Firstly, when entering the Principality of Monaco, everyone over 16, whatever their nationality, must be able to present all the documents required according to their zone of origin (green zone, orange zone, red zone). Before your departure, check the measures in force according to the colour zone of your country.

 The following health measures will be applied during MYS 2021 in accordance with the rules set up by the Gouvernement Princier de Monaco and Informa AllSecure's enhanced health and safety standards imposed on all Informa Group events following Covid-19.

  • It is mandatory to wear masks at all times. All participants, without exception, in the MYS enclosure and during the visits of yachts and tenders must wear a surgical mask, FFP2 or Bettimask™ fabric mask. It is recommended to change the mask every four hours and the visitor must bring their own masks and hydroalcoholic gel.

  • Access to the MYS site requires presentation of a valid health pass. This can be in paper or digital format, and can be a Monaco Safe Pass, Covid EU digital certificate, negative PCR or antigenic test result less than 72 hours old, a complete vaccination*, or proof of Covid-19 recovery certificate (a positive PCR test older than 11 days and less than six months).

  • Each visitor must personally present their health pass each day to gain entry to the show. In accordance with the law in force, the presentation of an identity document will be requested (passport, identity card, driving license). No data recording will be made during the control by the MYS.

  • The control of the health pass will be carried out daily. The holder of a valid health pass will be given a 'health pass' bracelet of the day to be worn on the wrist. They will then be able to enter and leave the MYS premises the same day without having to show their health pass again.

Any person that does not presenting a valid health pass will be refused entry to the MYS site even if he/she has to perform a service on behalf of an exhibitor.
