ETIAS for Montenegrin Citizens

By 2021, travel from Montenegro to the Schengen Zone will require permission from the European Travel Information & Authorization System (ETIAS). This system is designed to screen travelers who do not need a visa to visit Europe, like those from Montenegro. It will not permit entry by dangerous people or those whose previous travels may have exposed them to a dangerous communicable disease.

Montenegrin citizens are eligible for ETIAS

The ETIAS Visa Waiver Application Process

Getting an ETIAS for Montenegrin citizens is quick and easy. Most of the time, the application for an ETIAS visa waiver for Europe only takes 10-15 minutes to complete. It is available online and the entire process is designed to take place electronically so that the traveler doesn’t have to visit an embassy or relinquish their passport in order to get permission to travel.

In order to complete the ETIAS visa waiver application, travelers will need: 

  • Their current, valid passport from CS. This also needs to be valid for at least 6 more months. If it isn’t, they should get a new passport before submitting the application for an ETIAS for citizens from Montenegro.
  • A valid email address. Applicants will receive all communication about their ETIAS visa waiver via email so they should plan to check this address regularly.
  • A credit card. This is for paying the ETIAS visa waiver application fee.

Applicants need to make sure that all their personal information on the application matches exactly what is on their passports. They will also be asked about their previous travels, their affiliations with certain groups, and any arrest or conviction history that they might have. 

It may take up to several weeks to process and approve an ETIAS visa waiver for Europe. Final confirmation will always be sent to the email address on record. Travelers do not need to print this but they may if it makes them feel better about their trip.

How to Travel on an ETIAS for Citizens of Montenegro

Visiting the Schengen Zone on an ETIAS visa waiver is easy. Citizens of Montenegro just need to scan their passports so officials can see that they have an approved ETIAS on file. Then they will be allowed not only to enter the Schengen Zone but to move about freely while they are there. They can prolong their visit for up to 90 days at a time. If they need to stay longer, they will have to get another type of travel permission.

Each visitor to Europe from CS will need their own ETIAS visa waiver. This includes both infants and small children, regardless of their age. However, parents can fill out the application for their children. 

The ETIAS for citizens from Montenegro and other countries that aren’t required to have a visa to enter the Schengen Zone will make things safer for everyone. It should lower the chances of a terrorist or another kind of attack and also those of catching a dangerous disease. Apply today to travel soon!
