Montenegro Citizenship By Investment
The Montenegro citizenship by investment programme was launched in 2019. Applicants can apply by investing in one of several government approved real estate development projects. The investment element range from €250,000 in the northern and central region to €450,000 in the coastal region. Additional application and due diligence fees apply.
Montenegrin citizenship by investment and a second passport from a European nation is an attractive option for many of our clients. However it must be noted that although geographically in Europe Montenegro is not part of the EU. Although it is striving to meet the EU requirements for accession it is not expected until at least 2025.
Citizenship of an EU country carries a large premium in the market because of the settlement rights allowing citizens of any EU country to live anywhere within the EU. Obtaining citizenship in Montenegro at this stage for such a purpose would be speculative as to timescale and far from certain.
However Montenegrin passport holders do enjoy visa free travel to over 125 countries worldwide although this, and more, can already be achieved at far lower cost with one of the five Caribbean programmes.
