Serbia’s border: immigration tips

Serbia can be a difficult place to travel sometimes. Decades of conflict and repression will keep ordinary people vigilant. However, when it comes to visas, it is very important to have the correct visa, especially in a country that is constantly looking at cross-border visas.

Serbia sees more tourists visiting the Balkan countries every year. Therefore, compliance with entry regulations or requirements is very important for your travel plan or immigration plan.

If you plan to travel to Serbia, please refer to the following suggestions to avoid getting into trouble.

Have the correct visa

After the brutal war with neighbouring Kosovo, Serbia has often remained vigilant against anyone crossing the border. And similar to the relationship between some Middle Eastern countries and Israel, if you have ever obtained a visa or entry and exit stamp from Kosovo, you will not be able to travel to Serbia.

Fortunately, times have changed and Serbian officials no longer put the “cancelled” stamp on your Kosovo visa as in the past. But whatever you do, don’t try to cross the border from Kosovo to Serbia. Entering Serbia through Kosovo without a Serbian entry stamp is considered illegal entry and may be subject to severe penalties.

Similarly, leaving Serbia through Kosovo is also illegal, and you run the risk of being accused of overdue entry.

In 2014, the Serbian government legislation stipulated that holders of foreign passports holding valid Schengen countries, other member states, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia can enter 90 days visa-free. Any visitor staying longer than 90 days or for business purposes requires a visa.

For those who may be dual nationals, it is also important to use the same passport when entering and leaving Serbia.

Through customs

Every country has strict customs officials, and Serbia has its own set of rules to check travelers.

Passengers must declare valuable items worth 10,000 Euros or more (such as laptops, cameras and jewelry) on arrival and declare to customs officials. This declaration form is required when leaving the country. Failure to comply may result in the confiscation of valuables.

You can now bring unlimited foreign currencies into Serbia, but please note that you can only bring out up to 10,000 Euros from the country.

Passengers beware

Similar to neighboring Bosnia and Croatia, the law requires foreigners to register with the police station in their area within 12 hours after your passport is stamped with the Serbian entry stamp at the transit port or airport. This may sound cumbersome, but if you don’t, you will find yourself breaking the law.

If you are booking a hotel, when you check in at the hotel, the staff will automatically register you with the police station. This is common when you travel to any country (even in France), so please don’t be too nervous. However, if you live in a private home with friends, you must register your residence at the police station in the area where you live.
