Kosovo Travel Advisory

2 min read

Do not travel due to COVID-19. Exercise increased caution due to terrorism. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Read the Department of State’s COVID-19 page before you plan any international travel.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Kosovo due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country. Commercial transportation to/from Kosovo is sporadically available. It may be difficult to enter or leave Kosovo and travelers should expect delays entering Kosovo and/or returning to the United States. Your risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA authorized vaccine.

Before planning any international travel, please review the CDC’s specific recommendations for fully vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers.

Commercial flights are available at reduced levels, schedules change frequently so we recommend you check with the airline and/or travel agency for regular updates.

Visit the Embassy’s COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 and related restrictions and conditions in Kosovo.

Reconsider travel to:

  • North Mitrovica, Leposavic, Zubin Potok, and Zvecan due to the potential for civil unrest due to ethnic tensions.

Country Summary: Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in the Balkans region, including Kosovo. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, local government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, major sporting and cultural events, educational institutions, airports, and other public areas.

Read the country information page.

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in northern Kosovo as U.S. government employee travel to North Mitrovica, Leposavic, Zubin Potok, and Zvecan is restricted.
