Before you move to Serbia, you should familiarize yourself with the entry requirements and the procedures for obtaining a residence permit. Whether or not you need a visa to enter Serbia mainly depends on three different factors: the planned length of your stay, your nationality, and your reason for visiting or relocating.

Thousands of foreign companies operate in Serbia, and according to official records from 2021, every tenth owner out of total number of active companies, foundations and associations is a foreigner. Economically, Serbia is well positioned in the region, with access to over one billion consumers through free-trade agreements and an advanced road network. It’s also strong in several sectors, such as agriculture and food and IT services, which are predicted to see growing demand over the coming decades.

And the country is moving toward membership in the European Union. Serbia signed free trade agreements with Turkey, the Eurasian Economic Union (which includes Russia), the other non-EU Balkan states, has nearly free trade with the EU, and preferential agreements with the US and Japan. Additionally, it is a member of the Chinese Belt & Road initiative which is resulting in a lot of infrastructure development for Serbia.

Finally, Serbia also has one of the few passports granted visa-free access to the EU, Russia, Japan, and China
