UK travellers not on Monaco’s red list

UK travellers not on Monaco’s red list

By Cassandra Tanti - May 28, 2021

Monaco is not applying the same mandatory quarantine rule on travellers from the UK that France is set to impose from Monday 31st May.  

Just when things looked like they were getting back to normal, France put UK on its compulsory isolation list due to the spread of the Indian variant in that country. It means that anyone arriving to France from the UK must undertake self-isolation at a specific destination for a period of seven days, effective 31st May.

However, the rule doesn’t apply to Monegasque citizens and residents flying in to the French Riviera airport on route to the Principality. Nor does it apply to UK citizens entering the Principality.

So far, Monaco has not changed its list of ‘red’ countries. Therefore, only travellers coming from South Africa, Argentina, Brazil, Chile or India are required to self-isolate for seven days, and even this period can be shortened if they obtain a negative PCR test from a laboratory in the Principality.

For people travelling from the UK, only a negative PCR test carried out within 72 hours is required if they are stopped by Monegasque authorities.

The circulation of Covid throughout the Principality continues its downward trend. On 29th May, there were no new cases of the virus detected in the Principality and no patients were hospitalised at the Princess Grace Hospital. The incidence rate has fallen to a new low this year of 21, while over 43% of the population have now been vaccinated.
