Principle and conditions

The residence certificate is proof of your current residence in the Principality.  It is issued to residents of the Principality by the Residency, Certifications and Lost-and-Found Section.

Residence certificates are valid for six months. They are signed by the Director of Police Department or by a Police superintendent. The fees are €5 in tax stamps.

The residence certificate for tax purposes is valid for one year. It is signed by the Police Commissioner or by a Police Superintendent and the fee is €600 in the form of embossed tax stamps (to be paid by bank card at the counters of the Residency, Certifications and Lost-and-Found Section).
