“We expect to go to Turkey unhindered and that the obligatory PCR test will be abolished in April,” said today the Director of the National Association of Travel Agencies of Serbia (YUTA), Aleksandar Senii.
He said that the season in Turkey starts around April 15, when mostly Russian citizens come, and that the obligatory PCR test is expected to be abolished by then. For now, when it comes to Egypt, there are no indications that this test will be abolished, Senii said.
Speaking about Kovid passports, he told Prva TV that there is no consent for them at the world level – the World Health Organization, or the World Tourism Organization.
“Countries will decide for themselves whether to introduce an application that should enable faster travel … At the moment, it is more realistic to introduce vaccination certificates, but our citizens who have been vaccinated have received vaccination certificates, which are bilingual in English and Serbian. A vaccination certificate will be an advantage when traveling, “Senii said, adding that it doesn’t matter whether the documents are called covid passports or certificates.

“It will be an application that will be controlled by each state and in which there will be a vaccination certificate and the results of possible tests …”, stated Senii.
He also said that it is not good that “we are lagging behind in all decisions in all countries, including ours”, so that it is not known what is happening with those who have been vaccinated, ie whether they will need a PCR test to enter a country that seeks it.
“Vaccination is gaining momentum, more and more everywhere, that’s good,” Senii said.
Speaking about Greece, he reminded that the ban on entry is valid until March 8, that two meetings of the Serbian and Greek ministers have been organized since the beginning of the year, but that he is aware that whatever is decided, “will not be unconditional”.
“We insist that PCR tests are not mandatory, but antigenic, fast tests, because PCR tests are expensive … I am optimistic about that, so that the borders are open for us from the middle and end of April,” he said.
