Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selaković and his Hungarian counterpart, Péter Szijjártó on Thursday agreed to accept and recognise all vaccine certificates, regardless of which vaccine was received.

According to the Serbian ministry of foreign affairs, Selaković pointed out that the agreement would come into force Friday, enabling vaccinated citizens of the two countries to move freely between Serbia to Hungary without a previously performed PCR test and quarantine.

“I had the opportunity to talk on the phone with my Hungarian counterpart, Péter Szijjártó, and in that way we harmonised an agreement between the two countries that will enter into force as early as tomorrow and enable vaccinated Serbian citizens to go to Hungary and also vaccinated Hungarian citizens to freely come to Serbia”, Selaković has said, as reported by the foreign affairs ministry.

All services that require the vaccine in Hungary would be available to Serbian citizens who are vaccinated and have a certificate, the ministry added.
