For savvy investors and successful families, Montenegro is the Mediterranean's best kept secret.
A stunning nation full of natural beauty and opportunity.
The sovereign state of Montenegro, nestled just south of Croatia, boasts breathtaking scenery, diverse landscapes and some of the most beautiful coastline in the Mediterranean.
Until recently, Montenegro was considered a hidden gem. But since gaining independence in 2006, the tourism industry has grown rapidly. It now accounts for roughly 20% of GDP, strengthening the economy and stabilising politics in the region. Montenegro’s economic success has caught the eye of European Union, and the nation is now an official candidate for EU member status.
The Montenegrin government is actively diversifying economic drivers in the country. As well as establishing the country as an elite tourist destination, Montenegro is set to become a net energy exporter, with an underwater cable to Italy just one of many planned energy infrastructure projects.
In introducing their Citizenship-by-Investment Programme, the Montenegrin government will generate investment to fast-track a number of luxury property developments. In return, investors will receive Montenegrin citizenship and a powerful passport that allows holders to travel visa-free to over 120 countries.
