Since the beginning of the health crisis the Principality of Monaco, a sovereign city-state and an independent country, has implemented a strict protocol to ensure the safety of its residents and visitors and to limit the spread of the virus.

In order to prepare your stay, you can find here the measures put in place in the Principality concerning going out, restaurants and also all the government's recommendations for your health and daily life in Monaco.

In support of the post-Covid19 business recovery plans, the Monaco Government has created the Monaco Safe Label, a genuine guarantee of health safety and security for customers and visitors to the various establishments open to the public in the Principality (restaurants, tourist sites, conference centres, local shops, sports halls, etc).

The aim is to guarantee a safe environment in the Principality, both for customers and employees, thus illustrating the responsibility of the company manager in view of current requirements and health measures enacted by the Prince's Government in the fight against the spread of the COVID-19.

These measures are part of the sanitary measures taken by the French and Monegasque authorities and are subject to change.
