Montenegro Citizenship

In July 2018, the government of Montenegro announced the launch of the country’s citizenship by investment program. 

Investors pass Due Diligence, make a non-refundable contribution to a government fund, and buy a share in a government-approved real estate project — a resort or hotel. In return, the applicants and their family members get Montenegro citizenship.

Investors don’t have to take language proficiency tests and history, and they do not have to live in Montenegro.
