Entry stamp

Visitors to Montenegro must obtain a visa from one of the Montenegrin diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. Visa policy is regulated by Regulation on Visa Regime Act.[1] Where there are no diplomatic or consular representations of Montenegro, visa requiring foreigners may obtain them from (depending on the country) diplomatic or consular representations of Serbia, Bulgaria and Croatia.

The visa policy of Montenegro is similar to the visa policy of the Schengen Area. It grants 90-day visa-free entry to all Schengen Annex II nationalities, except for Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu. It also grants visa-free entry to nationals of several additional countries – Azerbaijan, Belarus, Cuba, Ecuador, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Qatar, Russia, and Turkey.

Visitors must hold passports that are valid for at least 3 months beyond the period of intended stay.
