Last Chance to Apply for Montenegro Citizenship Program

March 22, 2021

Recently, the government of Montenegro decided to stop granting Montenegro citizenship to wealthy foreign investors. The main reason for this decision is that the European Union, which Montenegro wants to join, does not approve the program. The citizenship program is expected to last until the end of the year, which means that now is the perfect time to apply.

Being a Balkan country, Montenegro is known for its beaches along Adriatic Coastline, magnificent mountains, and medieval villages. Along 293 kilometers of coastline, the country has more than 115 beaches, coastal churches, and national parks which are popular among tourists. At the moment, Montenegro is not part of the EU, however, it is located geographically in Europe and is striving to meet the EU requirements for accession, which is expected by 2025.
