Risk Summary

The principal travel security risk stems from opportunistic street crime such as pickpocketing and bag-snatching. Localised and low-level ethnic clashes between the ethnic-Serb minority and the ethnic-Albanian majority as well as isolated disturbances between ethnic Serbs and NATO/EULEX personnel can occur periodically, in particular in the northern areas around the ethnically divided city of Mitrovica.

Organised crime is common; weapons remain widely available and turf wars between criminal groups occasionally turn violent. However, such activity is unlikely to directly affect business travellers. Overland travel poses a major risk due to poor infrastructure and road safety standards; therefore, travellers should not self-drive.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
