Opening an account
The financial regulator in Montenegro is the Central Bank of Montenegro – Centralna Banka Crne Gore. This body is responsible for issuing licenses for banking activities and monitoring compliance with the banking system’s rules.
Opening a Montenegro bank account is quite simple. This country has the easiest bank account registration procedure among all the Balkan states, making it a popular destination for immigration and business development.
In total, 15 banks are operating in the country, both local and foreign banks, that have opened branches in Montenegro. Even though Montenegro is not a member of the EU (but has had candidate status since 2008), the official currency here is the euro. This makes settlements with companies from European countries easier and more favorable. One client can open two accounts – local (for domestic settlements) and international. Individuals have the right to get a debit or credit bank card. There is a minimum balance requirement – the account must have at least 1000 EUR.
