Collecting your passport

You can collect your passport from the reception desk of the Ministry of State, five working days after the date on which the documents were received, or according to the deadline indicated on a receipt issued to you when the application was submitted.
Once it has been cancelled, your old passport can be returned to you on request. Simply tick the relevant box on the passport application form.

Useful information

Name on passport

The passport will be issued in your surname at birth, i.e. your patronymic name. .

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.

On the sole condition that these customary names are mentioned on your certificate of nationality.

Validity

Your passport is valid for 10 years for an adult.

For children aged between 3 and 18 years, at the time of issue, passports are valid for 5 years. And, 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 and Cooperation.

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)  

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 law enforcement authority.

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 attaching it to your file.
