Marriage in Montenegro
American citizens wishing to get married in Montenegro should contact the Office of the Civil Registry of the Municipality in which they wish to get married in order to obtain information regarding all necessary documentation.
The Office of the Civil Registry in Montenegro usually requires a document that shows that an American citizen is free to marry in order to allow him or her to get married in Montenegro to a Montenegrin citizen. Because no such document is issued in the United States, American citizens who wish to get married in Montenegro should make an appointment with our Consular Section in Podgorica to complete the "Free to Marry" statement and have it notarized by a Consular Officer before they get married.
Please see current Consular Fees and methods of payment at Immigrant Visa for the Spouse or Fiancé of a U.S. Citizen.
Please note that Immigrant Visas for Montenegrin citizens are currently being processed in our Consular Section in Belgrade, Serbia.
In order for us to best serve you, please send an e-mail to PodgoricaACS@state.gov for additional information or to schedule an appointment.
