Registering yourself with the Montenegrin authorities
We’re in Montenegro where you must register yourself within THREE days to the police authority (although you never see a policeman!)
After a lot of searching the internet, we found many convoluted and incorrect records of what to do, where to go & when to do it. So here is what WE did.
We will update this blog as we travel to different parts of Montenegro.

- We visited the tourist information in Budva to pick up a white slip of paper informing us how much we had to pay. We paid €1 per day per adult and €0.50 for a child over the age of 12. There is a paying car park (cash only) right next to the centre (it has a barrier) but parking on the street is free. Parking is a little haphazard and the streets are busy.
- We went to the post office to pay the tourist tax. He made us work out the maths and write down the amount for him. The total was €42 for a two week stay in Budva. You will need the full address of where you’re staying. We paid in cash. I didn’t see card facilities so don’t know if that’s an option. The queue in the post office was very long and we waited a good 20-30 minutes to be served. There is no air conditioning in the building and a bottle of water is advised.
- We then re-visited the tourist information with our pink slip as proof of payment and had our passports scanned.
We are moving to Kotor next, so update to follow.
