Administrative formalities

You should check the formalities for entry and for your stay carefully with the embassy and consulate of the country to which you are travelling .  

Passports are issued to all Monegasque nationals on request by the Ministry of State.  There are no age restrictions. 

No visa is required for entry to the U.S.A. and the 25 countries in the Schengen Area:  Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

For all other countries, you can find the necessary information in our advice sheet on essential documents for Monegasques .

If you need a visa, make contact with the foreign consular services in France in good time.  You may need to allow sufficient time to produce certain documents, depending on the country, such as:  forms, photographs, an extract from criminal record, bank account details, return travel tickets, etc.

Don't forget:

In case of difficulties abroad, you should contact Monaco's Embassies or Consulates, or if this is not possible, the French Embassies or Consulates .

Travelling abroad with children

If you are travelling with a minor:

  • A child travelling with his/her parents must have his/her own identity card or passport if he/she is not mentioned on one of the identity documents of his/her parents.
  • To visit certain States, the passport must still be valid several months after the planned date of return.

Children travelling alone

Minors are authorised to travel without their parents, provided they are carrying:

In addition, some foreign airlines require minors departing from Nice to carry an affidavit written in English by their parents.  This declaration must mention the identity of the child and any accompanying persons, if relevant, as well as comprehensive information on the outward and return flights (flight schedule:  destinations, date, flight number, timetable, etc.)

The flight Captain has the power to decide whether to accept or refuse a traveller on board his/her aircraft.  He/she can also require an affidavit, even if this is not in accordance with international rules on the movement of persons.  Parents of minors are therefore recommended, as a precaution, to prepare an affidavit in English in the knowledge that it could be required by airlines when checking in at the airport of arrival or departure.  See the model Affidavit : Download file Statement issued on honour Statement issued on honour .

Advice to Travellers

The "Advice to travellers" section of the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs offers general advice on travelling abroad and information sheets and specific advice for most countries in the world.

This site is aimed only at French nationals.  However, some of the information can also be useful for Monegasque nationals.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of the Principality of Monaco cannot, under any circumstances, be responsible for the information contained in the official site of the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

It is therefore important to remember that if you are planning to travel to a foreign country, you are solely responsible for your decision.

The information contained in the "advice to travellers" section is subject to change and may be incomplete.  It is indicative only and offers no guarantee.  The aim is to help Monegasque travellers make the right decisions when planning a journey.  Therefore, this advice does not replace the need for prudence.

Responsibility:  You are reminded that prospective travellers are solely responsible for their decision to travel to a foreign country, whatever the safety advice given by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation cannot be held responsible under any circumstances for accidents or incidents that may arise during a journey.

Cancellation of a journey:  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation cannot be held responsible if, following its recommendations, an individual or a group suffers financial loss after cancellation of a journey.  You are advised to check the terms of the insurance offered by airlines and travel agencies and inform yourself of current security conditions in your chosen country before paying a deposit.
