The Government of the Republic of Serbia has adopted a Decision on amending the Decision to declare the disease COVID-19 caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2 an infectious disease, whereby the ban to enter the Republic of Serbia ceases to be in force.
According to this decision, citizens of the Republic of Serbia and foreign citizens are no longer required to have a special approval/authorisation to enter the Republic of Serbia. Thereof, the usual regime to cross the border of the Republic of Serbia resumes.
Also, all persons entering the Republic of Serbia – instead of the previous measures of isolation and mandatory negative PCR test to COVID-19, will be served at the passport control (only) a written information, both in Serbian and English, on measures to respect in order to prevent the outbreak, spread and eradication of the infectious disease COVID-19.
Foreign citizens, possessing a temporary stay authorisation in the Republic of Serbia which has expired after the day the state of emergency was declared due to the epidemic disease COVID-19 caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, will be allowed to enter the Republic of Serbia until 1 July 2020 at the latest and legally submit a request for extension of their temporary stay within 30 days from the day they entered the Republic of Serbia. In view of that, it will be considered that the temporary stay authorisation for this category of foreign citizens (whose temporary stay authorisation in the Republic of Serbia expired while being abroad) is valid at the moment they enter the Republic of Serbia and that, pending the completion of the procedure following their request to extend their temporary stay, the foreign citizen will be staying legally in the Republic of Serbia.
The same decision stipulates that all persons who entered the Republic of Serbia in accordance with the previously valid regulation, and who were ordered a 14-day self-isolation (at home) for an acute respiratory illness caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, which has still not expired on the day this decision entered into force, will no longer have to apply this measure.
The Government of the Republic of Serbia has adopted a Decision to cancel the Decision to close all border crossings to enter the Republic of Serbia, including the Decision to cancel the Decision to close border crossings.
