Background Information

Governing Law: The list and dates of the official public holidays in Montenegro are regulated by the Bill on National and Other Holidays, approved by Cabinet on April 19, 2007, and voted by parliament in May 2007. This law enshrines the 2004 Law on the National Holiday which was passed before Montenegro's independence.  Independence Day: Montenegro held an independence referendum in the spring of 2006 under rules set by the EU. The vote for severing ties with Serbia exceeded the 55% threshold, allowing Montenegro to formally declare its independence on 3 June 2006. However, in May 2007, the Montenego parliament made May 21, and not June 3, the official Independence Day public holiday.  Statehood Day: In 2004, while still united with Serbia, the parliament of Montenegro passed The Law on the National Holiday which declares as National Day, July 13, the day in 1878 on which the Berlin Congress recognized Montenegro as the twenty-seventh independent state in the world and in 1941 when the Montenegrins staged an uprising against the Nazi occupiers and sided with the partisan communist movement.  Montenegro International Codes ME and MNE (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .me (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Montenegro information and news: UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Montenegro maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Montenegro), and Wikipedia (includes Montenegro commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
