, those pages will not be altered.

 

Useful information

Name on passport

The passport will be issued in your surname at birth.

If you are married, you may request that your married name also appears on your passport, after your own name (for example Marina Dupont marr. Durand).

If you are divorced and you would like the name of your ex-spouse to appear on your passport, you must show evidence of the ruling authorising you to use that name or an authorisation signed by him.

If you are widowed, you may request that the name of your late spouse appears after your own.

Validity

Your passport is valid for 5 years.

For children aged less than three years old at the time of issue, passports are valid for 3 years.

Visas

To find out which countries require a visa for entry, contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Please note, for some countries which do not require a visa, you must have a passport which is valid for at least six months after you leave the country.

A visa is not required for entry to the United States or the 13 countries which are part of the Schengen agreement: Austria, Belgium, Czech republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden ,Switzerland, Liechtenstein.

Children travelling alone

Authorisation to leave the country is obligatory for any minor travelling abroad who is not accompanied by a holder of parental authority.

This authorisation can be obtained by using this form:  Download file Autorisation de sortie du territoire (322-0003_01-2017) Autorisation de sortie du territoire (322-0003_01-2017) (French only)

It must be accompanied by a photocopy of an original document giving proof of the identity of the signatory.

Please note:  This authorisation is different from the parental release form that some airlines require, stating that the child is authorised to travel on the plane.

 

What to do in case of loss or theft

You must declare any loss or theft to the Police Department or to another law enforcement authority if you are a Monaco national living overseas. Without this declaration, you will not be able to obtain a new passport. You should then follow the steps for applying for a Monegasque passport.
