Foreign currency, credit and debit cards and foreign currency cheques may be freely taken into Serbia. Credit cards and securities obtained in accordance with the regulations may be freely taken out of the country.
Foreign citizens may carry in unlimited sums of foreign currency, and may take out up to 2000 EUR. Travellers should report the amount of foreign currency that they are taking into the country to a customs officer in order to obtain a receipt on the basis of which they may take this same sum out when exiting the country for the first time. They may carry out foreign currency that they have withdrawn from their foreign currency account in Serbia, when accompanied by a bank receipt. Dinars may be taken in and out up to an amount of 120,000 dinars per person, in 1000 dinar notes or smaller, while an amount greater than 120,000 dinars may only be carried in if the dinars have been bought in a foreign bank and are accompanied by a receipt from that bank. If foreign currency, dinars and travellers cheques are being carried out simultaneously, their sum must not exceed 2000 EUR.
