UK Visa for Montenegro

Passport Requirements:
When traveling to Montenegro, your passport must have been issued within the last 10 years and remain valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond your intended departure date from Montenegro.

Dual Citizenship Consideration:
If you possess dual citizenship, Montenegrin authorities will recognize you as a citizen of the country that issued the passport you used to enter Montenegro.

Visa Regulations:
For stays lasting up to 90 days, you can enter Montenegro without needing a visa. According to Montenegrin law, a “90-day stay” entails a cumulative total of 90 days within a 180-day timeframe, beginning from your initial entry.

Entry Formalities:
Upon entry into Montenegro, it’s essential to ensure that the border police stamp your passport. This measure helps prevent complications when verifying the duration of your stay in the country.

Specifically for UK Residents:
If you’re residing in the UK, the Montenegrin Embassy in London can provide guidance regarding the type of visa you might require before your journey to Montenegro.

Extension of Stay:
Should you decide to extend your time in Montenegro, you must initiate the application process for a temporary residence permit from the Montenegrin Ministry of Interior Affairs. It’s recommended to commence this process no later than one week before the 90-day period elapses.

UK BRP Holders

If you’re a UK resident and you’re traveling to Montenegro, you can use your UK Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) as a travel document, as long as you have a valid passport. However, it’s important to note that your BRP must be valid for the entire duration of your stay in Montenegro. Additionally, you should carry proof of your accommodation and travel arrangements with you, as well as proof of sufficient funds for your stay.
