Monaco residence card

The Monaco Residence Card (Carte de Residence, previously called Carte de Sejour) is reasonably straightforward to obtain but the requirements must be strictly followed to avoid delay or possible rejection of the application.

The applicant must have appropriate accommodation available in the Principality, and either be employed in Monaco or obtain an attestation from a Monaco bank that they have adequate funds to support themselves without working. Background checks on the reputation of the individual are undertaken by the authorities, and evidence of a non-criminal record must be obtained.
