The travel rules remain the measures taken by each destination country. Please therefore ensure that you check what measures are in place before your departure.
Yes. Some countries require a PCR test even if you are fully vaccinated, as although vaccines protect against serious forms of illness, they do not prevent transmission. A PCR test is therefore required, to ensure that you are not carrying the virus unknowingly.
Anyone (resident or non-resident) can take a PCR test at the following certified laboratory:
- Laboratoire privé de biologie médicale des Moneghetti
41 Boulevard du Jardin Exotique, 98000 Monaco
+377 93 50 99 00
This laboratory issues the certificates you will need if you intend to travel abroad.
Monegasque nationals and residents can also take a PCR test at the National Vaccination Centre (in the Rainier III Auditorium). No prescription is necessary, but you will need to make an appointment in advance.
To make an appointment, please contact the COVID-19 Call Centre on 92 05 55 00, which is open seven days a week from 8 am to 8 pm.

The Prince’s Government recommends avoiding non-essential travel to regions with a high incidence of the virus.
However, in order to improve its response system to crisis situations, the Crisis Center of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEFA) has designed a portal allowing French and Monegasque travelers, who so wish, to declare their travel arrangements free of charge and easily.
The goal is for the MEFA or the Embassy of the country concerned to be able to quickly identify and locate French and / or Monegasque nationals who are in the country at the time of the crisis and can contact them in the event that relief operations would be organized.
By using Ariane, during your trip, and if the situation in the country justifies it:
- you will receive information and safety instructions by e-mail or SMS
- the contact person designated on your account may also be notified if necessary
