20. March 2020.

BelgradeAs of 8 am on Friday, all border crossings in the Republic of Serbia would be closed for passengers traveling by road, rail and river, the President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic announced last night.  

So far, only minor border crossings have been put out of service, while the new decision applies to all border crossings, so that it will be impossible to legally enter the Republic of Serbia in the coming days.

At the same time, this decision does not apply to the transport of goods, which will be able to cross the borders.

“No one will be able to enter Serbia any more”, said the President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic while addressing the citizens.

The President also announced that all long-distance traffic would be abolished from 12 o’clock noon on Friday.

“The last departures of buses and trains must be by 12 o’clock noon”, said President Vucic, adding that the possibility of traveling by car had been left open.

The President also announced that the curfew would be extended and that the public would be informed of it prior to the beginning of the weekend.
