Passport / Visa

Kosovo can be entered visa-free by citizens of the EU and/or Schengen Agreement member states, as well as citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa, and the majority of South American countries. Citizens of some Asian and African countries may need to apply for a visa. Important travel notice: if you are continuing on to Serbia after your stay in Kosovo, make sure your original entry point to Kosovo is through Serbia. This means, entry to Serbia may be refused to travellers transiting through Kosovo who first arrive in Macedonia, Albania, or Montenegro. Check whether or not visa is required for you at:

Best Time to Visit

Summers can get very hot and winters very cold in Pristina, but temperatures are rarely at their extremes. Even though summers tend to be on the hot side, July through September remain the height of tourist season. For guaranteed pleasant temperatures appropriate for city exploration, aim for June or late September. Those looking to continue on to the slopes of Brezovica may find December through March bring the best skiing conditions, while May through September are good for mountain hiking.

Post

The PTK postal company runs a relatively reliable service in Kosovo. Still, some mail has been reported not to arrive due to the sporadic changes to addresses and street names that sometimes occur. To be on the safe side, avoid mailing goods of high value. There are two types of letters: regular and priority, the latter are more expensive but give the sender access to tracking their mail. Private carriers like DHL, UPS, and FedEx also operate in Kosovo. PTK FILATELIA: UÇK p.n, 10000 Pristina Kosovo Tel: +381 38 246 770

Although a country code +383 was finally assigned to Kosovo in 2016, you will find many phone numbers still listed with an international phone code of Monaco (+377), Slovenia (+386) or Serbia (+381). There is even a phone app (developed by Google) designed specifically to automatically convert pre-entered numbers starting with the above mentioned codes into the new +383. All old codes are planned to be replaced by the newly assigned one soon, following the lead of Vala operator already supporting it. IPKO may still use the Slovenian code (+386) in some instances, and Serbian +381 is for landlines. The area code of Pristina is +38.
