On Wednesday, August 14, a ban on smoking indoors comes into force in Montenegro after the Law on the restriction of tobacco use in public places has been published on August 7 this year in the Official List of Montenegro.
The law, which prohibits the use of tobacco products in public places and enclosed spaces, with the exception of casinos, was unanimously adopted by the Parliament of Montenegro on July 31, 2019. It should come into force eight days after its publication in the Official Protocol of Montenegro.
It is worth noting that with the adoption of the new Law on the restriction of the use of tobacco products in premises, the Law on Fees will cease to apply and the owners of the establishments will no longer have to pay taxes for obtaining a smoking permit in any part of the establishment (the so-called "smoking areas"). The new law prohibits smoking in any room or area where food and drinks are consumed. The request of the Chamber of Commerce and the organizers of gambling, which are an exception, was accepted by the Montenegrin authorities, since the casinos expressed their readiness, in addition to installing ventilation devices and air purifiers, to pay fees in the amount determined by the Government of Montenegro.
