Travel Forums Europe Serbia vs Kosovo entry stamps

Hi all,

I was wondering what's the situation like now that Kosovo self-declared independence.

If I take the bus from Belgrade to Prishtina, will I get a Kosovo entry stamp in my passport? Will this affect my return into general Serbia?

Thanks,
Z

If you take a bus from Belgrade to Pristina you will certainly get Serbian stamp in your passport and maybe UNMIK or Kosovo stamp as well (not quite sure how the administrative border in north Kosovo works now). Anyway, you won't have any problems "entering" Serbia again, as, strictly speaking, you never left it. If you enter Kosovo from other country first and don't have Serbian entry stamp than you will be in Serbia illigally and, therefore, will not be able to travel anywhere outside Kosovo.

Thanks adaziv! I hope having the Serbian authorities will not have any problems with a Kosovo stamp though....

There should be no problems as I follow the news from that part of the world regularly and am pretty sure that this is the situation. Btw, if you need any advice on where to go, what to see let me know.
