Since January 13, the Montenegrin authorities have again allowed unvaccinated tourists to enter the country – instead of a vaccination certificate, they can present three other documents to choose from. This was reported by the Minister of Health of the Republic Elena Borovinich-Boyovich, writes CDM.
Chapter Ministry of Health Montenegro said that previously introduced measures that prohibited unvaccinated travelers from entering the country have yielded results. Now the authorities of a popular European country among tourists have decided to ease restrictions: from January 13, tourists can come to the republic upon presentation of one of four documents to choose from.
Thus, tourists can enter with a vaccination certificate (no more than six months should pass from the moment of receiving the last dose), a PCR test for a period of no more than 72 hours, an antigen express test done no later than 48 hours before the trip. Travelers who have had a coronavirus infection are also allowed to enter – for this they will need a positive test for COVID-19, performed more than 10 days ago, but not older than six months.
It is noted that the new rules will operate over the next seven days, from 13 to 19 January. After that, the country’s authorities will again decide on the conditions for crossing the borders for tourists.
Earlier in December 2021 reportedthat the Montenegrin authorities decided to ban unvaccinated foreign tourists from entering the country from 2 to 12 January. Measures were taken in connection with the emergence of a new omicron strain of the coronavirus.
