The citizens of Kosovo should be able to travel to the EU for short periods visa-free, according to the European Parliament.

Plenary confirmed on Thursday, with 331 votes to 126 and 12 abstentions, its negotiating position on this matter -already adopted in September 2018-, in view of the end of the legislature. The proposal needed the agreement of both Parliament and the Council, but since the latter did not have a position, there were no negotiations.

Following the abolition of visas for the citizens of North Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia in 2009 and for Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2010, Kosovo is the only Balkan country whose citizens still need a visa to travel to the EU.
