Israel, Kosovo agree to allow each other’s citizens visa-free entry

Citizens of Kosovo and Israel will be able to visit the other nation without a visa following an agreement between the two governments signed today, the Kosovar Foreign Ministry says.

The visa waiver agreement is signed in the Kosovar capital, Pristina, by visiting Interior Minister Moshe Arbel and Kosovar Foreign Minister Donika Gervalla.

Gervalla says the agreement will “open a new chapter in promoting our country, our cooperation and economic development, youngsters’ educational development and the implementation of joint initiatives and projects between our citizens and our countries in the future.”

The visa waiver will go into effect in September. No details on the length of stay are given.

Kosovo and Israel formally established diplomatic ties in February 2021. Israel is the 117th country to recognize Kosovo.
