A Brief Introduction to Montenegro

Following the division of the Roman Empire some 1600 years ago, Montenegro has been a cultural and geographical gateway between East and West. Long considered the pearl of the Balkans, Montenegro’s coastline crams in some of Europe’s most spectacular seaside scenery. Mountains rise into the azure sky from clear waters that sparkle like diamonds in the dazzling sunlight. Ancient stone-wrought towns dot the mountainous landscape slope down, dipping gently into the water. In the summer, the air is suffused with the scent of fragrant herbs, conifers and flowers.

Montenegro’s natural beauty and rich culture are not the only reasons why the nation is attracting a growing interest for investment and development. The country’s move towards political independence, strategic geographical position, as well as its pending accession to the European Union have also influenced Montenegro to become central to some of the most important industries in the world. These combination of factors has resulted in one of the fastest growing economies in the Balkans, with Montenegro quickly becoming a key destination for investors seeking mobility and an increased quality of life.

The benefits of acquiring Montenegrin citizenship by investment is visa free travel to 122 countries worldwide. The country is set to accede to the European Union, meaning that there is prospective visa-free access to Europe’s Schengen Area. Montenegro also possesses an E-2 treaty with the United States of America, allowing passport holders to acquire long-term residential permits in the United States.
