Document List

An ETIAS authorisation will be required for every Australian citizen for short-stay period in Monaco starting from 2021.


A valid passport is required to enter Monaco. All tourists entering Monegasque territory from another (Schengen country) are exempted from presenting their passports to Monegasque authorities. In this case, a national identity card is the only document needed.
The passport and other travel documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond the period of intended stay. All the Passports (or equivalent travel documents) issued more than ten years before the date of travel, may not be accepted.

A Schengen visa is mandatory for all nationals of Australia who stay in the country for a period greater than 90 days.
For short stay visits (less than 90 days within a period of 180 days), the visitors are exempted from obtaining a valid Schengen visa.
An ETIAS authorisation will become a mandatory requirement for every Australian citizen starting from 2021.
ETIAS will have a validity of five years, and it can be used for an unlimited number of entries.

Custom Regulations
Monegasque custom regulates and blocks the importing of several dangerous items such as weapons (the traveler must hold a valid European Firearm Pass), legal and illegal drugs. Goods can be imported into Monegasque territory following the mandatory limits regulated by the government:

If arriving from a non-EU country:

  • Tobacco: Cigarettes (200), cigars (50), tobacco (250g)
  • Alcohol: Spirits (1L), wine (4L), beer (16L)

If arriving from an EU Member State:
  • Tobacco: Cigarettes (800), cigarillos (400), cigars (200), tobacco (1Kg).
  • Alcohol: Spirits over 22% volume (10L), alcoholic beverages under 22% volume (20L), wine (90L), beer (110L).

Currency Restriction
Money Amounts of over €10,000 (or equivalent in foreign currencies) in cash or travelers' cheques must be declared at the point of entry or exit of the EU. Visitors entering Principality of Monaco with a one-way ticket and not having sufficient funds to purchase a return ticket might be refused to enter.

Minors up to 17 years of age shall be included in parent's passport.

Australia and Monaco
Two major cultural exhibitions have strengthened links between Monaco and Australia: The “Princess Grace” exhibition in Bendigo and the “TABA NABA” exhibition hosted by the Oceanographic Museum, which comprised Aboriginal Australian artworks on the theme of “Man and the Ocean.”
ETIAS is much the same as Australia’ Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA), and Monaco nationals would apply through ETA for authorisation before being allowed to travel to Australia. When ETIAS is in place in 2021, Australians will have to make a similar application online through ETIAS to travel to Monaco.
