NKT Mitigates the conditions on entry to Montenegro from the surrounding countries
The National Coordination Body for Infectious Diseases (NKT) decided tonight, at the Public Health Institute of Montenegro's suggestion, to mitigate the conditions on entry to Montenegro for residents of the region and our citizens who briefly travel to one of the neighboring countries.
From countries in the region with negative PCR, negative IgM test or positive IgG test
As before, it is possible to enter Montenegro without additional conditions for residents of countries on the "green list." Residents of states on the "yellow list" may enter Montenegro with a positive result of a serological test - IgG antibodies issued from a registered laboratory and not older than 30 days.
Residents of all countries from the "yellow list" can also enter Montenegro with a negative result of the serological test for IgM antibodies or a negative PCR test issued by a registered laboratory not older than 72 hours. The condition is that the person did not stay in one of the countries from the "red list" in 15 days before entering Montenegro, i.e., in one of the countries from which entry into Montenegro is not allowed.
Facilities for Montenegrin residents who travel briefly to countries in the region
The entry of Montenegrin residents - citizens of Montenegro and foreigners, permanently or temporarily residing in our country - from the region's countries is facilitated if they have stayed in those countries for up to 48 hours.
Upon their return to Montenegro, these persons are prescribed a health supervision measure, which includes free movement, but daily monitoring of symptoms and reporting to the competent doctor until the expiration of the Decision, issued by the Sanitary Inspection upon return.
It is also possible for Montenegrin residents to travel to countries from the "red list" of the Public Health Institute, with the provision that these persons are prescribed a quarantine or self-isolation measure upon their return.
New measures will enter into force on the day of their publication in the Official Gazette of Montenegro, expected tonight.
