What is a Visa?

Visa is a permission to enter, stay and transit through the territory of Montenegro.

Mere possession of a visa does not grant the entry to Montenegro. Other legal requirements for granting a foreigner the entry and stay to Montenegro must also be met according to the Law on Foreigners (“Official Gazette of Montenegro”, no. 56/14 , 28/15 and 16/16.

Visa regime between Montenegro and other countries is regulated by the Decree on visa regime (“Official Gazette of Montenegro”, No. 35/16).

Visa in itself does not offer a grant of permission to work in Montenegro. Person who intends to work in Montenegro must obtain a temporary residence permit for the purpose of employment or seasonal work, on the grounds of previously issued work permit.
