As of July 7, everyone traveling to Montenegro from Serbia will previously have to obtain an approval from the Montenegrin Embassy in Belgrade and will be quarantined in state facilities immediately upon arrival.
Until now, Montenegrin and foreign nationals with permanent residence arriving from Serbia faced either self-isolation or quarantine.
Since March 15, Montenegro’s entry ban has been in place on Serbian nationals.
BETA has learned that Montenegro’s and foreign nationals with permanent residence traveling from Serbia to Montenegro first have to report to the Montenegrin Embassy in Belgrade and get an entry approval. Travels will be organized in the so-called “convoys” on the days to be determined by the Embassy, which will be entering Montenegro at the Dobrakovo border crossing, where travelers will be issued an official paper and deployed to quarantine.
Due to limited quarantine capacities, only a specific number of people with the Embassy’s approval will be entering Montenegro in a single day.
Until now, it was up to sanitary health inspectors at border crossings to decide whether a traveler would be subject to self-isolation or quarantine. Inspectors would also take into count medical documentation stating that a person could not be quarantined or a negative coronavirus test.
