Serbian citizens may enter Romania with a travel document issued in the last ten years, which must be valid for at least three months after the intended date of leaving its territory. Passengers who do not meet these criteria will be returned from the border.

Holders of biometric passports of the Republic of Serbia are not required to obtain visa for stays of up to 90 days in a six-month period. The visa-free regime does not apply to holders of travel documents issued by the Coordination Directorate of the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Serbia.

To obtain visa for a long-term stay in Romania, foreign citizens are required to have a travel document which must be valid for at least three months after the intended date of leaving the territory of Romania or three months after the expiry of the long-stay visa. Also, when applying for the long-stay visa, the travel document must contain at least two blank pages.

When entering Romania, in addition to the travel document, travellers are required to have:

•  a health insurance certificate;

• a return ticket (air, train, bus) or, if travelling by one’s own car, vehicle registration papers, driver’s licence and vignette. The vignette can be purchased at border crossing points or petrol stations;

• sufficient financial means for the intended travel, i.e. 50 euros per day, but not less than 500 euros for the entire period (or an equivalent amount in a convertible currency). Credit cards with a bank statement not older than two days from the date of the intended travel are also accepted;

• a notarised invitation letter from the inviter (host) or a voucher from the hotel providing accommodation during the stay abroad.

Special instructions on customs control are in place in Romania, in line with the EU acquis, aimed at preventing and fighting tax and customs duty evasion for certain products. The instructions impose quantity restrictions on the following goods brought into the territory of Romania in travellers’ personal luggage: tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, fuel, flowers and decorative plants, sunflower oil, refined sugar, flour, bran, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Travellers are required to declare goods carried in their luggage by filling in the “Declaration of non-commercial goods”. The enforcement of new regulations will enable the Romanian customs authorities to identify cases of passengers bringing in large quantities of these goods, declaring them for personal needs, and then selling them on the black market.



The Agreement on Social Security between the Republic of Serbia and Romania is in force. It regulates issues related to the exercise of the right to social and health protection (health, pension and disability insurance, insurance covering work-related injuries and occupational diseases, as well as family benefits). This ensures that all Serbian citizens covered by this Agreement enjoy the rights and meet the obligations stipulated in the statutes of the Contracting Parties under the same conditions as Romanian citizens.
