Holders of Monegasque passports have been eligible for the PARAFE service (Automatic Automated Passage of External Borders) which allows travellers to pass more quickly at a number of border crossing points in France since March 27, 2019.

The PARAFE system is now available at Aéroports de Paris (Orly and Roissy), Marseille, Lyon and Nice, as well as Eurostar terminals at Gare du Nord and Saint-Pancras. PARAFE uses biometric technology and is valid for Europeans citizens holding a biometric passport.

Paris Aéroports together and the French Ministry of Home Affairs have also deployed new gates using facial authentication technology at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Further information on the operation of this service is available on the following webpage:
