Serbia adopts new Law on foreigners

In March 2018, Serbia adopted its new Law on Foreigners, which will come into force in October. The new Law introduces some provisions that could improve the situation of undocumented and stateless people in the country. Firstly, it introduces the possibility of postponing the removal from Serbia of individuals whose identity cannot be determined through no fault of their own due to lack of identity documents. If removal is postponed, a temporary ID card may be issued entitling the holder to urgent medical assistance and access to primary education for minors.
