Before you arrive
Here is all the information you should be aware of before your arrival onboard
EU citizens require a valid full passport, visas are not required for travel to Montenegro. If you do not have valid documents you will not be able to travel. Montenegrin law requires all passport holders from the United Kingdom have at least three months until expiry at the date of exiting Montenegro. Please ensure you have sufficient validity on your passports. Guests from outside the United Kingdom should check with a local Montenegrin embassy to determine the minimum validity on passports required. The carrier may be subject to a fine if you try to travel without the correct documentation and we reserve the right to recover any such charge from the passenger. For citizens of other countries, up to date information on passport, visa and health requirements should be obtained from the Montenegro Embassy.
We advise all clients to ensure they have adequate travel insurance for their holiday in Montenegro and cover them adequately for a gulet cruise holiday.
Health and Wellbeing while in Montenegro
Montenegro is a hot country during the summer months and you must keep yourself properly hydrated to avoid illness. Whilst most tap water is safe to drink we advise our guests to drink bottled water while in Montenegro to avoid a tummy bug. As with most hot country, there are lots of insects, most are completely harmless, you may wish to purchase mosquito repellent, which can be bought at the many local chemists. If you do become ill our representative can arrange for you to visit a local doctor.
