About the program
In July 2018, the Government of Montenegro announced the launch of the program “Citizenship of Montenegro for Investments”. The first applications for obtaining Montenegrin passports for investments began to be accepted from January 2019.
The program requires applicants to make a donation to the government fund and additionally purchase a property in Montenegro. In exchange, the applicants and their family members receive the citizenship of Montenegro – subject to a successful Due Diligence check.
At the same time, to get a Montenegro passport for investments you do not need to know the language or history of the state, and there are also no obligations to live in the country.
Please note: the program is designed for 3 years, and the number of applications is limited by 2,000 quotas.
