France reopened its borders with Europe on 15 June, based on the principle of reciprocity: any resident of a country from within the European space which has opened its borders to France can now enter the country without restriction.
However, since restrictions and conditions differ from one country to the next, you are advised to check carefully before travelling within the European space.
In addition, Europe’s external borders will remain closed until 1 July 2020, when France will begin gradually opening its external Schengen borders. This opening will be handled on a differentiated basis depending on the health situation in different third countries and in accordance with procedures agreed at the European level.

These people arriving on Monegasque territory may be placed in quarantine by decision of the Director of Health Affairs, accompanied, if necessary, by a certificate of cessation of work drawn up by a Medical Inspector of Public Health.
Persons returning from the European Area are not concerned by these measures.
