Living In Monaco

Wed Jan 15, 2003 7:57 am

Dear users,

Does anyone (preferable Monegasques or French 'in the know') have any information regarding laws of duel citizenship and immigration? I've been offered a job in Monaco for later this year and wondered if having a Monegasque wife made any difference to my application for a working visa or possible permanent citizenship. I'm from Australia and neither the Australian Department of Foreign affairs nor the Monaco consulate in Sydney seem to have a clue.

Thanks.

P.S: Anyone have any other info on the country. Whats it like to live there. Are the schools any good? Would I need to travel to a french hospital if I have a heart attack lol etc...???

I've visited Monaco, but I don't know much about living there (I do know that it's notoriously difficult to become a Monegasque citizen). Until someone knowledgeable about the country answers your questions, here are a few websites that you may find useful:

http://www.monte-carlo.mc/principalitymonaco/living/
http://www.monte-carlo.mc/principalitymonaco/living/security.html
http://www.monte-carlo.mc/principalitymonaco/living/tax_system_live.html
http://www.monaco-consulate.com/faq_working.htm
http://www.monaco-consulate.com/faq_citizenship.htm (no dual citizenship for naturalized citizens apparently)

And, yes, according to one of the sites above, "The Princess Grace Hospital is equipped with the latest generation of medical material (scanner, IRM, Radiology,...)"

I visited Monaco this summer (September) and though I really liked the apparently high standards of living of the place, i.e. cleanliness, good housing, shopping, cheap duty-frees and so on, it felt VERY small even to someone like me who lives on an island of 60 square kms, in a country which has 360 square kms of land in all..
I suppose that's nothing you can't get used to though.

Well, I suppose that there is always France if things get a little cramped. lol

I finally managed to find the Consul-General of Monaco here in Sydney (lives in the street behind mine lol) and sorted everything out. I'm eligible to moce there and either get a working visa or permanent citizenship.

So all I have to think about now is whether I should give up Australian citizenship and finally make the move to Europe. The job opportunities would be better and it is a good, central location from which to pursue a career.

From a business standpoint it does make sense but I'm not sure I could sever the link with my homeland - Australia.

Superfly: You are one funny bastard! You need to be a Forumula 1 driver to afford to live in Monaco.

QANTASforever, if you really want to live in a small place in Europe, why not come to Malta? Modern and developed, high standard of living, good shopping and comparable in prices to countries like Italy, Germany etc. And best of all, if you get a Maltese wife or even just reside here for a total of five years, you can apply for citizenship. Malta allows dual citizenship! Think about it!

Turbolet,

I'm honoured that you would invite me to live in your wonderful country. But I the monaco deal sounds more and more appealing as I look into it. My wife in Monegasque and I have been offered a job there so I think I'm going to take it. Once my baby girls get to flying age I'm going to pick up and move on.

Regards,

QANTASforever

P.S: Now I've gotta ride the whole real estate rollercoaster. yay.
