PCR test no longer mandatory when entering Serbia
Starting on Friday, 22 May, a negative test or a special permit for both domestic and foreign citizens will not be required to enter Serbia, it was recommended to the government of the Republic of Serbia today.
The Crisis Response Team for the Suppression of Infectious Disease COVID-19 in its meeting today analysed the current epidemiological situation and adjusted the measures to be applied.
All persons entering the territory of Serbia will be handed health warnings stating that they are entering the territory where the virus is still circulating, and the instructions on how to prevent the infection. This recommendation should be confirmed on Thursday, at the session of the government of Serbia.
The Crisis Response Team for the Suppression of Infectious Disease COVID-19 made a recommendation to open an administrative crossing to Kosovo-Metohija.
PCR tests for coronavirus, at the personal request of the citizens of Serbia and foreign citizens, will cost RSD 6,000 in the territory of the entire Republic of Serbia. The testing is still free for students and minors.
Bearing in mind the current epidemiological situation, it was decided that certain health care institutions that were designated for COVID hospitals will gradually return to the normal work process. In such institutions, all medical workers will be tested for coronavirus and will start working only after a negative result.
Given the numerous speculations that have been circulating in previous days, the Crisis Response Team for the Suppression of Infectious Disease COVID-19 emphasises that it has never recommended sanctions for not wearing masks in the open and that the introduction of such measures is certainly not being planned.
