238 Montenegrins renounced their citizenship
From the beginning of the year to the end of Oct., 238 individuals renounced their Montenegrin citizenship. From 2006, 2,784 Montenegrins have been released from their citizenship – the majority of them got it in 2018.
Tax for renouncing the citizenship amounts to 300 euro
A citizen of MNE has to pay an administrative tax for renouncing Montenegrin citizenship amounting to 300 euro, and only one tax is paid if the decision on the release from citizenship refers to acquiring, termination or determination of citizenship for family members – a spouse and unemployed children.
Renouncing MNE citizenship costs even more if the request is submitted via diplomatic and consular networks.
