The Monégasque identity card (in French: Carte d’identité Monégasque Electronique or CIME) is issued to Monégasque citizens by the Monaco City Hall. It can be used as a travel document when visiting countries in the Schengen Area, as well as to Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, and Romania.[1] (IATA states it's also valid for the UK, although no other information suggests this.) The card is issued with a validity of 10 years free of charge (unless applying for a replacement in the event of loss or theft). The card is produced for the Monaco City Hall by Oberthur Technologies.[2]

Since 30 March 2009, Monégasque identity cards have been issued containing a biometric chip.[3]
