EU to discuss visa liberalization for Kosovo

The spokeswoman for the Czech Presidency of the European Union, Eva Hrnčirova, confirmed that the issue of visa liberalization for Kosovo will be on the agenda again during the talks in the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the Governments of Member States to the European Union (COREPER).

“Yes, it will be on the COREPER agenda,” Hrnčirova told Express.

Talks in the European Council about abolishing visas for Kosovo, after visa liberalization was taken off the agenda previously, is a consequence of the situation in the north of Kosovo.

The text of the relevant document was drawn up by the Czech Republic, which currently presides over the EU, after several working group meetings and bilateral talks with countries that had objections.

According to the latest version, which Radio Free Europe had access to, visa-free travel for Kosovo citizens will be possible when the European travel system ETIAS comes into force, on November 1, 2023.

However, in the event that the implementation of this system is delayed, visa liberalization for Kosovo will enter into force on January 1, 2024, at the latest.
