Kosovo's new visa exemption for nationals of the United Arab Emirates discussed
Nationals of the UAE will soon be able to enter Kosovo using only their valid passport, without a Type C Visa, for business, tourism or cultural exchange purposes for up to 90 days cumulatively within a 180-day period. The change will take place as soon as the Memorandum of Understanding between both countries enters into force, which is expected in February 2024. The visa exemption applies to holders of ordinary, diplomatic, special and mission passports issued by the UAE. In addition, nationals of Kosovo who hold ordinary, diplomatic, special and mission passports, will be able to enter the UAE for business, tourism and cultural exchange purposes without a visa and stay in the country for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.
