The Netherlands against Kosovo’s Visa Liberalisation

The government of the Netherlands still remains against Kosovo’s Visa Liberalisation because they think that Kosovo is still part of corruption affairs and crimes.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, ”Visa liberalisation is a technical, standards-driven process in which a country must meet all the prerequisites before the Council can decide to abolish visas.” The ministry is a huge believer that Kosovo is part of corruption and crimes, which is why there is a lack of support in regards to the process of liberalisation.

Moreover, the Ministry also shows that ”During the last discussion on this issue in 2018, the Netherlands concluded that the Commission’s confirmation of Kosovo’s history against the high level of corruption and organized crime as defined in the Commission’s report was still not convincing enough.”

Kosovo celebrated its 13th independence anniversary, in which Peter Byer – the German member of Bundestag and Transatlantic Coordinator of the Federal Government, made a plea for the European authorities to permit visa-free entry for Kosovo and its citizens in the near future.

it has been 9 years since Kosovo has requested an agreement for the EU visa liberalisation so that its citizens can easily travel.

Despite the fact the the European Commission stated that Kosovo met all the conditions in regards to the visa-free travel with the EU since July 2018, this process remains unresolved for 3 years now.
