As a result of the social distancing measures introduced by the Prince’s Government to manage the health crisis, Monaco City Hall has decided to allow restaurants to extend their terraces for free.

This applies to all requests authorised by the Commune Property – Shops, Covered Market Halls and Outdoor Markets Department in agreement with the Council of the Commune, and only until the Government lifts the health measures.

Businesses in Monaco that are encountering proven financial difficulties may request a review of their situation with a view to staggering tax payments (corporate tax and/or VAT only). The businesses concerned nonetheless have a responsibility to comply with their reporting obligations by the legal deadlines.

The aim of the "Monaco Safe" certification is to ensure that customers and visitors to the Principality of Monaco are received in the best possible conditions in shops, hotels, restaurants, conference centres, museums and all places that are open to the public, in compliance with the health regulations in force to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Through this certification, the Government also wishes to highlight the efforts made by professionals and their employees to receive their customers in the best possible conditions.

Certification is obtained on a voluntary basis, is free of charge and following a full end-to-end paperless procedure.  A dedicated online service is available to make it easier to apply and process applications within a very short timescale, it being stressed that the certification process is based on the implementation of the health protocols that are currently in force for each sector of activity and are known to all:

Certified economic players will be able to use the official "Monaco Safe" logo in their own communications and will benefit from high visibility on the networks that are commonly used by the State.  In addition, the Tourist and Convention Authority and the Welcome Office will work with professional representative bodies and the Monaco Economic Board in order to make the "Monaco Safe" certification known to as many players as possible, well beyond our borders.
