Open Travel Agency in Montenegro

Montenegro has 300 km of coastline and beautiful mountains located in the north side of the country. These attract numerous visitors from all over the world every year, the tourism industry accounting for 20% of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product). The tourism in Montenegro is concentrated on resorts and hotels along the coast. The country is also developing a wider tourism industry which relies on rural and cultural tourism, as well as ecotourism. 

In this article, our company formation agents in Montenegro explain how to set up a travel agency in Montenegro.

What are the steps required to open a travel agency in Montenegro?

When opening a travel agency in Montenegro, investors must first decide which type of business structure they want to set up.

The most common kind of business vehicle in this jurisdiction is the limited liability company (D.O.O.). In order to open such a company in Montenegro, the following documents have to be obtained:

  • – the Articles of Association: a document which contains the company purpose and the duties and liabilities of its members;
  • – the structure of the business: the way in which the company is structured;
  • – a list of the founders and the Board Members: generally, these are the chief executive officer (CEO), the chief financial officer (CFO) or the executive vice president;
  • – other documents: our company registration advisors in Montenegro can provide further details on what these other documents consist of.

Investments in tourism can also be made under the Montenegro citizenship by investment scheme.
