From next Tuesday, people coming to Montenegro should present a certificate of vaccination against COVID-19, a history of infection, or a negative PCR test or rapid antigen test. Lack of at least one of the documents will result in a 14-day isolation.
The information about the changes for people traveling to Montenegro was provided by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Podgorica. As explained, “due to the drastically worsening epidemic situation”, the Montenegrin government decided to introduce additional restrictions from August 24.
Montenegro – entry rules
As we read in the release, foreigners will be able to enter Montenegro only if they have one of the following documents:
– certificate of full vaccination against COVID-19 or certificate of single dose vaccination against COVID-19,
– having a negative PCR test for COVID-19, not older than 72 hours,
– a certificate that the person has undergone COVID-19, with no less than 14 days and no more than 180 days have passed since the positive PCR test or rapid antigen test,
– having a negative COVID-19 antigen rapid test that is not older than 48 hours.
People who do not have any of the above documents will be referred for a 14-day self-isolation, which can be completed after the sixth day of entry to Montenegro. The condition will be to obtain a negative PCR test result.
From June 5, entry to Montenegro for citizens of the Republic of Poland (and other EU countries) was possible without the need to show documents confirming the test or vaccination for coronavirus.
Representatives of the Polish embassy in Podgorica appeal for caution and caution when traveling to Montenegro. They recalled that this country is not a member of the European Union, therefore – as indicated – “many procedures are more complicated”. This also applies to possible treatment.
