COVID Certificate

As you are already familiar with the situation regarding the Covid 19 virus, i.e., the difficult situation that has been raging globally for almost two years, we want to inform you about the new legislation that will be applied in the Republic of Serbia, as measures to prevent the spread of Covid 19 virus.

On 25th of October 2021. on the territory of the Republic of Serbia, the Decree amending the Decree on Measures for the Prevention and Suppression of the Infectious Disease COVID-19 began to be applied, and which prescribes the provisions that further determine the measures for the prevention of the Infection Disease COVID-19.

In a closed facility where catering facilities services are provided by serving food and beverages (except for facilities where food and beverages are served so that the user does not enter the facility – the so-called counter sale, when food and beverages are made by delivery, or without direct user of the provider and service user or when the facility is within a closed commercial facility and food and beverages are not served to seated customers), as well as in facilities that are not in the register of catering facilities, but where entertainment and festive events are held (wedding halls etc.), as a provider or user of the service in the period from 22.00 hours until the end of working hours of that working day, can stay only a person who has a Covid-19 certificate.

The previously mentioned rule does not apply to shopping malls since shopping malls work until 22.00 hours.

Covid certificate is a document that confirms that a document holder has:
