Coming From Romania and would like to know...

9 posts in this topic

Hello all.

I am from Romania and would like to visit your country by car around May.

I understand that you have to register as soon as you cross the border into your conuntry.

1.How can I do this?

2.As I will travel via CouchSurfing I will stay at people. Can I fill in their adresses in the paper?

3.What happens if I do not fill in the info into the paper will they give me a fine when I want to leave the country?

How does this system works?

Please allow me to see a web site about this.

Thank you so much.

If you have Romanian passport you can without visa cross border. Your host must go to at nearest police station with your passport to legalize your stay Serbia untill 12 hours of your coming in Serbia. A foreigner who does not need a visa or a travel document to enter the Republic of Serbia may stay in the country for a maximum period of 90 days, within a timeframe of six months starting from the day of the first entry.

From the gouverment web site

Treba da komuniciraju u lokalnu policijsku stanicu , vaše prisustvo u Srbiji u roku od 24 časa od dolaska u toj državi . Lokalna policija će objaviti dokument na papiru (karton) deklaracija atestiranje boravak . Rumunski državljani se savetuje da imaju i ovaj dokument na njih da se vrate kući , jer postoji mogućnost da se zatraži carinskim organima na graničnom prelazu . Nedostatak dokument kažnjivo novčanom kaznom ili kaznom zatvora smatra se kršenjem zakona o prebivalištem u Srbiji .

1 & 2) If you don't stay in a ho(s)tel it's a bit complicated, since your host would have to go with you to the police station. Sometimes they wouldn't even accept the registration unless the host is also the owner of the flat, depends on the police station in question. If you were staying in a hotel, they would automatically register you, usually electronically, so you'd have no paper attestation anyway. Hotels have 12 hours to submit your registration after your arrival to it (so you don't care about that timeframe), but you have 24 hours to register yourself with the police if you are staying with someone.

3) In reality, it's not so enforced, so huge majority of the people who don't stay in hotels does not register with the police, and police doesn't bother them when they leave the country.

I suppose Serbian police is much like Romanian: in 95% cases they won't make an issue of it, but if they take a pick on you for some reason, they will find anything to fine you (or extort some bribe, but that's much rarer nowadays, as they have harder oversight than before).

(I recall the crazy episode when Romanian border police returned the whole bus of Serbian daily tourists, citing some rule whereby they should have €500 each to enter. Apparently, someone was not kind enough.)

I can confirm what the previous two posters wrote, I had many guests visiting me from abroad without registering at the police and there was never a problem, but still, it is officially the law..

My advice (if you want to stay on the safe side) is to spend your first night in a cheap hotel and move on to CS afterwards. That way you don't have to bug your first host to go with you to the police (you never know, maybe they are busy or have to work)

That would make no difference, as the law states you have to re-register any time you change the accomodation

Really? Wow...

So, then, technically you should also take all of your CS hosts to the police, right?

@Tedk99: Have you considered traveling to North Korea or Turkmenistan instead? It may be easier..    :bag:

Yes, that's correct, the registration form states the length you stay with that person. Since the process is quite complicated for flexible travelers (and their hosts), people just avoid it, and usually all is fine. I know one person who got fined like this (the host, not the guest!), because about two weeks after his guest arrived, they went to the main police station to check how to register - they fined him for being late to do it. If he ignored the procedure in the first place, nothing would have happened :D

Btw, the same rule exists in some other European countries as well, but it's also not enforced
