Getting to the Embassy
There is no public parking space within the Embassy. You can park in the streets nearby, where allowed.
Unfortunately, there is no public transport in the vicinity of the Embassy.
Taxis are widely available in Podgorica. They can be ordered by telephone or hailed on the street. Finding one at any time is not usually a problem, unless it is raining. Take a taxi and ask to be dropped off at ‘Britanska ambasada, Ulcinjska osam’.
Due to the global threat currently posed by terrorism, and the targeting of Embassies, we do our utmost to ensure a safe and secure environment for your visit.

The security measures in place are for the benefit of all visitors and staff. Visitors to our office will have to go through the security checkpoint at the entrance.
