Absolutely excellent service! A friend of mine referred me to Montenegro Digital Nomad Agency. I happened to be in nearby Dubrovnik and quickly arranged a meeting in Montenegro. I received very clear and transparent information about setting up a company in Montenegro, the tax benefits, and everything else involved. I decided to take that route, and the agency assisted me in the best possible manner. Dealing with notaries, the city council administration, a bank, and the tax office is all complex, especially when you don't speak the language, but there wasn't a single moment when I had to worry. At every crucial moment, I was accompanied by someone who advised me on what to do next, and I never felt overwhelmed by any red tape. The fees that the agency charges are very reasonable, especially in comparison with the value offered! I'm a very, very happy camper, and warmly recommend them to everyone else interested in setting up their own business in this tiny but beautiful country! Erik

We were deciding between Corfu-Greece, Calabria Region-Italy, Dubrovnik-Croatia and Montenegro. All of these places were nice but it was the customer service from Jonathan and the exceptional customer service received from the Montenegro Digital Nomad Agency! This was a major life event change and we were very scared of the many unknowns associated with moving to another country to live and start a business. I'm embarrassed to say that we bombarded Jonathan and the team with so many questions, and they patiently answered them. Honestly, there were times when they could not drop everything to answer some questions, but they would tell us that they would research and get back to us in a timely fashion, and they did. Other countries that were mentioned above were slow to respond or would not even answer our questions unless you paid a deposit, or have already received your proof of retirement from either the United States Social Security Department or the United Kingdom's HRMC Department, or that you already received your FBI Apostille documents. The team assisted with a brief background of each of the main cities to help us determine the best location for our needs. Knowing which locations were more for the late-night parties versus us seeking a more family environment, helped in finding the correct home for our needs. All this before assisting in completing the required Montenegrin documents for our resident permits. We stayed 3 days during Christmas time to determine how the winters were here. We already knew we loved the spring and summer months. It was not crazy cold like other parts of Europe. It felt slightly colder than California but nowhere near a London, England winter. If you come for a few days to visit you should already be prepared to look for a place to live. It will be very helpful to secure a lease before returning home. Securing our first apartment here before returning home was extremely helpful and expedited the relocation process with the movers. The movers will negotiate a price with you if they know you are serious and already have the ship-to address. Happy to say that the whole process of moving and receiving approval for our resident permits just took 88 days. It was nice to stop having to pay the weekly Montenegrin Travel for our 90 day US passport stay. The main hold-up was not the fault of the team. It was receiving our FBI Apostille documents back in a timely fashion. Once you made the major decision to relocate but may not have decided on your final destination. I highly recommend starting the process of receiving your hard copy FBI Apostille and if you are married get your Marriage Certificate Apostille. We made the mistake of doing this within the 90-day visa stay in Montenegro and received the documents way later than we were promised by vendor. The team assisted in suggesting the best method to relocate my household items from the United States. Their team is highly responsive and consistently goes the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. Once we received our Residence Permits, Djordje, and the team assisted with gaining approval at the bank for us to receive our corporate bank account, personal checking accounts and, credit cards. Special thanks to Jonathan, Djordje, and the support team for their unwavering assistance in promptly addressing any doubts in providing timely updates. Delighted to report that both the boxes and the TV arrived in excellent condition. Highly recommend Montenegro Digital Nomad Agency for their efficient, one-stop shopping and customer-centric approach! Thank you!!!

Montenegro had a special appeal to us and we wanted to obtain a resident permit. Jonathan’s firm was our best choice after several enquiries we decided to engage with Jonathan. Montenegro is a small country with lots of advantages and challenges, especially for non-European nationalities and during extraordinary COVID times Jonathan, along with his professional legal and accountable team, was able to navigate the legal framework and help us obtain residence permits successfully by resolving issues along the way. We highly recommend Jonathan to anyone who may be interested in Montenegro.
