Serbia Visa and Passport Requirements
|Passport required||Return ticket required||Visa required|
To enter Serbia, a passport valid for the duration of stay is required by all nationals referred to in the chart above except (1) EU nationals holding a valid national ID card.
Make sure you get an entry stamp in your passport on arrival as anyone without one of these can suffer problems and a fine on departure. Do not attempt to enter Serbia via Kosovo as the Serbian government doesn’t recognise Kosovo as an official entry point, and doesn’t recognise Republic of Kosovo passport stamps.
You must register with the police within 24 hours of arrival. If you’re staying in a hotel, this is usually done automatically when you check in.
Visas for Serbia are not required by nationals referred to in the chart above for stays of up to 90 days.
Nationals not referred to in the chart should contact the embassy to check visa requirements for Serbia.
Transit visa: single, double or multiple stays of up to five days each within a six-month period; short-stay visa: 90 days within a six-month period.
Serbia is not a signatory to the Schengen agreement, but it does allow Schengen visa holders to enter without needing to obtain an additional visa.
