Immigration to Serbia is the entry of people for permanent residence in the Republic of Serbia. Based on the United Nations report Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 2013 Revision, Serbia had an immigrant population of 532,457 (5.6%).[1]

Most immigrants in the country are from elsewhere in the former Yugoslavia.[2] Many Bosnian and Croatian Serbs came to Serbia as refugees during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s. Serbia is also home to smaller numbers of immigrants from various other countries. Regarding the European migrant crisis, Serbia is part of the major transit route in the Balkans.
