Health and medical care
This country belongs among the safe countries without occurrence of exotic disease. Therefore, there is no need to be afraid of catching any serious illness. A vaccination is not necessary to enter the country. In case a visitor suffers from some chronic disease, it is recommended to consult a doctor at least 3 months before the departure.
The emergency care or the first aid is free of charge in Montenegro, but only in the state medical facilities. In the private facilities the visitor will have to pay for a treatment on his own costs. In extreme cases the patient may be advised to return to the home country.
In any case, it is recommendable to have travel insurance before the travel according to the length and purpose of the stay. It is very useful providing the tourist needs more expensive medical treatment or transfer, he will pay 100 crowns in cash and the rest of the money will be refunded after presenting an account of medical care to his Slovak insurance company. If the costs are higher, they will be covered up by an assistant service of the insurance.
If the tourist is taking any medicine regularly, it is useful to pack it in, because it does not have to be available in Montenegro or its purchase in pharmacy does not have to be very favourable. It is also very useful to bring the basic pills as for example against high temperature or feeble pain from home.
