Numerous amendments to the Law on Foreigners and the Law on Employment of Foreigners entered into force on May 7, 2019, whereby certain provisions had been applicable as of January 1, 2019, are both expected to make Serbia an increasingly attractive place for the employment of foreigners and to encourage foreign investments in Serbia, which we discussed in detail in our blog post on the Amendments to the Law on Foreigners.
The general idea behind the amendments was to improve the business climate in Serbia by facilitating the process of obtaining temporary residence permits and work permits in Serbia.
Specifically, temporary residence and work permits are common for all foreigners who work in Serbia, but what distinguishes them is the legal ground on which they are based.
An analysis of the implementation of the Law on Employment of Foreigners has shown that so far, among different types of work permits, the largest number issued by the National Employment Service is the work permit for employment.
More precisely, the most sought-after are work permits for persons seconded to work in Serbia, who are employed by a foreign company.
For that reason, the secondment of foreigners to Serbia will be the main topic discussed in this blog.
