Montenegro residency

Montenegro - residency by real estate

Since 2015 Montenegro has implemented a law, which allows foreigners to buy real estate. Foreigners can buy residential and commercial space and obtain the right to the temporary residence on the basis of real estate ownership.

Benefits of residence in Montenegro

  • Simple procedure for obtaining
  • No minimum investment requirements for real estate
  • No Restrictions on international buyers of property
  • Only 40 days for authorities to approve residency 
  • Permanent residency after 5 years
  • Citizenship after 5 years of having a permanent residency


When purchasing real estate, in order to obtain the right for residence, Montenegro does not require you to meet any other requirements except to be the owner of the property. 

This means that:

  1. The price of the property is not specified– You can buy a property for only a few thousand euros or dollars and still get the right to apply.
  2. Property location is not specified-The location of the property is not determined, which gives you the opportunity to choose the property you like, within the territory of Montenegro.
  3. Number of property owners is not determent– The number of property owners is not specified, which means that in case you want to become a resident of Montenegro together with family members or with a friend, you can do it together and thus reduce time and costs than when you do it separately.

How it works

The whole process consists of two basic phases. The first phase is finding the property and checking the documents related to it, while the second phase is the process of submitting the residency. If you have already found or own a property, the process will be half as short and you can expect the documentation to be submitted for consideration in just a few days.
