BORDER CROSSING AT UNOFFICIAL BORDER CROSSING POINTS
If you are planning a mountaineering tour that involves crossing the border at unofficial crossing points (for example, in Prokletije, Hajla, Ljubišnja, Kamena Gora, Maglic, Orjen...) you have to comply with the legal procedure.
When planning the exit from Montenegro beyond the border crossing points, make a request to the Border Police Officer responsible for the district (contact in the attachment) and they will provide you with timely feedback. The competent Border Police Unit will, in cooperation with the neighboring state border police, provide all the necessary conditions for your unhindered and safe crossing and inform you thereof.
The application can be submitted for groups as well as for individual border crossings.
If you are not sure which district belongs to the area you are applying for, please send your request by mail to:
In addition to the completed form, a scanned travel document should also be sent by mail.
