Entry Clearances: Kosovo

Volume 508: debated on Thursday 25 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether Kosovan citizens of Serb extraction may enter the UK using passports issued in Belgrade. (323643)

Since 2008, passports issued by the competent Kosovan authorities have been accepted for travel to the United Kingdom (UK). These documents are generally issued by the Kosovan authorities in Pristina. Serbian passports, which are issued by the competent Serbian authorities, are also accepted for travel to the UK.

Both Serbian and Kosovan nationals require visas before travelling to the UK and are subject to immigration control on arrival.

The UK Border Agency is unable to comment on whether Kosovan citizens of Serbian extraction would qualify for a Serbian national passport. This would be a matter for the Serbian authorities.
