Passports and visas
you don’t need a visa to enter Kosovo if you are travelling on a full “British Citizen” passport – but your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay
if you have a different type of British nationality (other than ‘British Citizen’), check entry requirements with the Kosovan Embassy in London before you travel
your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) isn’t valid in Kosovo, so travel insurance is essential, even if you’re only going for one night. It could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties
you must carry ID with you at all times (i.e.: driving licence or a photocopy of your passport)
If you lose your passport, you’ll need to get an Emergency Travel Document from the British Embassy in Pristina
Getting to Fadil Vokrri Stadium

Rr. Enver Zymberi

Fadil Vokrri Stadium is located in the city centre and is a multi-purpose stadium which is the home ground of FC Prishtina and the Kosovo national football team. The stadium holds 12,684 supporters, fully seated.
the stadium is 3 minutes walking distance from the city centre, 9 minutes walking distance from the Fan’s Embassy Info Point and 13 minutes walking distance from the ticket collection point. Parking around the stadium is not allowed on match day as roads will be closed to traffic
taxis are plentiful and cheap by UK standards, although some vehicles may not be in very good condition. Most taxis are metered in Pristina. You should use authorized taxi firms where possible. Vehicles may vary in colour and they are usually clearly marked, and have a “TAXI” sign on the roof
licensed taxis are located outside Pristina “Adem Jashari” International Airport
there are public buses scheduled from and to the airport. You can find more details on the Pristina airport website
At the match
England fans are seated in Sector J1 in the South stand (Gate: J1). All gates have disabled access
access to the stadium can be slow, there will be ticket checks and body searches at check points before entrance to the stadium
get to the stadium early – gates will open at 4pm
fans will be asked to show only match tickets at the gate – ticket touting is an offence in Kosovo
anyone who is obviously drunk won’t be allowed into the stadium
weapons, dangerous items, air horns, fireworks, laser devices, cans, glass bottles, poles, Go Pro cameras, professional cameras and large bags/suitcases aren’t allowed in the stadium
umbrellas are not allowed in the stadium so in the event of rainy weather you are recommended to wear raincoats
smoking is not allowed in the stadium
beer in plastic cups will be sold from portable bars outside the stadium
Helpful tips for local area
You should leave your passports in a hotel safe and use another form of ID: e.g. driving licence or a photocopy of your passport.
You should maintain at least the same level of personal security awareness as in the UK. As in any other city beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, around the town centre and when using public transport – only carry what you need and leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits.
Tap water in Pristina is not drinkable.
