MONACO: TESTIMONIAL

We are a family with 2 young children, and our family business was doing well at home. We have a few friends living in Monaco and have been to the tiny principality countless times to visit. Both my husband and I adored the lifestyle at the quaint yet bustling city of Monte-Carlo, and our children loved the sunny Mediterranean weather.

So we decided to move to Monaco, after learning that was actually possible during a consultation with Inimex. They proposed for us to get the residency in France first with their wealthy individual program and then apply for Monaco residency once we are in France. Guess what? It worked so well that I was shocked! The entire process was so fast that our family obtained our Monaco residency within the year.

Now my husband and I have fully embraced our life in the luxurious city state. Our children go to very prestigious private schools and speak fluent French and English, and we travel very often to the neighbouring countries of France and Italy. We bought a big house and some nice cars. We do not have to worry about any crime as the city is very safe and my husband drives his car around without any hesitation, unlike the area where we come from. Inimex also helps us renew our residency every year, so we really had nothing but great experiences with our move to Monaco.
