The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro published the law that provides new living conditions and accommodations for foreigners.

In addition to the traditional grounds for granting a residence permit in Montenegro (i.e., family reunification, education, medical treatment, etc.), Article 36 provides for the possibility of granting a residence permit for property owners in the country. Article 51 specifies that innovation and explains how to get a residence permit in the republic of Montenegro.

A residence permit will be issued to an alien who fulfills the conditions set out in Article 37 of this law, and as a confirmation and proof of the validity of the request, will provide a Certificate of Title, which confirms the ownership right to real estate in Montenegro (there is no minimum value of a property).

The prerequisites are: the absence of a criminal record and proofs of the fact that the person does not represent a threat to the national security of Montenegro.
