ISSUANCE OF A PASSPORT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
The Consulate General of the Republic of Serbia in Toronto, upon receipt of a request for issuance of a passport of the Republic of Serbia, has so far accepted Birth Certificates issued in the former republics of the SFRY, for persons who did not sign in birth registers of the Republic of Serbia.
Bearing in mind that in the coming period 2018-2019. we expect an increase in the number of requests for replacing the passports of the Republic of Serbia, we inform you that, if you haven’t sign in the registry of births of the Republic of Serbia, do so without delay, as the police administrations that are handling passport’s requests, in accordance with the passport requirements, will request the information about the registration of birth in the Birth Registrar of Republic of Serbia.
HEREDITARY STATEMENTS AND POWER OF ATTORNEYS
Bearing in mind that for the verification of hereditary statements and power of attorneys whose object is the real estate transfer, a number of clients continue to address Canadian public notaries, please be advised that due to changes in the procedure, the inheritance statement regarding the estate processes in Serbia, as well as power of attorney for real estate (purchase, gift, etc.) can, in the territory of Canada, be authenticated only at the General Consulate of the Republic of Serbia in Toronto and the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in Ottawa.
