This affects venues including the Opera House, Théâtre Princesse Grace and the Grimaldi Forum spaces.

3 . Staff in direct contact with artists in the context of an entertainment activity.
The person in charge of the establishment or venue hosting an entertainment activity may make access to this establishment or venue subject to the presentation of one of the documents listed in point 2 above for staff in direct contact with artists, regardless of the number of visitors or spectators hosted.

4. Staff of an establishment or place of congress activity.
The person in charge of the establishment or venue hosting a congress activity may require staff to present a health pass for access to this establishment or venue.

7. Visitors to the CHPG or an EHPAD
At their request, the managers of health establishments and establishments for the elderly are entitled to ask for the production of a health pass for the access of visitors to certain services. This does not apply to patients who have an appointment for a medical consultation or who have to go to the emergency room.

8. Persons practising a sport in an association or federation, whether indoors or outdoors.
With the exception of sports in schools, students who have to take a school examination for certification and professional sportsmen and women

9. As of 17 January, employees and collaborators whose work is essential to the continuity of the activity of certain companies or public entities that provide essential services to the Principality
This concerns, for example, certain employees or collaborators of several administrations, telecommunication, energy and water suppliers or the banking sector, to mention but a few examples.

Broadly speaking, employers cannot require staff to show a health pass in order to attend work. There are three exceptions, however:

  1. Employees working as part of performances, conferences or events, where managers have decided that staff are required to show a health pass to attend work. Specifically:
    • For cultural events and performances, managers of venues or premises hosting a performance can make access to the venue or premises subject to the presentation of a health pass or equivalent proof for staff in direct contact with artists, regardless of the number of visitors or audience members in attendance
    • For conferences or trade fairs, managers of venues or premises hosting a conference can require staff to present a health pass for access to the venue or premises. Managers can also require visitors and contributors to show a health pass when there are fewer than 1,000 visitors
    • For cultural events, performances, conferences and trade fairs with attendance of more than 300 people, staff and contributors must show a health pass
  2. Since 30 October 2021, the date of entry into force of the law on mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for some categories of people working or acting as a volunteer, pupil or student in Monegasque healthcare facilities (hospitals, clinics, etc.) or facilities for elderly people or people with disabilities, or in contact with elderly or vulnerable people, these individuals have been required to show a vaccination schedule proving that they have received the full course of vaccination. Employees working in the following roles are also covered by this requirement: doctors, dental surgeons, midwives, pharmacists or pharmacy assistants, healthcare assistants, osteopaths, all non-healthcare staff working with one of the professionals listed above who have direct contact with said professional’s patients, all service personnel in the Monegasque Fire and Emergency Service, anyone acting in a capacity as a home help to people aged 60 or over, dependent persons and people with disabilities, and finally anyone working in medical transport. Vaccination against COVID-19 provides highly effective and reliable protection against the disease not only for those who are vaccinated, but also for those they come into contact with.
    As such, the aim of this law is to protect these groups, who are at particularly high risk of infection from the SARS-CoV-2 virus, for their own sake and for the sake of the vulnerable or fragile people that they look after.

In a first email you will receive a QR code corresponding to your first vaccination. A few hours later, you will receive in a second email the QR code which validates your second vaccination and which, when checked, will be displayed in green.

The Monaco Government issues both vaccination certificates as some countries outside the European Union may require these two proofs to enter their territory.

In Monaco and in Europe, only the QR code of the second vaccination is required.
