How to get a residence permit in Montenegro.
Russians in Montenegro are attracted by the mild Balkan climate and visa-free entry for 30 days. For tourists, here is a paradise: the service is already European, and the prices are & # 8211; not yet. But Montenegro is actively preparing to become a member of the European Union and changes its legislation. There is news for those who wish to obtain a residence permit (residence permit) in Montenegro.
A new law has been adopted.
From April 1, the law on foreigners will work: it contains all the grounds on which citizens of other states can obtain a temporary or permanent residence permit.
The main legislative change is the opportunity to obtain residence permits in Montenegro when buying real estate.
Previously, the owners of houses in Montenegro could live on the Balkan coast for no more than three months for half a year. Now they will be able to get a residence permit (borawak) for a whole year and simply extend it. What should be the minimum cost of real estate, is still unknown. However, after living for as long as you like on such a basis, you will not get a permanent residence permit in Montenegro.
Who has the right to temporary residence.
In addition to owning real estate, there are several other reasons for obtaining residence permit in Montenegro:
family reunification; training; labor activity; scientific activity; treatment; humanitarian causes.
A residence permit can be issued to family members of the person who has already received it. There is an exception: if a residence permit is issued to a seasonal worker, then his family can not be transported to Montenegro.
If you have already established a family in Russia, are healthy and do not engage in science, then the appropriate option for you is one – conducting work. Under such a basis, a single “two in one” document – a residence permit and a job containing biometric data – will now be issued. To hire a foreigner in Montenegro is not easy. The employer needs to prove to the authorities that issue work permits that you are a unique specialist and that no one from your local population claims to be in your place.
In addition, to find out if you have a ban on leaving, will help a proven and high-quality service of our partners, which will provide you with information on the existence of debts for loans, fines, maintenance, utilities and others, as well as assess the likelihood of banning flights abroad.
But to conduct business there are no restrictions.
Your business is the most common way of immigration to Montenegro.
Formalities take a little time, the authorized capital for the company’s opening is the smallest in Europe – one euro. At the same time, it is enough to have an amount of 300 euros on the account. The most popular tourist destination and public catering. You get a borawak for six months and extend it until you get bored. At the same time, you are not obliged to work for your company of Montenegrin citizens.
If you still received a residence permit as a relative of a citizen or permanent resident of Montenegro, you have the right to work without special permission.
Documents for registration.
So, you have an important reason for immigration to Montenegro. In addition, you will need:
sufficient amount of funds; information on the absence of a criminal record both in Russia and Montenegro; documents for housing in property or in rent; medical insurance; documents on education; health certificate.
Exact lists of documents will be known when the law begins to work.
Rules of submission.
The application for residence permits must be submitted in person: a signature sample, a photograph and fingerprints are taken. From the delivery of biometric data, children under 12 years of age are released. To extend the permit, you need to contact the police one month before the end of the validity period of the borawak.
When five years have elapsed since the issuance of the first permit, the procedure will have to be retried, including the delivery of biometric data. The fee is 350 euros for the first registration and 300 euros for all subsequent ones.
How not to lose residence permit.
If you have left Montenegro without a request for more than a month, your permission may be revoked. To prevent this from happening, you need to notify the internal affairs agencies of the need to leave. And then for 90 days you can leave Montenegro without harming your status.
How to get permanent residence.
A permanent residence permit can be issued to foreigners who have lived in the country for five years. A number of conditions must be fulfilled. Such grounds for temporary residence as the availability of real estate, training or seasonal work do not give the right to obtain permanent residence in Montenegro.
Accommodation in the country must be continuous: you can leave for no more than 10 months in aggregate or for 6 consecutive months in a five-year period.
Montenegro wants to join the European Union, but is in no hurry to limit the influx of Russian tourists and entrepreneurs. Sooner or later, she will have to do it, because it is unlikely that Europe likes that Russia has such a large number of Russian capital. Immigrants in Montenegro have all chances to become permanent residents of the European Union, but their presence is clearly embarrassing to those who make political decisions in Europe.
