Medical and Security Alerts for Serbia

COVID-19 information for Serbia

Dedicated COVID-19 website

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The main risks in Serbia's major cities stem from petty theft and street crime. The risks in south of the country are slightly higher, as the rule of law is less effective, infrastructure is less well developed and levels of organised crime are higher. During periods of heightened tensions with neighbouring states, the risk of unrest is elevated in the southern regions.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
