Montenegro continues to provide asylum to Ukrainians staying in the country as refugees. In particular, the government has extended the temporary status for another year. We will tell you how to extend the asylum and what you need to do next.


How to extend temporary protection for Ukrainians in Montenegro: details


Within three weeks, from 21.02.2023 to 10.03.2023, all citizens of Ukraine and foreigners who have been granted temporary protection status in Montenegro must personally apply to the offices of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro (MUP) at their current place of residence to obtain a new temporary protection document, which will be valid until 11.03.2024


Please note! Applying at the place of your current residence means the community where you reside as of the date of application (you do not need to apply in the place where you received protection).

The only exception is the re-issuance of the document in the Budwańska Commune (Oprztyn), which will take place not in Budwa, but in Petrowacz, 8 B.N. Street (in front of the police station). In the city of Budwa. Only persons with disabilities will be able to reissue documents in Budva with the assistance of the Red Cross of Budva.


A personal application means an application by each adult family member; persons under 18 years of age do not need to come in person, their legal representatives can obtain a new document for them.

Representatives of UNHCR, the NGO Civil Alliance and the Red Cross will also be on duty at the offices, and you can contact them in case of any problems:
