The official currency in Montenegro is the euro (€) although Montenegro is still not a member state of the European Union. Montenegro is not in the Schengen Area, but a considerable number of countries are exempt from the visa requirement for stays up to 90 days. To check if you are exempt from the visa requirements please consult the Regulation on the visa regime. In case you are required to obtain a visa prior to your arrival to Montenegro, you will need to contact the nearest Embassy or consulate of Montenegro.
