“From today, the digital identity of Monegasques and Residents is becoming a reality and opens up new and secure perspectives at the service of the population of the Principality,” he said.

He said that the new identity and residence cards, in addition to their traditional identification purposes, become “sesames” for online access to public and private partner services thanks to an ultra-secure single authentication.

He added that the new digital identity cards embody security and the exceptional quality of life that Monaco provides. The new cards also emphasise the individual characteristics of the Principality at a time of increasing globalisation.

A practical advantage of the cards is that they provide access to services such as Monaco Telecom and SMEG without the need for additional documentation.

Frédéric Genta, who is in charge of Monaco’s digital transition, added that Monaco will become one of the world’s top five countries in using digital identification, joining leaders in the field such as Estonia and Singapore.

“In the post-crisis world, digital identity is an essential (element of) infrastructure supporting the sovereignty and attractiveness of Monaco,” he said.
