Citizenship in Montenegro Through Investment

In 2018, the Montenegrin Government made a crucial decision, approving the parameters for bestowing citizenship via investment. Discus Holdings, a significant 50% shareholder in one of the three official agents authorised by the Montenegrin Government, manages applications for this initiative. To qualify, a key requirement is an investment in a state-sanctioned project.

The Advantages

Situated by the sea, Montenegro is a captivating European nation with plans to become a member of the European Union by 2025. As a steadfast member of both the United Nations and NATO, it continues to assert its position within the global community.
