Montenegro Coronavirus Rules for Travel to Montenegro

Montenegro is currently open to all travellers, regardless of vaccination status. As of March 11 2022, you don't need to to show any proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter Montenegro.

This rule is always subject to change, so you should check the latest information about travelling to Montenegro on the Montenegrin covid website (unfortunately it's only available in Montenegrin, but you can use Google translate to translate the page).

You'll still need to check general entry rules and visa requirements for Montenegro. Many nationalities can enter Montenegro without having to apply for a visa. You can find out more about entry requirements to Montenegro on this page.

Citizenship vs Residency

There has been some confusion about residency vs citizenship and which is valid. The Montenegrin official stance is:

“Upon entry, the country of which the person is a resident is observed, not the country of which the person is a national if it is not the same country. For example: a citizen of a country off the list with a regular residence in the country on the list is treated as a citizen of the country on the list because he or she is a resident of the country on the list.”

Travel to Montenegro VIA Croatia

Since Montenegro is very close to Croatia and it’s only a 20 minute drive from Dubrovnik Airport (Čilipi Airport) to the border, flying into Dubrovnik, hiring a car and driving across is a popular way to get here.

To do this you’ll need to satisfy Croatian entry requirements as well as Montenegrin ones.

Croatian Entry Requirements

You’ll also need to fulfil Croatian entry requirements. Like Montenegro, Croatia has dropped all entry restrictions such as negative tests and covid passes. Requirements such as visas remain the same as before the COVID-19 pandemic started.

As always, this is subject to change. You can find current entry requirements on the Croatian travel website here.


Safety Measures in Montenegro

Montenegro still has general health measures in place, which currently include mask mandates in enclosed spaces and social distancing. 

Masks

Masks are compulsory indoors. This is enforced with hefty fines both on businesses and individuals. The exceptions are on beaches, in national parks and for children under seven. If you travel on a bus or in a taxi you must wear a mask.

Social Distancing

Social distancing of 2m and there are limits to the maximum number of people allowed in a space, for example, one person per 10m2 in shops and gyms.

Disinfectant

Businesses must provide hand sanitiser for employees and customers and you’ll find it almost everywhere.

Restaurants, Beaches and Bars

  • All nightclubs in Montenegro are open 
  • Restaurants and cafes can be open between 6am and 1am

More Precautions

  • Gatherings are limited to 100 people in public indoor spaces
  • Gatherings over over 100 people are permitted in private spaces provided there is at least 10 square metres per person
