Serbian FM says borders to open with four countries on June 1

May 20, 2020

Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Wednesday Serbia will open its borders with Montenegro, North Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania on June 1 and expects those countries to confirm if their borders will be open for Serbian nationals.

“Their citizens will be able to enter Serbia but those countries have to tell us if our citizens can go there. They haven’t replied yet,” Dacic told the pro-government TV Prva. He added that Serbian nationals and foreigners will be able to move freely in and out of Serbia with no quarantine, tests or permits. “Whether that is safe depends of what epidemiologists say. If their analysis shows that the epidemic is in the process of weakening and disappearing and that new cases are not serious,” he said.

“The idea is to reach an agreement on a system of open borders with these four countries with no need for people to be in quarantine for 14 days and probably without tests,” Dacic said.
