Campaign to abolish visa requirement

posted 23 Nov 2010, 04:20 by Serbian Society   [ updated 24 Jan 2011, 02:49 ]
Serbian Society is taking part in a campaign with the Serbian City Club, Serbian Council of GB and Britic magazine    in order to abolish the visa requirement for Serbian visitors coming to the UK on private or business visits, as is the case already in the EU Schengen countries.

If you would like to take part in this campaign, we suggest that you send the attached letter to your MP (after filling    out your name and address, his/her name and your signature). You can find your local MP on the link below (type    in your post code). MP's have an obligation to asnwer each letter from their constituents and this is one of the most    efficient ways to let them know what issues are important to you as a UK tax payer. We believe this is an effective    way to influence the final outcome of the visa regime revision and hope that you will join us in this campaign.
    
Please note you do not have to be a UK citizen to write to your MP, it is enough that you work or rather pay taxes in the UK!

We would like to thank you all for your support with our campaing  and getting in touch with your local MPs, as well as sending us the replies you received. We are continuing with our campaign aiming to make sure image of Serbia and Serbian citizens living in the UK is very positive. Decision regarding abolishing the visa requirement for Serbian visitors coming to the UK will take place during 2011 and as soon as we have any information we will let you know.
