The Embassy of Serbia in Cairo announced, on its official website, the Serbian government's decision to approve the entry of Egyptians to its country without a prior visa.

The embassy clarified that this is from last July 30 until September 30, 2022, initially as a trial.

The Serbian government’s decision to enter Egyptians into its territory without visas is one of the fruitful results achieved by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi's visit to Serbia last July and his holding of bilateral and group meetings with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

El-Sisi visited Serbia less than two weeks ago and met there with a number of senior officials, led by Vucic.

This comes after the visit of the Egyptian president to Serbia, where he said that talks with the Serbian president dealt with relations and ways to strengthen the partnership between the two countries.

Last Wednesday, Vučić held a dinner banquet in honor of El-Sisi and his accompanying delegation.

President Sisi met with Ivica Dacic, the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia.

Presidential spokesman Bassam Rady noted that the Serbian National Assembly Speaker welcomed the Egyptian president in Belgrade.

He pointed to the distinguished relations between the Egyptian and Serbian peoples, stressing his country's keenness to support Egypt in its efforts to achieve comprehensive development, which witnessed a great leap during the recent period, and to strengthen the partnership between the two countries in various fields, especially at the parliamentary level.

Rady added that the meeting focused on ways to activate frameworks of joint cooperation and develop bilateral relations between the two countries and push them towards broader horizons during the next stage.
