Montenegro - a country open to stay and does not impose special requirements for tourists. Below we look at the main nuances of visa-free entry, talk about obtaining a visa to Montenegro, and also consider the features of the mandatory registration in this country.
Visa-free entry for tourists to Montenegro
In 2018, as before, Russians do not need to get a visa to Montenegro. Any citizen of Russia can stay in the territory of this European country for 90 days without having the appropriate stamp in the passport. The same applies to residents of Ukraine. Belarusian citizens who do not have a visa are allowed to stay in Montenegro for no more than 30 days. Visa-free entry for citizens of Kazakhstan is allowed in the summer. Residents of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania can also travel to Montenegro without a visa.
To cross the border, citizens of CIS countries need only a passport. Border guards are rarely interested in the presence of tourist vouchers and return tickets from Russians who arrive in Montenegro for a period of less than 90 days. If three months of rest you will be enough, you will still have to issue a visa.
VISA NOT NEEDED !!!

2. A copy of the first page of the passport.
3. Application form filled out (in English or Russian), and also signed by the tourist personally. It must contain his contact details.
4. Application for a visa. It indicates the purpose and duration of stay in the country, the address of residence, put the current date and signature.
5. Certificate of employment or bank statement. The amount required for confirmation is 20 euros per day per tourist.

Registration of tourists in Montenegro
Every tourist, regardless of the duration of his stay in a foreign country, is obliged to receive registration in Montenegro. This is done in one of two ways:
- when buying a package tour, documents for registration are issued by the tour operator;
- when traveling independently, the document is issued by the tourist.
Registration must be made no later than a day after arrival in the country. This is done either in the police or in the representative office of the Tourist Organization of Montenegro. Sometimes hotel administrators themselves register guests, saving them from unnecessary trouble.
It is important to remember that registration is a paid procedure. Its cost varies from 0.4 to 1 euro per day.
