Requirements for Serbians

France is the most visited country in the world with close to 90 million tourists each year who come to visit its cities of cultural interest such as Paris, Lyon, and Strasbourg, ski resorts, beaches, picturesque villages, and more. France is also home to 37 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Currently, Serbians traveling to France for tourism or business purposes do not need a visa. Starting from the end of 2022, however, citizens from 60 countries including Serbia will be required to obtain travel authorization with a maximum validity of 90 days prior to their trip. ETIAS visa waiver for France will be introduced in order to pre-screen any security threats to the country.
