Reciprocal Health Agreement With Australia

Many hospitals in Montenegro do not accept the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to prove that you are entitled to free emergency care. The CEC is not applicable outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Be sure to mention the mutual health agreement with the UK and have all the necessary evidence documents when you have access to health care.

If not, ask the local public health. You must ensure that you have adequate travel and health insurance to cover your stay in these places.
