Serbia allows EU citizens to travel without passports

The government decided on Friday (May 28th) to allow EU citizens, as well as those of Switzerland, Norway and Iceland, to enter Serbia and travel around the country without a passport this summer, relying instead on an identity card. The announcement, made at a joint press conference in Belgrade by Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic and Interior Minister Ivica Dacic, signals Serbia’s determination to integrate with Europe. Last month, Serbia, a main transit point between Western Europe, Greece and Turkey, allowed EU citizens to proceed with only an ID card when the Icelandic ash cloud halted air traffic throughout Europe.
