 Montenegro closes the border with Albania. The Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs announces that the Operational Crisis Unit of the Government of Montenegro has decided today to review the list of countries that will be allowed to enter its territory in the framework of the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

Given the growing number of active infected citizens in our country, which currently exceeds 700 (a limit previously set by Montenegrin authorities and exceeds 25 infected per 100,000 inhabitants), Montenegrin authorities have decided to close the land borders with Albania and allow the entry of transit into Montenegrin territory only for citizens who present at the border the negative testing document of COVID-19, made within 48 hours.

Passengers who have an essential function/need are excluded from this restriction, such as:

- Health professionals, medical researchers;

- Personnel engaged in the transport of goods and any other transport personnel;

- Diplomats, the staff of international organizations, military personnel and humanitarian aid workers in the exercise of their functions;

- Special categories of passengers in transit;

- Persons in need of international protection in Montenegro, or for other humanitarian reasons.

This regime starts on Sunday midnight, June 21, 2020, and is valid until a second decision of the Crisis Operational Unit in Podgorica.
