The director of the National Association of Tourist Agencies of Serbia (YUTA), Aleksandar Senii, says that we will certainly travel more this summer than the prologue, but how and under what conditions it will be known in about a month.
He said that there was no agreement at the global level on the introduction of the covid-pass – the World Health Organization, nor the World Tourism Organization, and that the countries would decide for themselves whether to introduce an application that should enable faster travel.
“At the moment, it is more realistic to introduce a vaccination certificate. Our citizens who have been vaccinated have received vaccination certificates, which are bilingual in English and Serbian. The vaccination certificate will be an advantage when traveling,” Senii said.
He states that there is a lot of speculation about whether all vaccines will be recognized, and adds that due to the lack of vaccines on the market, he believes that this will not be a problem.

“It is important that you are vaccinated, no matter what vaccine, at least at the moment it looks like that,” he said, noting that Greece was open to Serbian citizens for only ten days last season, and that this year it will be in April. known conditions for EU citizens to enter the country, and for third world countries, including the Balkan countries.
“Through our Ministry of Tourism, we are discussing these protocols, we are trying to establish a single vaccination certificate that will be accepted in both Serbia and Greece. We are trying to find an alternative for people who have not been vaccinated. For now, the alternative is PCR test, and we are trying to agree that these should be rapid antigen tests, “he said.
He expects other countries to comment on the vaccination certificate, as it will apply to people entering Turkey or Egypt, where a PCR test is now required.

“We owe the Crisis tab whether the citizens returning from those countries have enough confirmation of vaccination, because now a PCR test is needed to return to Serbia,” Senii said.
We can now travel to the surrounding countries without a PCR test – Montenegro, Northern Macedonia, Albania, he reminds and adds that it will remain so during the summer.
“We also expect Bulgaria to cancel the PCR test, as well as Turkey. When it comes to Egypt, we have no announcements that it will cancel the PCR test, we are waiting for a statement on the issue of vaccination,” he said.
