Citizens of Montenegro can travel visa free to the EU, while Montenegrin students, lecturers and scientists have access to numerous EU-funded travel, study and research opportunities. This is a significant contribution to the higher quality of life of Montenegrin citizens while their country continues progressing towards EU accession.

VISA Regime

Visa-free travel for citizens of Montenegro has been in place since December 2009. The new visa free regime applies to all holders of biometric passports, who can travel to the Schengen area for up to 90 days per six-month period.

Study Programmes

Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. Between 2014 and 2020, it provided opportunities for four million people to study, train and gain life experience abroad.

Erasmus+ replaces a number of older programmes, including an international exchange programme called Erasmus Mundus.

See the Erasmus+ web portal’s Resources section for information about linguistic support, documents for applicants and the management of proposals.
