Employment of citizens of the “Open Balkans” without visas and permits as of September
The citizens of Serbia, North Macedonia, and Albania will be able to freely access the unified labour market from September, thanks to the linkage of the national electronic systems of those countries, as part of the “Open Balkans” initiative, said the Director of the Office of the Government of Serbia for IT and e-Government, Mihailo Jovanovic, regarding the employment.
He explained to the “Vecernje Novosti” daily newspaper that citizens will have the opportunity to find employment in one of those three countries without any additional paperwork, labour visas, and special permits.
While talking about the market of information and communication technologies (ICT) in Serbia, Jovanovic said that 92,000 people are currently employed in that field of business, but that the market is still “hungry”, i.e., there is a “huge deficit in that sector”.
“We expect that the export of the ICT sector will exceed 2.5 billion euros this year and it is higher than the export of agriculture,” he said.
