Pending the implementation of a health passport, travel rules remain the measures taken by each country of destination. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself well before leaving.

Yes. Some countries require a PCR test despite your full vaccination, because vaccines protect you from serious forms but do not prevent you from contracting the disease. Based on this observation, a PCR test is therefore requested, in order to ensure that you are not carrying the virus without realizing it.

You can perform the PCR-RT 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 necessary certificates to anyone wishing to travel abroad.


  • L'Auditorium Rainier III

Residents, Monegasques and schoolchildren can, without a prescription and by appointment only, come to the National Screening Center. To make an appointment, please contact the COVID19 Call Center at 92 05 55 00, available 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Prince’s Government recommends avoiding non-essential travel to regions with a high incidence of the virus.

Travel abroad is strongly discouraged.

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

To find out more, and possibly register, go to the website www.diplomatie.gouv.fr.

France authorizes access, subject to conditions, to its territory. To enter France, residents of Monaco, aged 11 or over are required to present:

  • or proof of having received all of the doses prescribed for one of the vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency
  • either the negative result of a PCR test or an antigen test carried out less than 72 hours before departure


This obligation does not concern:

  • trips lasting less than 24 hours in the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var
  • business trips whose urgency or frequency is incompatible with the performance of a screening test or examination

In order to protect the population residing in the Principality, the Government requires all residents returning from a stay outside the Principality to make an appointment at the call center (92055500) in order to carry out a PCR test on their return to the Principality. (Except for stays of less than 24 hours in the Departments of Alpes Maritimes or Var).

It all depends on where you plan to go in Italy.

Currently, if you are traveling for less than 24 hours to an Italian destination that is less than 60km from your home, a negative PCR test is not required. On the other hand, if you want longer and / or further in Italy, the health pass will be required.

You will also need to complete the traceability form available here: https://app.euplf.eu/#/
