VISA REQUIREMENTS

The holders of Turkish passports do not require visa for entering the Republic of Serbia. The maximum stay is 90 days during 6 months period (clarification: counting all the days spent in Serbia during 6 months period, nevermind the possible multiple enteries, must not exceed 90 days). Although visa is not needed, border control officers have the right to deny the entry. The recommendation is to have some additional documents with yourself, that might help in that case, like return ticket, accommodation reservation etc.

Holders of foreign passports having a valid Schengen, UK, EU Member States' visa, or USA visa, and for holders of foreign passports having residence permit in the countries of the Schengen area, EU or the United States of America, do not require visa to enter the Republic of Serbia.
