I'm a Sri Lankan citizen with a Bulgarian wife and a Bulgarian residence card for family members. I work in Germany and so additionally have a German residence permit.

My wife and I are going from Bulgaria to Sri Lanka via Belgrade and Abu Dhabi. We have a transit in Belgrade of 7h and 30min in both directions, and will remain inside the airport.

Will we need transit visas?

The following info is from Timatic, the database used by airlines:

For your wife:

For Belgrade:

VISA NOT REQUIRED

For Abu Dhabi:

VISA NOT REQUIRED

For Sri Lanka:

Visa required, except for Nationals of Bulgaria can obtain a visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 30 days.

So, your wife needs no visas at all.

For you:

For Belgrade:

Visa required, except for holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours

(you can even leave the airport and visit Belgrade, by presenting your passport and German residence permit)

For Abu Dhabi:

Visa required, except for Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours

For Sri Lanka:

VISA NOT REQUIRED

So you need no visas at all.
