Besides its well-functioning health system overall, the country has fully fledged public and private hospitals in every city. There are many public and private schools which have global reputation and opportunity.

Inviting investment opportunities

Montenegro adopted the Euro in 2001 and, since 2004, their economic growth is declared to be an average of 3.4%. With many investment opportunities, a low income tax rate of just 9% and many offers and low rate advantages, Montenegro is an exciting location for new investment companies. It is also worth noting that the investment advantages are applicable to all companies, whether owned by Montenegrin citizens or by foreigners.

Montenegro –vs – other European countries

Europe is considered by many to be a safe haven, for both families and investment, and in these troubled times, living in a Schengen state is very much sought after. However, living in a Schengen state is not so easy and many countries are asking for a minimum amount of real estate investment in order to take residency. At the time of writing, the most affordable investment needed to get a residence permit in one of the Schengen countries is €250,000. But, there is good news. As the candidate closest to taking EU membership, Montenegro offers an opportunity to take a residence permit without a minimum investment limit. The Residence permit also covers the applicants' spouse and children (under 18 years of age), so is a tangible and affordable route to European living.


The Tivat area of Montenegro has become one of the most popular destinations for high-profile tourists and celebrities, due to the ‘Monte Carlo’ feel, with exclusive shopping and the world famous marina “Porto Montenegro”, but this region is also popular with tourists from all walks of life, who are enchanted by the sleepy seaside villages and seduced by seaside restaurants serving fresh seafood, crisp salads and Montenegrin wines. Porto Montenegro is home to many luxury and super-yachts and is especially pretty at night, so an evening stroll along the waterfront and jetties will give you a peek at some of the best yachts in the world.

Kotor old town, now a combination of restaurants, shops and apartments is an ancient, fortified town that was first mentioned in 168 BC and was home to Ancient Romans. It is now UNESCO Heritage protected and is definitely a must-see during your stay.

Tivat International Airport (which has just opened a ‘temporary’ new terminal, pending construction of a permanent one, in order to cope with tourist demand), is the most popular of Montenegro’s 2 International airports, and is now capable of handling increased capacity from many European cities. Many low-cost airlines fly from most European capitals into Tivat and Turkey’s Pegasus Airlines is also planning to start direct flights from Istanbul to Tivat soon. The airport is just 8km from Kotor, so you can be relaxing with your favourite tipple, overlooking the sea, in less than an hour from landing. Other major tourist destinations are also very close to the airport, being just 30 minutes from Budva and 15 minutes from Lustica Peninsula's amazing sandy beaches.

With many massive infrastructure and hospitality improvement projects in the pipeline in this region, it’s easy to see why many of our investor clients prefer to buy here. Most of our projects are in the Kotor-Tivat region and our own project MON009 is just 15 minutes from Tivat airport

As a third alternative, Dubrovnik’s Čilipi International airport is also just an hour away from Kotor-Tivat.
