Serbia, a nation in Central Europe, has declared that it will no longer permit visa-free travel for people of India in light of changes to the EU’s visa regulations and steps taken to stop the flow of unauthorized immigrants. In light of this, the Indian Embassy in Belgrade, Serbia, has issued travel advice stating that beginning on January 1, 2023, all Indian visitors to Serbia will need to have a visa in order to enter the country.
