Citizenship of Serbia: a small Balkan country with big potential

Citizenship of Serbia

The Republic of Serbia amends the law on citizenship. What does it mean? Who would be allowed to obtain Citizenship of Serbia. Recently it became known that the local government wants  to build an official scheme for the naturalization procedure for those who have been legally residing in Serbia for at least a year, and will also fulfill a number of additional conditions. Finally the Serbian Parliament approved amendments that will allow foreigners to obtain a residence permit and a work permit at the same time. The validity of a residence permit will increase from one year to three years. Thereafter foreigners will be able to apply for permanent residence and citizenship.

Meanwhile Montenegro, neighboring country to Serbia, plans to tighten the requirements for issuing a residence permit both for opening a company and for buying real estate. Local officials are unable to cope with the load in the face of increased demand. And the Montenegrin investment citizenship program stopped accepting new applications at the end of 2022. They are currently processing old applications. 

Therefore, Apex Capital Partners has launched a new service.

Now, through APEX, you can securely and legally obtain a residence permit in Serbia for opening a company with full legal support.

And also, APEX will close all questions on finding an office and housing for rent, opening bank accounts. 

This is an opportunity to obtain official status in Europe and get a chance to be in the front row for Citizenship of Serbia when the procedure is launched. And this is a visa-free entry to Schengen and not only.

Serbia is a landlocked country in Southeastern and Central Europe, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Basin and the Balkans. It shares land borders with Hungary to the north, Romania to the northeast, Bulgaria to the southeast, North Macedonia to the south, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the west, and Montenegro to the southwest. Serbian citizens have a visa-free or visa on arrival access to 136 countries and territories.

How to get permanent residency of Serbia? 

To start registration, the applicant will need a minimum set of documents (copies of a passport, a notarized power of attorney – a complete list for all stages of registration upon request). 

Within 15 days after we submit the documents for opening a company, the main applicant will need to visit Serbia. Therefore, the start of registration should be combined in advance with the applicant’s travel schedule. During the first visit, bank accounts for the company will be opened in 3-5 working days. 30 days after registration, the company will need to arrive for the final stage of obtaining a residence permit (Temporary Residence Permint, a sticker in the passport). At this stage, it will be possible to open personal accounts in a local bank. 30 days later, a Work Permit is already issued– you will not need to come to Serbia.
