How long can Kosovo citizens stay in the Schengen area?
According to the new rules, citizens with biometric passports can stay in the Schengen area (which includes Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and all EU member states, except UK and Ireland) for maximum of 90 days from the date of entry within a period of six months (180 days).The period starts from the moment you enter in this area for the first time, within a period of six months. For example, if you enter for the first time in the Schengen area on 1 January, the next six-month period begins on 1 July. If you often travel to the Schengen area, you should count the remaining days of the six-month period. Thus, you can do some short period travels, provided that their duration should not exceed 90 days within a period of six months (180 days).
