How To Apply for Montenegro Visa for Philippines Passport Holders – Tourist Visa for Filipinos

By Kach Umandap - Howe November 18th, 2019 Posted in Destination, Europe Travel Blog, Travel Blog, VISA Application Guides 3 Comments

Montenegro is one of our favorite countries in Europe, especially the City of Herceg Novi which I’ve visited thrice already. More than the delicious food, the scenic view of the Bay of Kotor (which is a sailing haven), and the very warm people that we’ve met, what we love about this country is that it is a lot cheaper compared to the rest of Europe.

Traveling to Europe doesn’t have to cost you all your savings (and even more). Just choose which countries to visit and I’m sure your trip will be as equally as memorable! I always tell newbie and not-so-broke travelers who are dying to see Europe visit this country.

A one-way ticket using Local Transportation would be roughly around 0.90€, one pint of local beer would only be around 1.85€, and a meal at a cheap restaurant is just 5€.

You can even get a big slice of pizza or a burger for just 2€ but buying Asian food ingredients are expensive. That’s how cheap it is and for Filipinos, we need a visa to visit this country.
