In the last couple of days local Kosovar media have issued reports that People’s Republic of China recognizes passports of Republic of Kosovo. KosovoThanksYou team is attempting to acquire solid proof of this, either by attaining a Chinese visa or by receiving a scanned version of the issued visa.
Although there were reports of Kosovars traveling to China even before last week, to date there has been no proof sent to our website.
A condition for a country to appear in the list of countries that unofficially recognize the Kosovo passports is to either have a scanned version of the passport page containing the entry stamp or visa, or an email from the country’s authorities stating that passports are recognized.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kosovo confirmed that the Dominican Republic has recognized the Republic of Kosovo as an independent state.
The recognition was confirmed by the Dominican Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and was announced on July 10th. “The Government of the Dominican Republic, based on the constitutional authority and in line with policies and international laws for recognition of states has decided to recognize the independent Republic of Kosovo,” says in the letter sent to Foreign Ministry of the Republic of Kosovo.
This decision was first announced by the leader of the New Kosovo Allience (AKR), Behgjet Pacolli who visited the region of Central America including the Dominican Republic a few weeks ago.
We would like to thank the people of Dominican Republic for their support and recognition and look forward to forging closer relations with the Caribbean Republic.
