5. TEMPORARY IMPORT AND EXPORT OF ITEMS

Serbian and foreign nationals staying on a temporary basis in Serbia can temporarily import items they require for the duration of their stay. Items are listed on form no. 7 – “List of items temporarily imported by the traveller” (“Spisak stvari koje putnik privremeno unosi”). The list is stamped by a customs officer, and the designation PUR (privremeno uneo robu / temporarily imported goods) is entered in the travel document. Temporarily imported goods must be returned abroad on first exit from the country and the PUR designation will be voided at that time.

Serbian and foreign nationals with residence in Serbia can when travelling abroad, besides items of personal baggage, temporarily export items they need for the duration of their stay abroad. These items are declared in writing to customs by filling in form no. 5 – “List of items which the traveller is temporarily exporting” (“Spisak stvari koje putnik privremeno iznosi“).

Foreign currency, credit and debit cards and foreign currency cheques may be freely brought into Serbia. Debit and credit cards and securities obtained in line with regulations may be freely taken out of the country.

Foreign nationals and Serbian nationals who live and work abroad may bring in an unlimited sum of foreign currency and take out a sum of up to 10,000 EUR. The sum of foreign currency being taken into the country should be declared to a customs officer who will issue a receipt on the basis of which the same sum may be taken out when exiting the country for the first time. Foreign currency that has been withdrawn from a person’s own foreign currency account in Serbia may be taken out of the country when accompanied by a bank receipt. Dinars may be brought in and taken out to an equivalent value of 10,000 EUR, while larger sums may only be brought in if purchased from a foreign bank and accompanied by a receipt from that bank. If foreign currency, dinars and travellers cheques are being taken out simultaneously, their sum must not exceed 10,000 EUR.

7. PERSONAL BAGGAGE

The personal baggage of Serbian and foreign travellers is exempt from customs duties, regardless of whether the traveller is carrying it on his or her person or entrusted it to a third-party for transport, and also regardless of whether or not the personal baggage is entering via the same means of transport as the traveller.

What constitutes personal baggage is decided on a case-by-case basis and depends on the season of the year, the traveller’s occupation, purpose and duration of travel etc. In line with common customs practice, personal baggage comprises items of clothing, personal hygiene, foodstuffs, various technical goods, sporting equipment needed for the trip, medicines and similar items.

Items of personal baggage brought into Serbia may include: 1 bottle of perfume, 1 bottle of toilet water, 1 litre of spirits, tobacco products equivalent to 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 250 g of rolling tobacco or a total of 250 g of all of these products, as well as medicines in those quantities essential for treatment (doctor’s prescription is not required for medicines).

Besides items of personal luggage, Serbian travellers are also exempt from paying import duty on items they are bringing in from abroad, as long as they are not intended for resale, up to a total value of 100 EUR in dinars. Individuals may not import items that are intended for resale, i.e. goods of a commercial nature.


8. POST

Serbian and foreign nationals are exempt from paying import duty on items received from individuals abroad via the postal system to a total value of 20 EUR in dinars. The value of items received from abroad also includes the amount paid for transportation costs or postage.

9. PROHIBITATIONS AND LIMITATIONS

Individuals may not import or export goods of a commercial nature, weapons or ammunition.

Items of artistic or cultural value may only be taken out of Serbia with the permission of the Ministry of Culture.

Hunting weapons and ammunition (in appropriate quantities) may be temporarily brought into Serbia only for use on a hunting trip arranged by an approved organisation. Game and hunting trophies may be taken out of Serbia only if a shipping document has been issued for the goods (for game) or a trophy licence (for trophies).

When importing animals, it is necessary to provide evidence of the animal’s good health and obtain a document at the border crossing from the relevant border inspection service.

10. WATER AND FOOD

The public water supply in Serbian towns and cities is safe and palatable. There are a great number of brands of bottled water, both still and sparkling, widely sold at affordable prices. Water from public fountains is also safe to drink, unless there is a specific warning that it is not suitable for drinking.

Milk and dairy products are produced to European standards. Fruit and vegetables are safe to consume with standard washing before use. In general, as in every other European country, all food and drink bought at regular points of sale is safe to consume.

11. HEALTHCARE

Vaccinations against infectious diseases are not necessary. Normal hygiene practices are enough to ensure a safe stay in Serbia.

There are hospitals and clinics in all large towns and cities and there are medical surgeries in smaller towns.

Foreign nationals, as well as Serbian nationals who live and work abroad, are entitled to urgent medical assistance for the duration of their stay in Serbia. Citizens of countries with which an international health insurance treaty has been signed are entitled to urgent medical assistance in Serbia on the basis of a certificate of health insurance held. They are entitled to urgent medical assistance by filling in the necessary forms (if these are required) or on the basis of a document proving that they are insured in their home country.

Citizens of Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria and Great Britain are entitled to urgent medical assistance on the basis of a document proving that they have health insurance in their own country. The citizens of the following countries are entitled to urgent healthcare on the basis of a prescribed form: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands and Romania. Citizens of the aforementioned countries not having the required confirmation with them may still receive urgent medical assistance with confirmation requested from their own insurer at a later date. Foreign nationals with chronic or acute conditions (on dialysis, insulin etc.) need special certificates in order for them to receive such health services free of charge in Serbia.

Citizens of countries with which Serbia has not signed an international health insurance treaty pay for emergency medical assistance received during their temporary stay in Serbia. Any costs incurred may be reimbursed by their own insurance company on return to their home country.

12. EMERGENCIES

The Emergency Ambulance Service can be reached by calling 194 and is available 24 hours a day.

In larger towns and cities there are also 24-hour dental surgeries, as well as 24-hour health institutions for all kinds of urgent conditions or injuries.

Selected pharmacies are also open 24 hours, although some medicines require a doctor’s prescription.


13. VETERINARY SERVICE

Serbia is covered by a network of veterinary clinics and offices, some of which are also open 24 hours.
