There are 3 main Phone operators in Serbia. Telenor, MTS Telekom and VIP. They all offer Prepaid and Postpaid deals. If you are a Belgrade Expat then we suggest you to get a postpaid deal. Its overall cheaper. No inconvenience. For the postpaid deal like in any other country you will have to have a residency in Serbia. If you do not have a residency but still want a postpaid then get your local buddy to register under his name. Make sure to pay your monthly bills on time though. If you get a prepaid and then decide to stay in Belgrade you all good. You can easily switch from Prepaid to Postpaid and keep your number. Where to get Serbian Tourist SIM Card?
Where to get Serbian SIM Card for Tourists?
If you are not in a big hurry as soon as you arrive at the airport you can easily proceed over the counter. Sometimes you can even choose your number. Choosing a number is free of charge. You will need your passport on you. As well as some other details. Its super easy and straight forward. At the Belgrade Airport Staff speak English fluently. If you are visiting Belgrade by car or you forgot to buy a Card at the airport no worry. You can get it at almost any corner. Local stores that sell Newspapers are named Kiosks. Those stores are located in the city center as well around the city. To get your Card in Kiosk prepare yourself to chit chat a bit on Serbian Language. Do not expect that local person who works in a Kiosk will be fluent in English. Its not realistic. Make sure to have your passport on you.
Notice: We have heard that sometimes Tourists got a CARD without a passport. We are not sure is that a correct info. Better have your passport on you when you get your Serbian Tourist Sim Card.
