Consular days in Cleveland were held on September 1 and 2 during the "Srbijada 2018" event. The event was held at the property of the Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Sava.
The Consulate General had its own stand at which the "Srbijada" visitors had the opportunity to talk to the representatives of the Consulate General and receive answers to questions pertaining to consular services. The most frequent issues were related to the provision of consular services - issuance of passports, admission to citizenship, birth registration, marriage registration, customs privileges, and more.
At the stand visitors had the opportunity to get tourist promotional material, brochures about investing in Serbia and others. Hundreds of people visited the Consulate General stand.
"Srbijada" is a traditional event that has been held since 1993 and which brings together the Serbian community from the entire North American continent. It holds a tournament of Serbian football clubs from the territory of the USA and Canada. Over 50 Serbian football clubs participated in this year's "Srbijada". The host of "Srbijada 2018" was the club "Karadjordje" from Cleveland.


In the period from July 25 to July 28, 2018, several manifestations were held in Washington, D.C. marking the 100th anniversary of the alliance between Serbia and the United States. On July 28, 1918, the  US President Wilson issued a Proclamation when, as a sign of gratitude to the Serbian people and their Army for the contribution in the First World War the flag of Serbia flew over the White House and other institutions in Washington. The organizers of the anniversary are the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in Washington, the Serbian Orthodox Church in the United States and representatives of Serbian organizations and the Serbian community in the United States.

On the occasion of this meaningful anniversary, a reception was held at the US Congress, attended by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia, Ivica Dačić as well as the President of the Government of the Republic of Srpska, Željka Cvijanović.  The attendees were addressed by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić, Serbian Caucus Co-Chair Ted Po, Sen. Ron Johnson, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Lora Cooper and Bishop Irinej of Eastern-America. The significance of this anniversary celebration, as well as readiness for further improvement of the bilateral relations between Serbia and the United States, was emphasized on this occasion. President of the Government Ana Brnabić handed the medal from the President of the Republic, Aleksandar Vučić to Congressman Ted Po which was awarded him in gratitude for his contribution in strengthening ties between Serbia and the United States.

Bishop Irinej of Eastern-America held a prayer at the US Congress, after which members of the Serbian-American community in the United States were able to meet with their representatives in the Congress. A symposium was held at the National Press Club in Washington with the participation of several lecturers who spoke about the alliance between the American and Serbian people during the First World War, as well as the contribution of the Serbian army and the Serbian people - especially the participation and contribution of Serbs from America  - in achieving the great victory. The exhibition "There, Far Away: 1918 - 2018" was presented.

Following the reception organized by the Republika Srpska Office and with the participation of the President of the Government of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović, a concert of the String Quartet of the School for Music Talents from Ćuprija, Serbia was performed at the Karnegi Science Institute in Washington,  as well as the Serbian Singing Society "Lira" from the St. Luke Serbian Orthodox Church from Washington DC. The All-Orthodox liturgy and memorial to the victims of the war were held at the Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Nicholas in Washington. The final event was a gala dinner held at the National Press Club in Washington.

The Consulate General is organizing the Consular Day on Suturday, September 29, 2018 during the Serbian Festival at the Serbian Orthodox Church St. Petka in San Marcos (1854 Knob Hill Road, San Marcos, CA 92069).

The representatives of the Consulate General will be present in the said church on September 29 and will be able to receive all possible consular requests and answer questions regarding consular services. This does not apply to the application for a passport, because these requests can only be submitted at the premises of the Consulate General.

Please note that on this occasion it will be possible to sign and verify the authorizations, especially those related to the inheritance rights and real estate in Serbia. For the verification of the given authorizations in the prescribed form it is necessary that the text of the authorization be submitted in advance in WORD format, written in Serbian, Cyrillic script, to e-mail: info@scgchicago.org. At the same time it is necessary to provide a copy of the valid identification document (valid passport of the Republic of Serbia). If the authorization holder does not have a valid passport of the Republic of Serbia, it is necessary to provide a copy of the US valid identification document (passport, green card or driver's license). Upon receipt of an e-mail with the specified documents, the Consulate General will provide instructions regarding the payment of consular fees.

We emphasize that authentication of documents will not be possible on site if they have not been previously delivered in the manner described above. Additional information regarding the verification of documents can be found here.

We invite citizens of the Republic of Serbia in California and the neighboring states to use this opportunity and verify the necessary documents or meet with the representatives of the Consulate General for issues of consular services.
