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, VISA Application Guides One Comment

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS IN APPLYING FOR A TOURIST VISA TO MONTENEGRO

1. How long does it take for the visa to be processed? 

It takes approximately 3 weeks so I suggest you apply at least 4 weeks before your intended flight. 

2. There’s a Montenegro Consul Office in the Philippines! Why can’t I apply there? 

This is only a Consul Office and they do not process visa applications but they’re very eager to assist Visa Applicants. In fact, this is how we found out about this process! The best option for Filipinos is to apply through the Serbian Embassy in Indonesia. 

3. Are there any other options? 

Sure! You can apply for a Schengen Visa, United States of America Visa, or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, or Ireland Tourist Visa. 

4. What if I have incomplete documents? 

Then your visa application will not be processed. 

5. Will I get a refund in case I don’t get my visa? 

No. There’s absolutely no refund. 

6. Why are we applying at the Serbian Embassy and not at the Embassy of Montenegro?

I think there’s a bilateral agreement between them as they have the same language and Montenegro used to be part of Serbia. 

7. What happens if my visa is approved? 

You’ll have to send your passport to the Embassy which will be sent back to you with your visa via DHL. You’ll also have to pay 35 USD for the DHL Fee.
