Montenegro’s summer season in peril: Plans reopening borders with Albania and Kosovo

Montenegro closed its borders with Albania and Kosovo on June 22, 2020 due to the surge of coronavirus cases in both countries. But two weeks later, Montenegro is considering reopening the land borders, as a measure to save the summer tourist season.

The first indication of border reopening came from the mayor of Ulcinj, Loro Nrekic. He says that the opening of Montenegro’s borders to the countries of the region, is the only way to save this summer season in Ulcinj and other destinations.

Ndrekic added that Kosovo and Albania are on the list of countries whose nationals Montenegro will allow to enter, starting this weekend.

Zëri newspaper says sources from the Ministry of Tourism confirmed Nrekic’s statement.

As Montenegrin authorities agreed to allow EU nationals to enter the country, such step is expected to be implemented for citizens of Albania and Kosovo.
