If you need to put up/remove traffic signs or signals, contact the Belgrade Road Company (JP Beograd put). If, for filming purposes, you need to close a street in the territory of Belgrade for regular traffic, first obtain the approval of the City Secretariat for Traffic and then contact the Belgrade Road Company (JP Beograd put) which is responsible for signs and signals. The procedure is to write to the Belgrade Road Company (JP Beograd put) enclosing the approval obtained from the Secretariat and identifying your specific requirements. The JP Beograd put services are subject to a payment according to the existing fee scale, unless otherwise designated by the City Secretariat.
To remove vehicles from the street, for filming purposes
If, for filming purposes, it is necessary to remove vehicles from a designated parking space, you need to obtain a permit from the City Secretariat for Traffic (Gradski sekretarijat za saobraćaj), the police, and the communal police, as well as to timely inform local population about the precise duration of filming and designate the leased area. If vehicles are not removed, you should contact the Parking Company (JKP Parking servis) to have them removed. JKP Parking servis charges for this service in accordance with its official pricelist. To remove vehicles from the sidewalk, contact the communal police of the municipality in whose territory parking space has been leased, and to remove vehicles from a traffic lane, contact the City Secretariat for Traffic (Gradski sekretarijat za saobraćaj).
To shoot in public garages owned by the Parking Company (JKP Parking servis).
​Filming may be allowed if JKP Parking servis, in agreement with the production house, determines the time of shooting so as to ensure that operation of the garage is not overly disturbed. There is no charge for leasing the location for filming purposes; you pay for the parking spaces you occupy in a particular time period, namely per hour for the time the crew needs to make necessary arrangements and for filming as such. JKP Parking servis does not provide the electricity required for filming.
To occupy traffic lanes and stop traffic outside city streets, for filming purposes
Apply with Serbian Road Company (JP Putevi Srbije) for approval.

All other roads (class III) fall under the competence of local governments. To obtain the approval, apply with the Serbian Road Company’s Maintenance Division (Sektor za odžavanje - JP Putevi Srbije) in writing. The application must be submitted at least a week in advance and only a stamp duty of RSD 780.00 is payable (always check the exact level of this stamp duty considering that it is subject to change). The applicant may be requested to have the orthography imagery of affected road section appended to the detailed description of the location (www.geosrbija.rs). The obtained approval is then forwarded to the MoI’s Bureau for Cooperation with Media (MUP- Biro za saradnju sa medijima).
