Montenegro’s Digital Nomad Visa Scheme Is Imminently Awaiting Final Approval
Much like Spain, Croatia, Portugal & other countries throughout Europe, there is talk of Montenegro introducing a Digital Nomad Visa imminently in order to attract top digital talent to the country on a more permanent basis. If approved by the government, the scheme could be a game changer for those wishing to live & work in Montenegro, without having to apply via the current visa rules & regulations.
The scheme will be open to anyone outside of the EU (so UK Citizens will be allowed to apply) and anyone wishing to qualify for the scheme must be able to show that they are employed by or have a contract with a company located outside of Montenegro. Additionally applicants, for now, must also be able to prove they have a valid passport with at least 6 months validity, have adequate travel insurance, proof of income (as you won’t be eligible for state benefits), hold a return ticket or onward ticket, have a valid email address and present proof of accommodation in Montenegro.
In all likelihood there will also be a small fee for the Digital Nomad visa, which will probably be around €25, although that could change in the future, once the scheme has been fully approved. The hope is that it will be signed off this year, and the programme will start the application process by 2025.
A few benefits of the programme include a 2-year visa permit after which time you could apply for a possible extension of another two years + during the time you are in Montenegro and hold the Digital Nomad Visa there will be no income tax. Any spouse or dependants you have will also be able to join you in Montenegro once the visa has been approved, which could be as little as 30 days.
Montenegro is consistently appearing as one of the best countries to visit globally, and with so much to see and do here, whilst enjoying a temperate climate throughout the year, it would be the perfect place in which to live and work as a Digital Nomad. Very affordable, given the current cost of living crises, it also offers historic towns, amazing landscapes, gorgeous beaches and turquoise seas. There’s Kotor Old Town, the glitz and glamour of Budva & Portonovi Marina, Durmitor National Park, Skadar Lake & Lustica Bay which will soon be home to Montenegro’s first ever 18 hole golf course.
Stay tuned for further information on the Digital Nomad Visa & contact CMM Group Montenegro if you have any further questions on the visa process, Property for Sale or Property for Rent.
In period May-August 2022 we sold our flats in St-Petersburg Russia and have bought two ones here in Montenegro, Becici. We decided to move here and make new home and business with my husband. Our agent Milica Zugic is really became our angel - provider here in Montenegro. She is very reliable, responsible , professional employee of CMM Budva department. She has developed intuition and found very fast necessary properties which we needed. Also she helped us to speed up the process of registration documents in MUP.( list nepokretnosti, etc). She was our real provider here. Very appreciated her and all staff of Budva department for there assistance. Separately to lawyer Ivan and his legal team. Very recommended choose Milica Zugic as real estate manager when you search for assistant in this complicated and important field as buying property in Montenegro.

At the beginning of April 2022, our family living in Prague bought a house in Sutomore with the assistance of your company.
Let me express my gratitude to the management of your company for the service provided, and especially to your employees - Anastasia Zeyak, Alexei Grachev and Elena Bozhovich for their attention, patience and even care for the whole time of buying real estate and the services provided after the purchase.
I would really like all companies to work with the same quality of service. After coming into contact with this kind of attitude towards the client, all our environment, if necessary, will refer to your company only.
With gratitude on behalf of our family.

Based on my experience with CMM in Budva, Montenegro, I can say that they are reliable, fast, and they deliver what they promise. They take really good care of their clients. For instance, I was offered a lift from the airport, and they would take me back and forth from Tivat to Budva and Becici to see various properties. They would answer all of my questions and respond promptly. They have an excellent team: Katarina, Alexander, Natasha, Martin and some other guys whose names I don’t remember. Katarina, my wonderful agent, went to every length to help me find a perfect home. Unfortunately, my situation changed and I had to postpone my relocation to Montenegro.
I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a property in Montenegro.

We were introduced to CMM by friends who had already done research on Montenegro and CMM. We purchased our apartment in Dobrota, just outside Kotor, all remotely from South Africa, during the lockdown. Everything was seamless without any problems at all. All the CMM departments work together well from the sales team, head office, legal, interior design and rental department. Every detail was well communicated with an abundance of zoom meetings, videos, emails etc
We are thrilled with the outcome and enjoyed working with the CMM team. They were incredibly professional.
After sales service is also excellent as we move into the rental phase of the apartment and over all management of the apartment including maintenance.
We have been directly and indirectly involved with many houses/apartments all over the world and this was the up there with the best service we have received.
Thanks to everyone we dealt with at CMM it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all. We look forward too many happy years working with you on our rental.

Last year we decided to find a new home close to the sea. It was quite difficult in the beginning to make the right choice. Once we found CMM Company was a great luck! We immediately received detailed consultation on the country and purchase opportunities. Being attracted by Kotor - one of the most amazing parts of the coast, we decided to take a family trip and maybe make our dream of new home come true. As just discoverers of Montenegro, we were accepted like at home which was a one more pleasant surprise. The most important, we received all detailed information about country regions and procedure of buying property during the first few days. And how beautiful the car journeys were! Difficult choice, but when you find the home you want you can't refuse it. CMM did best to help us with this finding! All the purchase procedure passed well with CMM professional work! Now we are happy owners of a wonderful house with a Kotor bay view, being perfectly served by CMM Management company (of course, we've chosen CMM as professional house manager). Hope our friends and relatives would also move to Montenegro with the CMM help soon !!!
