Anyone who is at least 16 years of age and wishes to reside in Monaco for more than three months in a year, or set up home in the Principality, must apply for a residence permit from the Monégasque authorities. Residence permits are not issued to minors under the age of 16; a Travel document for a foreign minor may be issued to enable overseas travel.
Once an application for a residence permit has been submitted, a ‘temporary’ card valid for one year may be issued, for which there are no particular length of residency requirements. The fee for issuing a first permit is €80.
The requirements for foreigners settling in Monaco vary depending on the nationality of the applicant.
In all cases, you must be able to prove that you have:

• Being the owner of a house or apartment; or
