, Serbians must prove they are safe to travel to the Schengen area. This is based on

answer the questions detailed in this section and have a favourable cross-check with
Interpol databases to do so.
To show their safe background, Serbian’s must confirm they have no serious
within the 15 years before their planned travel to Europe. The period is understandably
longer for terrorist convictions at 25 years. Part of showing a lack of radical militancy
is also in confirming the Serbian has not travelled to conflict zones outside of work with
the official Serbian military. Finally, illegal immigration and human trafficking are major
concerns for Europe, which is currently dealing with major migration crises. In light of this,
the Serbian must confirm they have no connections to human trafficking organisations.
Next, Serbians must consider their past activity within EU territory. They must detail any
travel to the Schengen area in the past, and show that they behaved legally while there.
Finally, Serbians must prove their planned travel to the Schengen area will be legal and
well-natured. They must submit a detailed travel itinerary, including how long they will be
in the Schengen area and where they will stay. Serbians must stay within the boundaries of
their travel itinerary at all times.
