Debit Card Options

You can get a debit card at virtually any Serbian bank even if you are not a resident.

Cards are provided to individuals and legal entities. The only possible obstacle is that you have to appear in person to open a personal account and receive a debit card from the bank.

You will need:

  1. a completed card application (in Serbian)
  2. an ID (a passport and a residence permit)
  3. an account opened with the selected bank (and a full set of documents required for this).

Banks in Serbia can offer you a number of payment systems:

  • VISA
  • MasterCard
  • DinaCard (national payment system). This option may be of interest to those who get their salary in Serbia, including people working remotely for a local company. The only currency available is dinars.

The list of cards and their subtypes may vary depending on the selected bank.

Choose a bank product only after you clarify all the details, possibilities and conditions associated with services provided by the bank. For example, not all banks will connect your debit card to an online/mobile banking service. You can also get an anonymous debit card.
