Montenegro Citizenship by Investment

A multicultural country with a mild climate and a beautiful landscape

Montenegro offers political and economic stability and a business-oriented government.

Invest in the citizenship of a country that is an official EU candidate country

The Montenegrin Citizenship-by-Investment Program was launched to attract more foreign direct investment and increase economic activity in the country.

Applicants to this program are required to make some economic contribution to Montenegrin society through an investment in an approved real estate development project. A capital contribution to a government-designated development fund is also required. In return, after a thorough vetting procedure by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, applicants are given the possibility to apply for the Montenegrin citizenship. Investors can also apply for citizenship for family members, which should make the Montenegrin Citizenship-by-Investment program even more attractive.
