It means this step (day 1) we do without your presence. On another hand, it means that we first need to make Power of Attorney, send to you by email, you verify it in your country and send to us by DHL/Fedex/post, we translate it in Serbia and we sign documents at notary instead of you.

In that case, owner of the company does not need to come to Serbia at all. Director of the company needs to come at least for bank account opening and taking the digital signature. Digital signature can be taken only personally, it can not be taken by somebody else with any kind of Power of Attorney.
