Some 40,000 foreign nationals vaccinated in Serbia against COVID-19 with any of the four available shots will get the so-called digital green certificate, the head of the government’s IT Office, Mihailo Jovanovic, said on Friday.
This also applies to the foreigners who don’t have a residence permit in Serbia or an ID. They should apply for the digital green certificate via the IT Office’s website using the same passport as during registration for the immunisation.
This is also possible for foreigners with the Unique Master Citizen Number (JMBG), such as the Bosnia and Herzegovina nationals.
The certificate will be available in Serbian-English and Serbian-Chinese languages and can be sent via e-mail. It also has a mobile phone version.
A digital green certificate is digital proof that a person has either been vaccinated against COVID-19, received a negative test result or recovered from COVID-19. A digital green certificate will be accepted in all EU Member States. It will help to ensure that restrictions currently in place can be lifted in a coordinated manner.
When travelling, every EU citizen or third-country national legally staying or residing in the EU, who holds a Digital Green Certificate, should be exempted from free movement restrictions in the same way as citizens from the visited Member State.
