The COVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic turned out to much more serious than first thought. High temperatures didn’t stop the spread of the virus, and some countries have the same or tougher situation comparing to the first breakout of the virus. One of the industries that has suffered heavy losses is, for surely, the tourism & hospitality industry. But, on the other hand, you can still travel freely & with no additional obstacles across the country.
What could you expect as a Serbian citizen if you want to travel abroad?
The European Union has decided still not to return Serbia to the list of COVID-19 safe countries & this will probably not change until September.
If you still in a need to travel, please do check what are the terms&condition for passing through the borders of the country you wish to visit.
In the following you can find some useful info about the countries interesting for Serbian citizens.

If you are not in a possession of this document you will need to be self isolated, and you will need to take a test (at your own expense) in the following 48 hours. If you choose not to comply, fines are up to 1450€.
Starting from the 15th of July citizens of Serbia need to spend 2 weeks quarantined which can be lowered down to 7 days if test show that you are not infected.
Since the 5th July, all road borders are closed for Serbian citizens, as well as air traffic, including charters. As the numbers get lower in Serbia, the situation will probably change.

Still, there are some good news like i.e. the fact you can travel freely to Bosnia&Hercegovina or, if you are feeling more adventurous, even to Namibia. In other words, as Confucius once said: “One who wants to do something will find a way; One who doesn’t will find an excuse.”
