Travelers attempting to enter Kosovo on Monday were stopped at the border for failing to meet the new requirement for a third vaccine dose or two doses and a recent negative PCR test.
The government of North Macedonia, the Municipality of Bujanoc in Serbia, as well as citizens traveling from Albania have demanded the Kosovo government to review its decision and allow travel with just two vaccine doses.
Kosovo tightened travel measures last weekend as it recorded the highest number of daily COVID-19 cases – 2,943 on Friday.
Measures for the next two weeks include a curfew from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m, while restaurants and cafés will close at 9 p.m.
A group of travelers from Albania staged a small protest at the border on Monday, but the government has stated measures will be reviewed only after two weeks.
