August 14, 2020 – Citizens of Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, and North Macedonia will have to take a negative PCR test no older than 48 hours to enter Serbia as of Saturday (August 15), the Serbian government’s Crisis Headquarters said on Friday.
N1 reports that the decision applies to North Macedonia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania, and the validity of the test is calculated 48 hours from the day the reference laboratory issued the result, Crisis Headquarters member Darija Kisic Tepavcevic explained to Radio Television of Serbia (RTS).
The headquarters has decided that the restrictions that applied to the citizens of Montenegro will cease to be valid, and all measures will come into force on Saturday, August 15, and will be valid until the epidemiological situation changes.
According to Kisic Tepavcevic, these measures do not apply to Serbian citizens who come from those countries, for now.
She explained to RTS that the decision was made based on an assessment of the current epidemiological situation and the trend in the incidence of the infection in recent days.
She pointed out that the epidemiological picture in Serbia has been changing for the better in recent days, and hospitals are gradually leaving the COVID system.
“We want a stable epidemiological situation because we are going to school, the season of respiratory infections is coming, and we want to reduce the intake of potential points of infection in our country,” said Kisic for RTS.
