Kosovo: entry and exit regulations

Formalities, visas

Entry into Kosovo is visa-free both by land and by air. Since no entry stamps are issued by the Serbian authorities at the administrative border between Kosovo and Serbia, leaving Kosovo via Serbia is only possible if the entry has been made by land via Serbia beforehand and the total travel time does not exceed 3 months. Staying in or transit through Serbia without a regular entry stamp constitutes a violation of Serbian immigration law and can lead to arrest.
