There are very few non-governmental organizations working with  refugees. There is no non-governmental organization working with undocumented migrants, the focus is on asylum seekers. The most prominent organizations include:

  • APC – Asylum protection centre (  – has offered free legal advice to asylum seekers since the creation of the Serbian asylum system in 2008.
