While you are staying in Montenegro you are obliged to register your arrival and departure.

If you are staying in a hotel, private accommodation, or other hospitality facility, your host must register your stay for you within 12 hours of your arrival and also register when you are about to leave.

If you are a foreign citizen and are staying in Montenegro as a tourist, but are not using the services of rented accommodation, you may register your stay with a local tourist organisation or with the police in the place where you are staying – the relevant local authorities – within 24 hours of your arrival.

If you are staying in more than one municipality in Montenegro, you must register your stay in every municipality where you remain for more than 24 hours.

You may be required to produce your registration documentation for checking!


If you are planning a mountaineering tour which includes crossing the border away from official border crossings (e.g. in the Prokletije Mountains, Hajla, Ljubišnja, Kamena Gora, Maglić, Orjen, etc.) you must follow the legal procedure.

It is essential to apply to cross the border away from an official border crossing at the relevant institution, i.e. the border police of the country which you are leaving. The border police of the country you are leaving will take all the necessary measures to guarantee that you can leave without hindrance.

When planning to leave Montenegro away from an official border crossing, you must submit an application form to the office of the border police which is responsible for that region (contact details are attached) and they will respond in a timely way with the information you need. The responsible organisational unit of the border police will, in cooperation with the border police of the neighbouring country, provide you with all the necessary services so that you can cross the border without hindrance and in safety, and will inform you about this.

You can apply for group and individual crossings of the border.

If you are unsure which region the municipality belongs to which you should apply to, please send an inquiry via e-mail to: or

Along with the filled-in form you must send a scan of your travel document, either via e-mail or fax.
