The Government of the Republic of Serbia amended the Decision Declaring Covid-19 Disease Caused by Sars-Cov-2 Infectious Disease.

As of today, all persons entering the Republic of Serbia are, in the course of passport control, given a written notice – a bilingual health warning, in Serbian and English, about the measures to be followed to prevent the occurrence, spread, and control of the infectious disease COVID-19. The measure of isolation, as well as the obligation to have a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours and permission to enter and/or transit issued by the Government body do not exist in the amended Decision.

Foreign citizens whose temporary stay in the Republic of Serbia expired after the day of declaring a state of emergency in the Republic of Serbia may enter the Republic of Serbia no later than July 1, 2020, and legally submit a request for extension of temporary stay within 30 days from the day of entry into the Republic of Serbia. It is considered that the abovementioned temporary stay of a foreign citizen is valid at the time of his entry into the Republic of Serbia and that until the end of the procedure on the submitted request for extension of temporary residence, the foreign citizen legally resides in the Republic of Serbia.

The Decision is published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia and has entered into force on 22 May 2020.
