Обновлено: 26 мая 2022 г.

Read all about the situation in Serbia as regards the Covid 19 pandemic and what it looks like to travel through Serbia, what you might expect, what attractions are available and what measures you must abide by.

UPDATE 5th May 2022

There are no restrictions on entering the Republic of Serbia.

The recommendation to wear masks indoors remains in force, while wearing masks in health facilities is mandatory.

UPDATE 12th March 2022

Member of the COVID-19 Crisis Response Team and Minister of Labour, Employment, Veterans and Social Affairs Darija Kisic announced that Covid passes will be abolished from Saturday 12th March 2022, adding that there will be no more restriction of the number of people indoors.

After the session of the team, Kisic pointed out that there is a decrease in all parameters, from the number of examinations to the number of hospitalised patients in relation to the number of confirmed cases, and that hospitals began to return to normal.

All this has led to the mitigation of all anti-epidemic measures. As of Saturday, the validity of the Covid pass will be revoked. At the gatherings in closed premises, the limit on the number of people is being abolished, so all cinemas and theatres will be able to work according to the normal regime, she specified.

Also, as she noted, it was decided that the recommendation to wear masks indoors remains, while the quarantine is still in force for seven days.

When it comes to passengers in international traffic, Kisic said that the measures remain in force, i.e., that proof of vaccination, proof of past illness or an appropriate serological test are required to enter the country.

The recommendation of the National Immunisation Committee is the introduction of an additional, fourth, booster dose, for those over 18, which can be obtained five months after the first one, and refers primarily to those who are at higher risk of severe disease, she said.

Serbia in Covid19 times

After the spring of 2020 and the complete two-month lockdown of the country, at the beginning of May Serbia opened to all visitors without special restrictions. We had several waves in which the number of infected people grew and so we came to the number of 610,232 confirmed cases with a death rate of 0.88% by the time of writing this article (April 2nd, 2021). Serbia promptly got organized in terms of procuring the necessary protective equipment and respirators, and two completely new Covid hospitals were built. You can follow all the information about the current situation in Serbia through the COVID.RS portal.

During the summer 2020, people got back to their daily routine in line with all protection measures (wearing masks, washing hands, physical distance...), and the level of activity decreased during the peaks of the pandemic of which there has been a total of four in Serbia so far.

In December 2020, the mandatory negative PCR test to enter Serbia was introduced, which continues today (read about getting PCR test in Serbia HERE).
