Legal benefits to relocate in Monaco

Legal benefits to relocate in Monaco

The Principality of Monaco has always maintained a strong legal system to protect its Monégasque people as well as its residents.

The accession of the Principality of Monaco as a member of the Council of Europe happened in 2004. It marked Monaco’s wish to ensure that the Monégasque law is compliant with the international standards of human rights and individual freedom. However at the same time Monaco successfully maintained the special characteristics of its own community.

When you relocate in the Principality it can be a very positive advantage for you that Monaco enjoys an extraordinary security. With its over five-hundred police officers in 2.02 km², Monaco has the largest police presence in the world on both a per-capita and per-area basis.

The Principality of Monaco is very protective about its residents. For example without a police interview you can not even apply for a residence permit. This 365 days of protection in a year has developed a way of thinking as well, which is shared by many people from the past. This is the care and respect for others and other’s properties.

It is the same with the commercial ventures and business entities. Monaco carefully protects its circles and there are segments where money and wealth becomes secondary.
