Amendments to the Law on Foreigners and the Law on Employment of Foreigners

To facilitate easier obtaining of residence and work permits, due to the increasing influx of foreigners coming to live and work in the Republic of Serbia, new amendments were made to the Law on Foreigners and the Law on Employment of Foreigners in 2023.

As a result of these legal amendments, there was a need to adopt new bylaws that would comply with the latest changes. Accordingly, at the beginning of this year, the Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted 4 new rulebooks for this purpose, namely:

  • The Rulebook on Granting Permanent Residence (which entered into force on 05.02.2024), 
  • The Rulebook on Granting Temporary Residence
  • The Rulebook on Issuing a Single Permit for Temporary Residence and Work of Foreigners, and
  • The Rulebook on Submitting Applications for Permanent Residence Electronically (which entered into force on 01.02.2024).

JPM Senior Associate Marko Mrđa and Associate Dimitrije Stepanović are providing a detailed information on all relevant changes in legislation. The complete text of the article (in Serbian and English) can be found HERE.
