I understand that it might be too soon to answer those questions, or
that maybe we can be optimistic and assume the best case scenario by
default. But still we must be prepared for it to go wrong, so we should
probably define a deadline for a go/no-go decision so people can make
plans.  If the worse happens and it can't happen again, we need to know
that well in advance.

The Kosovo Government has the plan to vaccinate 60% of the population by the end of 2021.
In all likelihood this will be achieved way earlier and more vaccine procurements and

At the same time, entry requirements to Kosovo have been more flexible than in some EU countries
and we expect foreign entries that have been vaccinated or
have had a PCR test to be allowed in by July 2022.
Regarding meetings, they are already allowed and would remain as such if
the pandemic situation does not worsen.
