Visa-Free Countries for Montenegro Passport holders

Anastasia Mizrakhina
23 September 2021

In recent years, Montenegro has been praised for its wild, unparalleled beauty and cultural diversity. This tiny Balkan nation along the Adriatic Sea, which is one of the warmest and cleanest, is home to rugged mountains, luxurious beaches, and charming medieval villages. What is more, much of Montenegro’s stunning natural beauty is in the mountains, and those areas of this beautiful country should not be missed!   

A special reference is made to an iconic Bay of Kotor. Gorgeous, breathtaking, majestic, divine. Whatever is your thesaurus, the mind-blowing beauty of the Kotor Bay will leave you struggling for superlatives. This cobalt cove manages to defy geographic description. A big number of ultra-high-net-worth individuals are attracted here by absolute security, projects with the most profitable opportunities, and much more. 

The Porto Montenegro superyacht marina has quickly become a separate luxury town. This helps to attract many visitors, which positively affects the country’s economy and the development.
