Data for this infographics are taken from the report "The visa business: Report on the cost of visas for Kosovars in the period 2010-2012" published in May 2013.
Kosovo remains far from fulfulling the visa liberalization criteria, hence Kosovars will contrinue to spend huge sums money even during year 2013. If we look at the visa application trend since year 2010, we can expect that even in 2013 more than 65,000 Kosovars to apply for visas and spend at minimum another 4.5 milion of euros.
