We would however, recommend you enlist the services of an international moving company and preferably one that also handles shipping of cars. This is will give you peace of mind and see to it that your relocation is as seamless as possible.

Duties when importing your household belongings

At least according to one competent source, household items can be imported without paying duty or tax. To be eligible, you must have purchased them at least six months ago (and been personally using them during this time). Customs also requires that you’ve been residing outside of Serbia for the last 12 months.

If you are fortunate enough to receive duty exemption, then you can’t sell, lend out to others or get rid of these goods within the country. If you have a temporary Residence Permit, then you will only be allowed to temporarily import your belongings. In this case, upon moving away - all items must be taken with you (or be subject to duty) (1).

The International Association of Movers (another well-informed source), isn’t as clear about duty exemption (2). For this reason, it would be an excellent idea to confirm with customs that exemption is possible for your shipments.

Documents when importing your household belongings

A somewhat sizable list of paperwork is required, when bringing household goods into Serbia. This includes a packing list written in Serbian or English and a Letter of Employment. A full record of all the books included in your shipment (which should list both the title and author) is also mandated by customs.

A Certificate of Import also must be shown, and this can be acquired at the police station in your local municipality. A complete list of all electrical goods is necessary as well, including the serial number, company that makes the item and the model number. A temporary Resident Visa good for over 3 months is needed too, along with your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill (3).

A detailed inventory that includes monetary values should be presented, as well as a Power of Attorney (if a third party will be interacting with customs in your stead). Paperwork showing the amount paid to transport your shipment is also compulsory documentation (4).

Duties when importing your vehicle

There are some stipulations imposed by customs, if you wish to receive import duty exemption. First, you must have purchased the vehicle over six months ago. Second, your Residence Permit or Visa must be good for over three months. Finally, customs requires that the vehicle be manufactured less than six years ago. If you meet all of these conditions, it appears that you will be granted exemption.

If you don’t have a Residence Permit for the required timeframe and you didn’t purchase the vehicle over six months ago - then you can still perform a temporary import without paying duty (5). You should also be aware that the International Association of Movers doesn’t concur with this assessment, nowhere mentioning either duties or exemption (6). Again, when there is doubt about duty-free importation policies, you should check with customs directly. Finally, keep in mind that a fee of 3% of the import duties that would have been charged, will apply to duty-free vehicle shipments (7).

Documents when importing your vehicle

Be ready to show your Work Permit, visa and documents confirming residence within the country (presumably a lease agreement or utility bill will suffice). The purchase receipt for the vehicle and certification of the engine displacement are also necessary (8). You’ll need all of the export paperwork issued in your origin country, and inspection documentation verifying that the vehicle meets EURO III technical standards (9).

The vehicle’s title and registration should be provided as well, along with a valid Import Permit. This will be issued by the Institute of Standardization, and you’re instructed to submit an application a minimum of two weeks before the vehicle leaves your origin country. Finally, when bringing a vehicle into Serbia, customs must be given the chassis and engine numbers (10).

This overview is an excellent starting point, when planning your move to Serbia. That said, not every regulation or filing requirement has been covered here. In order to avoid missteps when clearing your belongings through customs, it’s recommended that you speak with them beforehand. Partnering with a reputable international moving company like A1 Auto Transport is also wise - as you certainly don’t want to navigate customs clearance on your own.

Tips on how to make your international move easier


Start packing early to avoid unnecessary delays. In fact, you can begin preparations about 90 days to the day of moving. Start by sorting out your items and arrange them according to size. As you do so, get rid of those things that you do not need. Indeed, you can donate such to charity.

Also, ensure that you pack heavy items such as books in smaller boxes. As for the lighter items such as clothes, use large boxes. By doing so, no box will be too light thus, none will be crushed. Also, label your boxes to enable ease of identification during loading. While at it, encourage your whole family to engage in the activity to make it faster.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods internationally. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.


As an American citizen, you do not need a visa to travel to Serbia for the first 90 days. However, you will need a valid US passport. If you wish to stay longer, contact the Embassy of Serbia for further directions. Find out if you need other documents such as your birth and school certificates.

Banking and insurance

Before you leave, find out if your bank will give you access to your savings while abroad. Also, ensure that your debit and credit cards are valid. Make certain that your bank will handle any regular payments such as an outstanding mortgage.

Also contact your insurance company and ask if your policies are transferable. You can also find out if your health insurance plan is valid abroad. Be sure to ask if you need additional policies such as travel or risk insurance while overseas.

Why you need a professional moving company

As already established, international moving involves a lot of factors coming into play. Obviously, the various tasks involved might be very daunting if handled by an individual. In fact, you face the risk of losing or damaging your valuables.

However, if you hire a professional, you will experience stress-free services. They have the required equipment and trained personnel for the job. They will handle your belongings with care and will ensure that they get to your destination undamaged.

How to find the best international moving company

To get the best mover when looking for Serbia International Moving Services, kindly consider the following:

  • Choose a professional mover that is licensed and has insurance that covers damages on valuables during transit.
  • Compare different rates and choose a company that has a good package at an affordable rate.
  • Read customer reviews online. The more the positive reviews than negative ones, the better the company.
  • Choose a company that offers packing services. This helps to save time.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
