EU Adopts Visa-Free Travel for Kosovo

Visa-free travel for Kosovar passport holders will become a reality on 1 January 2024 at the latest.

Following an agreement between the European Parliament and the Council on a proposal by the European Commission, passport holders from Kosovo will be allowed to travel to the EU without a visa, for maximum 90 days in any 180-day period.

Visa-free travel brings key benefits for citizens on both sides, strengthening further the EU relations with Kosovo.

Kosovo has consistently fulfilled all benchmarks and continuously shown its commitment. With this achievement, all Western Balkan partners will soon have visa-free access to the EU.

Already in 2016, the European Commission proposed to the European Parliament and the Council to grant EU visa-free travel for the people of Kosovo. The European Commission assessed that Kosovo fulfilled all requirements since 2018, fulfilling all the benchmarks set in the Visa Liberalisation Roadmap.
