A new system for more secure passports in Monaco will take effect March 1, 2021 for 9,486 Monegasques (source: IMSEE 2019).
As a result of the implementation of this new service, no passport requests can be processed between February 22 and 26 inclusive, except in case of an emergency.
All passport applications filed on or after March 1, 2021, must be submitted with the new forms, which will be made available the last week of February. The process remains the same although photos will need to meet international standards.
The period of validity for an adult passport will be doubled to 10 years with a 50% price hike, now costing €90.
Concerning under-18s, the passport will be valid for five years (€60); for children under 3, the passport is good for three years (€30).
