Besides the general Serbian visa requirements, there is an additional requirement for the issuance of the short-term C visa for transit. That is to have a transit or entry visa for the next country that you are transiting after Serbia, as well as an entry visa for the country of your final destination. In case that a visa is not required for that country, you may be asked to present other documents explaining the purpose of your visit there. Make sure you are fully aware of all the documentation needed.
Citizens of countries that do not need a visa to enter Serbia, don't need a visa to transit either. You can easily check on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs what your obligations in terms of entering Serbia are.
If your country belongs to a group of countries for the citizens of which a visa is required to enter Serbia, two situations are possible:
- If you donâ€™t plan on leaving the international airport transit area, you do not need a visa, but exceptions can be prescribed due to safety reasons, which is something that you should always check beforehand with your airline provider or after you book your ticket.
- If you are leaving the international airport transit area, you need to obtain a short term C type visa for the purpose of transit.
