State Department: Serbia and Montenegro - Consular Information Sheet, October 7, 1992


Serbia and Montenegro - Consular Information Sheet
October 7, 1992

Embassy Location: The U.S. Embassy in Belgrade is located at Kneza Milosa 50, tel. (38)(11) 645-655.

Country Description: Serbia and Montenegro are former republics of Yugoslavia which, although moderately developed, currently suffers shortages of critical material such as gasoline, due to United Nations economic sanctions against Serbia and Montenegro. There are long delays at the border when entering the country by car. Because of U.S. economic sanctions, U.S. operations of JAT, the Yugoslav national airline, have been suspended. There are no international flights into or out of Belgrade.

Entry Requirements: Entry permission is granted at entry points with no prior visa required. The "Federal Republic of Yugoslavia", ("F.R.Y.") which claims to be the sole successor of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, is not recognized by the United States. The "F.R.Y." maintains an office at 2410 California Street N.W., Washington DC 20008, tel: (202) 462-6566, which travelers can contact for updated entry requirements.

Areas of Instability: Sporadic warfare, which can become quite intense, continues along the border areas with Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina.

Medical Facilities: Medical facilities are limited. Most medicines are unobtainable. U.S. medical insurance is not always valid outside the United States. Travelers have found that in some cases, supplemental medical insurance with specific overseas coverage has proved to be useful. Further information on health matters can be obtained from the Centers for Disease Control's international travelers hotline on (404) 332-4559.

Crime Information: Crime has increased in recent months, particularly near train and bus stations and on trains. The Department of State's pamphlet "A Safe Trip Abroad" is available from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402. It provides useful information on guarding valuables and protecting personal security while traveling abroad.

Commercial Regulations: U.S. economic sanctions on Yugoslavia prohibit imports, exports and all other commercial transactions that are not humanitarian in nature. For further information, travelers can contact the Office of Foreign Assets Control at the Treasury Department.

Other Information: In compliance with a U.N. resolution mandating the reduction of Embassy staffs, the Department of State has reduced the size of its mission in Belgrade and has authorized the voluntary departure from Belgrade of non-essential personnel and dependents of U.S. government employees. Assistance to U.S. citizens may therefore be limited.

Drug Penalties: Penalties for possession, use and trafficking in illegal drugs are strict, and convicted offenders can expect jail sentences and fines.

Registration: U.S. citizens who visit or remain in Serbia and Montenegro can obtain updated information on travel and security when they register at the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade.
