Taking dinars and foreign currency in and out
Foreign currency, credit and debit cards and foreign currency cheques may be freely taken into Serbia. Credit cards and securities obtained in accordance with the regulations may be freely taken out of the country.
Foreign citizens may carry in unlimited sums of foreign currency, and may take out up to 2000 EUR. Travellers should report the amount of foreign currency that they are taking into the country to a customs officer in order to obtain a receipt on the basis of which they may take this same sum out when exiting the country for the first time. They may carry out foreign currency that they have withdrawn from their foreign currency account in Serbia, when accompanied by a bank receipt. Dinars may be taken in and out up to an amount of 120,000 dinars per person, in 1000 dinar notes or smaller, while an amount greater than 120,000 dinars may only be carried in if the dinars have been bought in a foreign bank and are accompanied by a receipt from that bank. If foreign currency, dinars and travellers cheques are being carried out simultaneously, their sum must not exceed 2000 EUR.
According to common customs practice, personal baggage comprises items of clothing, personal hygiene, foodstuffs, various technical items, sporting equipment needed for the trip, medicines and similar items.
In accordance with the international Convention Concerning Customs Facilities for Touring, items of personal baggage may include one bottle of perfume, one bottle of toilet water, 1 litre of spirits, tobacco products equivalent to 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 250 g of tobacco or a total of 250 g of all these products, as well as medicines in those quantities essential for treatment (doctor’s prescription is not required for medicines).
Prohibitions and limitations
Private individuals may not import and export goods of a commercial nature, weapons or ammunition.
Items of artistic or cultural value may be taken out of Serbia only with the permission of the Ministry of Culture. Hunting weapons and ammunition (in appropriate quantities) may be temporarily brought into Serbia only when coming on an hunting trip organised by an authorised body. Game and hunting trophies may be taken out of Serbia only if a shipping document has been issued for the goods (for game) or a trophy licence (for trophies).
While you might not need a visa…
Foreigners are required by law to register themselves with the police station in their district within 24 hours of receiving a Serbian entry stamp at a border crossing or airport. Registration is done automatically by hotel staff upon check-in, however if you are staying with friends in a private dwelling, the responsibility falls on you and your host to register yourself with the police in the district in which you are staying. Before visiting the police station you will need to buy a Foreigner Registration Form from a nearby newsagent or bookstore (these usually cost 15 dinara). With completed form in hand, your host and you should submit your passport and your host’s Serbian ID card along with the Registration Form. You will receive the bottom half of the Form to carry with you; when exiting the country, you will be required to present it to the Border Police. Sometimes they will not ask for it, and you can keep it as an administrative memento. Never forget, though, that failure to register and obtain the bottom half of the Registration Form can result in prosecution and a large fine.
