Serbians no longer need Russian visa to visit
Serbians no longer need to apply for a Russian visa to visit the country, if they are visiting for 30 days or less for tourism purposes.
The Russian visa agreement, which works on a reciprocal level with Serbia, allows Serbian nationals to enter Russia for up to 30 days if they have a valid passport on them. Those that wish to stay longer or enter for work or study purposes need to apply for a Russian visa to do so.
According to Russia-InfoCentre, the Russian visa agreement was signed in Febraury and has now come into effect.
Around 14,000 Russian tourists enter Serbia every year, and it is hoped that the Russian visa agreement would attract thousands more.
