UAE and Serbia adopt safe travel corridor for vaccinated travellers


The UAE and Serbia have adopted a safe travel corridor for vaccinated travellers to come into effect on May 15.

This comes after both nations signed an MoU regarding quarantine-free travel opportunities for those who’ve received the jab.

Passengers will need to prove that they have received their last COVID-19 shot by presenting  vaccination certificates issued by health authorities in order to be able to fly.

The move comes as part of a joint UAE-Serbian cooperation and coordination agreement to press ahead with measures to overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The signing ceremony, held virtually, was attended from the UAE side by Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, and on the Serbian side, by Tatiana Mattek, Minister of Trade, Tourism and Communications.

The step reflects the determination of the leadership of both countries to ease the movement of people and achieve the desired goals of the vaccination campaigns rolled out to ensure the inoculation of all eligible community members.
