UNMIK issues various identification and travel documents for residents of Kosovo. A habitual resident of Kosovo who has an UNMIK Identification card may apply for an UNMIK Travel Document in their municipality of registration. Over one million ID cards have been issued.

UNMIK Travel Document

This is a booklet type document with a validity of two years. It costs 60 DM and takes approximately one month to process abroad. There is presently no UNMIK Travel Document issued for children, although there is a plan to address this.

UNMIK Travel Documents are accepted in the following countries: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA.

Temporary Travel Document

A Temporary Travel Document is a one-trip document issued in very exceptional situations. Most countries except in extraordinary situations such as emergency medical treatment do not accept it. It is no longer issued to residents of countries such as Switzerland, Italy or Germany who return to Kosovo for visits, as these countries do not accept them for their return travel. There is no charge for Temporary Travel Documents, and applications are taken at the Police Station Number Four container offices in Dardania. They are processed on one day. Temporary Travel Documents will not be issued to anyone who attempts to travel with a false or altered FRY passport, and any visas in such documents are forfeited.
