It is strongly recommended that you take a first-aid kit with you that not only contains medicines you need regularly but also medicines for common travel illnesses. Anyone who is dependent on certain medications should have sufficient supplies and proof of their medical prescription with them. You can find more information on taking medication abroad on the website of the Ministry of Social Affairs.
Measles and the West Nile virus appear.
It is recommended that you contact your family doctor or another suitable facility in good time before you start your journey to find out about any vaccinations that may be required. You can also obtain detailed information on common infectious diseases while traveling from the Austrian public health portal or from the tropical medical institutes.
There is a social security agreement with Austria. The European health insurance card (e-card) can be used, but must be presented to the Serbian health insurance company RZFO before treatment.
However, taking out additional insurance for illness and ambulance should be considered. This particularly applies to ambulance flights, which are offered by several Austrian companies.
