Information on alternative measures for UK visa applicants in Montenegro

With the temporary closure of the Visa Application Centre in Podgorica, UKVI and their commercial partner Teleperformance have put in place alternative measures for people in Montenegro wishing to apply for UK Visas.

Customers who have appointments this week and next week in Podgorica can submit their applications in Tirana, Sarajevo or Belgrade, in person, without making a new appointment. Applicants should present their appointment letter, application form, passport and supporting documents. Staff at these centres will make special arrangements for customers who require their passports to travel back to Montenegro.

Details of opening hours/days:

Customers who have not yet made an application/appointment in Podgorica can make their application in Belgrade, Sarajevo or Tirana, but should apply as if resident is Albania, Serbia or Bosnia and Herzegovina on visa4uk website.

Teleperformance and UK Visas and Immigration apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to be able to reopen in Montenegro shortly.
