Since last Saturday (19 December), nationals of Serbia, Montenegro and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia no longer require a visa to enter the European Union as tourists.
Wishing to mark this new freedom to travel and make it known to ordinary Serbs, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Božidar Djelić, is visiting European capitals with a group of around 50 Serbs. In addition to Berlin, the other ports of call are Rome, Brussels and Paris.
The group led by Deputy Prime Minister Djelić will arrive in Berlin on 23 December. State Secretary Dr Wolf-Ruthart Born will be hosting a reception for the group at the Federal Foreign Office on behalf of Federal Foreign Minister Westerwelle.
