Available. All residents of Serbia who have reached their eighteenth birthday must carry an identity card (Licna Karta) issued by the Secretariat for Internal Affairs (Sekretarijat za Unutrasnje Poslove). In 2009, Serbia started issuing a new ID card which is the same shape and size as many other European ID cards. As specified by the ISO/IEC 7810 standards, it contains all required security features such as having a machine readable zone, biodata with digital photo integrated in the card, and the bearers signature and fingerprint printed on the card and chip.
Available. Citizens of Serbia may obtain police certificates (Izvod iz kaznjene evidencije) from the Ministry for Internal Affairs (MUP - Ministarstvo unutrasnjih poslova); that is, the police authority, at a person's permanent residence. For citizens born in a different district from where they reside, the police authority will request information from the person's town of birth, and the response time will vary. Based on input from the place of birth, police at the place of residence will issue the final official version of the certificate.
The police certificate documents whether the applicant has been convicted of any crimes and the articles of law involved. Note that in many cases, convictions can be expunged after ten years. Thus, the record may not be complete beyond ten years, but it is the best and only record available. It should include any convictions in other former Yugoslav republics prior to their independence, so that if someone lived in one of those republics after their independence they must also obtain a police record from that country. This certificate should not be confused with the certificates issued by courts (Sudsko uverenje) that cover only that specific court and indicate the absence of any current investigation, charge or conviction in that period.
NOTE : A second party, such as the Embassy, may not request police certificates on individuals to independently verify someone's background. Consular officers must rely on certificates requested by the individual in person. The potential for fraudulent documentation exists, but is not common; if there is doubt about the authenticity of the certificate, the police station that issued it can usually confirm whether a document it purportedly issued is authentic.
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, non-citizens who once resided in Serbia, and are now in their native country, may apply for police certificates with their local Ministry of Foreign Affairs who will then, through diplomatic channels, contact the Embassy of Serbia in that country.
Non-citizens who once resided in Serbia, and are in a third country now, may apply with their Embassy in that country, who will then, through diplomatic channels, contact the Embassy of Serbia.
Available. A statement of the time spent in a correctional institution can be obtained from the prison in which a person was confined. It does not contain a report of his demeanor during imprisonment.
The current Serbian passport is dark red with gold lettering and a crest on the front. "Republic of Serbia" and "passport" are printed in Serbian Cyrillic only. The passport meets modern security standards, including a plasticized biodata page that has an electronic chip inside. The nationality code for this passport is SBA.
The civil registrar having jurisdiction over a person's residence will issue a certificate (uverenje) stating that the applicant is not married.
Note: Non-residents must apply for these documents through a Serbian diplomatic mission. They are unlikely to receive a reply if they write directly to the issuing office. Serbian consular offices throughout the world are supplied with the appropriate forms for obtaining civil documents. The request will be forwarded to the Serbia Ministry of of Foreign Affairs for transmission to the office responsible for the issuance of the required document. The document will then be returned to the applicant via the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Diplomatic Mission of Serbia overseas.
The above procedure can be lengthy. All applicants are encouraged to obtain the required documents through a family member, friend or lawyer residing in Serbia, who could apply personally at the office which issues them.
