Georgia and Montenegro are considering abolishing visa requirements for each other’s citizens.

Georgian Ambassador Zaza Kandelaki discussed this issue as he met with the leadership from Montenegro’s Foreign Ministry today, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said.

Together with other officials, Kandelaki met with Selim Lika, director of the Consular Department at Montenegro’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration.

"The parties reviewed the matter of organising bilateral high-level visits both from the executive and legislative branches and stressed the importance of introducing visa-free travel between Georgia and Montenegro in the nearest future”, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said.

It added that Montenegro is planning to open an office of an Honorary Council in Tbilisi, which will help the economic and cultural relations deepen between the two countries.

A business forum for Georgian and Montenegrin businessmen is also being arranged.
