Exciting News! Get Ready for 3 Thrilling Changes in Legal Requirements for Foreigners in 2024

In 2024, an exhilarating transformation awaits foreigners as the Republic of Serbia (RoS) sets its sights on revolutionizing the way they are treated. With a staggering number of international visitors flocking to RoS, including those from Russia, Ukraine, China, and Nepal, it’s no wonder that significant changes are on the horizon.

Preliminary data reveals that over 12,000 work licenses have been granted to foreigners in RoS this year alone.

Brace yourselves for three dramatic alterations in the legal landscape!

1. Work Freely, No Work Permit Required!

Picture this: foreigners with temporary residence for reasons other than employment being able to work in RoS without the hassle of acquiring a Work Permit. Thanks to the upcoming revisions, individuals granted temporary residence for family reunions, real estate ownership, studies, scientific research, and similar purposes can engage in work activities without the need for a Work Permit.

2. The Unified Permit: Seamlessly Combine Residence and Work!

Say goodbye to the bureaucratic maze. Foreigners will be able to apply for both Temporary Residence and Work Permits simultaneously, streamlining the process and eliminating the requirement to first secure Temporary Residence before obtaining a Work Permit. The innovative Unified Permit will be granted to foreigners based on their grounds for Temporary Residence in RoS, spanning a generous period of up to three years, in contrast to the current limit of one year.

3. Fast-Track to Permanent Residency: Just Three Years!

Imagine the joy of obtaining permanent residency in RoS after just three years of continuous residence, instead of the previous five-year requirement. Under the revised laws, foreigners who have resided in RoS uninterruptedly for three years will be eligible for permanent residency, offering a shorter path to long-term settlement and security.

Exciting Conclusion

Hold your breath for these groundbreaking changes! If the proposed amendments to the Law on Foreigners and the Law on Employment of Foreigners are approved, foreigners can look forward to a whole new world of opportunities and possibilities starting from February 1, 2024.

PS. Mark your calendars and prepare to embark on an adventure where residence and work blend harmoniously, all while enjoying an expedited journey to permanent residency in the beautiful Republic of Serbia.
