Consulate General of the Republic of Serbia wishes to remind the citizens residing in the United States that when applying for a passport it is no longer necessary to enclose the birth certificate and the certificate of citizenship of the Republic of Serbia. This regulation entered into force in June 2016 and is being applied since then. Data from the registers will be obtained through official channels. When applying for a passport applicant is required to sign a statement that he/she agrees that the necessary data are obtained in this way. The legal deadline for the exchange of data from official records is fifteen days. Details about the request for passport application can be found here.

Regardless of the above, the applicant, if he/she so wishes, may submit the birth certificate and the certificate of citizenship of the Republic of Serbia, not older than one year. In this case, the processing of the request for a passport will be shorter by the time period needed to acquire the data through official channels.

To the Serbian nationals who apply for a passport and at that time declare that the data from the registers be obtained through official channels, Consulate General recommends that they bring with them the old documents if they have them. Data from these documents will be used to fill the application in more detail.

Consulate General notes that Serbian citizens who plan to travel to Serbia during the summer months and want to apply for a new passport at their place of residence there may do so through the  same fast-track procedure. In order to do so it is necessary to present proof of residence abroad which in this case is USA (Green Card or valid US visa).


Consulate General presented an evening of caricatures and animated films by Zoran Jovanovic, a well known cartoonist and animator from Belgrade, whose name appears in the Anthology of the best cartoonists and illustrators as selected by the New York Times.

The best caricatures by Zoran Jovanovic, awarded at the international festivals, were on display including "General with crosses", which marked his professional career. Also presented during the evening were his animated films "Marxians", "Flags", "Antidogmin", "Libertas" and "Crazy Ship".

Acting Consul General introduced the guest who then spoke about the creative process, inspiration, influence of new technologies on the development of cartoons, engagement and experiences during his work and residence in New York. Guests had an opportunity to engage in question and answer session.

Jovanovic's creative achievements were presented at the festivals in Oberhausen, Montreal, Cracow, Sydney, Belgrade, Zagreb, London, Aspen.  Retrospectives of his animated films were held at the cinema houses at Harvard, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa; at cultural centers of Bombay, New Delhi and the Walt Disney Studio.  His works are represented at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York.

Dusan Kovacevic's play "Kumovi / Godfathers" was presented at the cultural center Cervantes in Chicago. The organizers of the presentation of this Serbian play are International Voices Project in collaboration with the Vitalist Theatre and the Consulate General of Serbia in Chicago.

The roles in the play were read by the Vitalist Theatre actors. The play was translated  from Serbian into English language by Dennis Barnett, professor of dramaturgy from Iowa. This was the first presentation of the play "Kumovi/Godfathers" in English.

The play was presented at the Eighth Festival of the International Voices Project, which runs in Chicago from April 17 to May 18, 2017. This is the first time that the Festival has presented a Serbian playwright. In addition to Serbia theater plays presented as part of the Festival were from Spain, Ireland, Finland, Romania, Germany, India, Australia, Wales and Sweden.

Before the beginning of the program, present guests were addressed by Patrizia Lombardi Acerra, Executive Director of the International Voices Project and Acting Consul General Dejan Radulovic, who expressed thanks for the selection of Serbian playwright for the Festival and stressed the role and importance of Dusan Kovacevic in Serbian theater and cinematic arts. After the reading of the play questions of the audience were answered by professor Barnett and actors of the Vitalist Theatre.
