Monaco Residency Approval Process
When the residency interview is complete, the approval procedure is going to take around 2 months for holders of EU passports.

This French long term stay visa must be applied for in the French Embassy/Consul in your country of residence. It is going to take somewhere between 1-4 months to receive, subject to the embassy standards in your country of residence. Only when this visa has been approved and placed in your passport can the next stage, the Monaco residency interview take place.
