ENTRY REGIME FOR CITIZENS OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Citizens of the Republic of Serbia may enter Senegal if they have a valid visa and provided that they present a negative (PCR or serology) test result issued no more than 72 hours earlier. This also applies to passengers who have spent more than 24 hours in transit. Passengers on the plane sign a statement that they have no symptoms of COVID-19 and that they have not been in contact with infected individuals. If the travel is urgent, the passenger may be exempted from PCR or serology testing before departure. This, however, must be indicated in the statement submitted by the airline to competent authorities at Senegalese airports. In that case, the testing is done at the airport at the expense of the passenger. The country can be entered only by flights operated by Air Senegal and Royal Air Maroc airlines.

 

ENTERING AND LEAVING THE COUNTRY

Holders of all types of passports of the Republic of Serbia are required to obtain a visa. The same applies to holders of an emergency travel document in transit. Serbian citizens can submit visa applications to the Embassy of the Republic of Senegal in Berlin (Germany) or any other Senegalese embassy if they are abroad.

USEFUL INFORMATION

HEALTH SITUATION – As of 2007, vaccination is not mandatory but it is recommended against malaria, hepatitis A and yellow fever (although there have been no cases of this disease in Senegal since 2002). More information about the current health situation in this country can be found on the World Health Organization website: https://www.who.int.

SECURITY SITUATION – Visitors can move around freely but should be cautious as several kidnappings of foreigners have been reported. Although the security situation in Senegal is assessed as stable, travelling in regions bordering Mali should be avoided due to possible attacks by Salafist rebels, as well as in areas bordering Mauritania. If travel is necessary, it should not be undertaken at night or on your own. There is a risk of robbery in Dakar; therefore, it is not recommended to wear jewellery or carry large amounts of money.

Walking should be avoided, especially at night. When using a car, it is recommended to keep the windows closed.

TRANSPORT – Senegal has a number of airports, the newest and the most important being Blaise Diagne International Airport in Dakar.

Roads connecting big towns are in good condition. Motorists should pay attention to the driving speed and avoid driving in the period July–October, due to heavy rains. In case of traffic accident in Dakar, please contact the Central Police Commissariat or the Gendarmerie. For other parts of the country, you may contact the nearest police or Gendarmerie station.

OTHER INFORMATION – The currency used in Senegal is the West African CFA franc.

Polite and kind behaviour is recommended at all times.
