In some Montenegrin municipalities, a foreign citizen has to submit all the above documents translated and certified by the Embassy, Consulate, or a certified court interpreter. For a marriage, it is necessary to make an application no later than seven days before the scheduled wedding, which must be attended by both future spouses.
Also, with the existence of certain documents, a church wedding can be organized in Orthodox and Catholic churches in Montenegro. It is necessary to make an appointment in the parish where you want to get married and to submit the baptismal certificate. This document is also a confirmation that you are not already married and is valid for six months.
