What is the Serbia Work e-Visa?

If you want to enter the Republic of Serbia for employment purposes, you should apply for a Visa D category, the Serbia Work e-Visa. This temporary visa service allows you to work and live in Serbia for a limited period.

Employers who intend to hire foreign nationals must apply for work permits for them. If the foreigner plans to stay to work in Serbia for more than 180 days, they must apply for a temporary residence permit.

Who is eligible to apply for this e-Visa for Serbia?

Anyone who wishes to work in Serbia must apply for this visa. The employer is responsible for the payment of the fees for a work permit. They must also register all foreign employees for social security.

Although Serbia is a European country, it is not a member of the European Union (EU). This means that EU citizens also require a work permit in Serbia, like all foreigners. If Serbia joins the EU, this requirement will change.

If you need another visa for Serbia, such as a tourist visa or transit visa, contact the consulate general of Serbia near you for more information.
