New measures for the arrival of foreign vessels in Montenegrin marinas

Considering that the epidemiological situation caused by COVID-19 is stable in Montenegro, the Government of Montenegro has agreed to further loosen the measures in the field of nautical tourism.

Namely, from 05.05.2020. the mandatory crew quarantine has been reduced from 28 days to 14 days. 

For all vessels entering the Montenegrin territorial waters (except vessels arriving for fuel supply), a separate section has been designated and equipped where the vessels will dock during the fourteen-day quarantine.

During quarantine, food and beverage supply, grey and black water pump out, connection to water, electricity as well as wi-fi will be provided. The crew aboard shall not leave the ship without the permission of the authority.

An additional benefit is the ability to perform crew shifts in Montenegro. Crews boarding the ship must quarantine for 14 days before arriving to the vessel.

Documentation must be sent to Porto Montenegeo at least 24hrs prior to arrival:

  • Yacht Registration
  • Crew list
  • Copies of all crew passports

Upon arrival in the territorial waters of Montenegro, it is necessary that you have all the required documentation:

  • Yacht Registration;
  • Tender documents (in case you want to include it in the vignette and if covered by insurance);
  • Yacht insurance to third parties (minimum 800.000,00 €);
  • Crew list or crew documents;
  • Captain license;
  • Notarized authorization for captain from owner or owning company.

Vessels arriving in Montenegro only for the purpose of supplying fuel shall be obliged to leave the territorial waters of Montenegro after supply in the shortest possible period of time. Tax-free diesel fuel is available at: Port of Bar, Marina Bar and Porto Montenegro. By standard retail prices of fuel, you can supply your vessel in Port of Kotor, Marina Kotor and Dukley Marina Budva.
