The Republic of Kosovo will issue passports beginning 18 August 2008. These passports differ from UNMIK passports issued during the interim administration of Kosovo by the United Nations. Unidenitified sources states that countries which do not recognize Kosovo’s independence (such as Montenegro and Macedonia) will accept these passports.
According to a leaked copy of the design obtained by Balkan Insight, the cover of the new Kosovo passport will be dark blue, with the official coat of arms and the word “passport” written in the Albanian, Serbian and English languages (“Kosovo to Issue Passports from July 18,” Balkan Insight, 9 July 2008).
