Re: Driving from France to Prizren: visa requirements

Hi Thomas,

We are in the process of making an agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
so that we may send a list of people needing a visa and a copy of their documents,
then they will confirm it and ask for people to send their passport via post to the embassy in Istanbul or consulate in New York.
This process has not ended, this is why we have not updated the website yet. It will be known soon.
Unfortunately, this is the only way we can deal with it. The Republic of Kosovo does not issue visas upon arrival, we asked about this
and it is not possible.

Regarding information about European countries visa requirements, you think we should have information about that?
If so, then we will surfe their official websites and make a guide.

Hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,

I probably will drive from France (next to Geneva) to Prizen, because it
may be cheaper and easier this way (compared to fligh + rent a car, and
since I'm planning to come with all of my family).

As the Adriatic Sea side is a very nice thing to watch during the
travel, I've thought about a route going like this do:

France -> Milan -> Venice -> Slovania -> Coratia -> Montenegro ->
Albania -> Prizren.

The problem is that each country must have a different visa requirement.
For me and my kids, it should be ok, but for my wife, with a Chinese
passport, it should be more complicated.

Do you have any idea what are the (pass over?) visa requirements for
these countries? Do they deliver the visa at the border?

If it's too complicated, another option is to go south in Italy, and
take a boat from Bari to Durres in Albania, in which case we would only
cross Albania. But we would then miss the nice Croatia sea views...

Also, is there somewhere the visa requirements for Kosovo in the wiki? I
couldn't find it... The page over here:

only lists countries that don't need visas, and points to the root of
https://www.mfa-ks.net/ without even a specific URL. Finding my way on
that site, I get to this URL:

which ... doesn't work on Firefox. Then I tried with Chromium, which
lead me to the following text:

 > Visas may be obtained from diplomatic and consular posts of Kosovo in:
 > Tirana, Albania
 > Ambasada e Republikës së Kosovës në Tiranë
 > Rr. Donika Kastrioti, Vila nr 6, Tiranë
 > E-mail : visa.al@rks-gov.net
 > http://www.ambasada-ks.net/al/
 > Istanbul, Turkey
 > Konsullata e Përgjithshme e Republikës së Kosovës në Stamboll
 > Vali Konağı Cad. No: 74 D 3
 > Nişantaşı, İstanbul / Turkey
 > E-mail: visa.ist@rks-gov.net
 > http://www.ambasada-ks.net/tr/

Not very helpful, we live next to Geneva.

So, what does this mean? How does it work? Sorry to say thing this way,
but I do expect *MORE* information from the local debconf team, and it
disappoints me that I may not be the only one finding it hard to
understand how all of this work...

Your thoughts?
