What does the latest EU decision mean for passengers from Serbia?


Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Tatjana Matic said that from tomorrow, digital green certificates from Serbia will be recognized not only at the borders but also in catering facilities across Europe.

As she said, the Serbian digital green certificate has passed the integration test of the European Commission, so at today’s session it will be recognized that it is integrated into the European digital green certificate.

From tomorrow, the IT Office will introduce a new service called Digital Green Certificate, compatible with the EU.

– During the week, a mobile application will be enabled, which means that citizens will be able to download it via mobile phone, and from next Monday, it will also be possible to pick up digital green certificates compatible with the EU at the Post office counters – said Matić.

The minister said that with this certificate, it will be possible to enter catering facilities, cinemas, restaurants and shops throughout Europe, while the old Serbian digital certificate will remain in use in the country and will continue to be issued. The certificate will also enable the crossing of borders, but exclusively on the basis of bilateral agreements that Serbia has with certain countries.

Matic recommended to citizens who intend to travel abroad to definitely take a certificate that is compatible with the EU, because, as she said, there were many complaints from citizens that with the existing certificate they could not enter restaurants, museums, cinemas, shops in EU countries.

– Simply put, people will function more easily and use the benefits in EU countries with a digital green certificate compatible with the EU – she said.

As for the recognition of certain types of vaccines, she pointed out that it is a bilateral matter and that it depends on the country to the EU member state.

Matic stated that it is possible to enter Hungary without a vaccination certificate, those who have been vaccinated with Chinese and Russian vaccines can also enter Greece, while in some countries vaccines are needed that are either on the list of the World Health Organization or recognized by the European Agency for Vaccination. drugs.

– The same rule still applies. I ask everyone to look at which countries accept which types of vaccines before traveling to a country, since there is no uniform approach by the EU – Matic concluded.
