June 12, 2020 - With changes to the decision on the amount and manner of calculation and payment of fees for the use of national parks, adopted by the Government of Montenegro yesterday, children up to the age of 15 will now be able to enter national parks in our country free of charge.
Until now, children under the age of 12 were not required to pay an entry fees to visit national parks.
- Amendments to the decision were made following the demand for specific services in national parks. There was a need to abolish and reduce the prices of particular fees. Tickets to the Durmitor National Park for three, seven, and 15 days and tickets to all national parks for ten days were cancelled because the analyzes showed little interest in those tickets - the Government stated.
Fees for commercial fishing have also been abolished following a new decision on the cost of issuing a license for commercial fisheries and aquaculture.
- Annual ticket fees for all national parks are now 50 percent cheaper. Discounts have also been introduced for fees for sport fishing and sport fishing licenses for members of sport fishing associations, clubs, and societies - the Government said.
The new regulation was adopted at the request of commercial fishers from Skadar Lake and the National Parks of Montenegro to reduce the annual fee for commercial fishing by 50 percent and extend the validity of issued licenses to mitigate the consequences of the new coronavirus.
- National Parks of Montenegro are obliged to issue a 50 percent discount to all commercial fishermen who apply for a license to conduct commercial fishing on Skadar Lake from the date of adoption of the information. The fee reduction applies to all future annual licenses issued for commercial fishing valid until the end of this year - said the Government.
Commercial fishers from Skadar Lake, whose licenses were issued on March 23 and who paid the fishing permissions in full, will have their licenses extended for another year free of charge. For fishing licenses that were valid on March 20 or paid from January 1 to May 1, the validity is extended until September 1 without an additional fee.
