UAE and Serbia sign quarantine-free travel agreement

A travel corridor for vaccinated travellers was established on 15 May

The UAE and Serbia signed an agreement regarding a quarantine-free travel corridor for fully vaccinated people.

The quarantine-free travel corridor will apply to vaccinated people holding vaccination certificates issued by health authorities in the two countries, as of 15 May, without the need to apply health quarantine requirements upon arrival.

The signing of the memorandum of understanding (MoU), held virtually, was attended by UAE  Minister of State for International Cooperation Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy and Serbian Minister of Trade, Tourism and Communications Tatjana Matic.

The step reflects the determination of the leadership of both countries to ease the movement of people and achieve the goals of vaccination campaigns to ensure the inoculation of all eligible community members.

As per the new rule, citizens and expatriate residents, who want to benefit from the quarantine-free travel corridor, need to show evidence confirming that they are fully vaccinated according to the approved applications or certificates issued by their health authorities. Passengers can also present the results of the PCR test through these applications.
