Kosovo citizens can again enter Serbia at the Merdare border, after Belgrade fixed a technical glitch that had delayed crossings for several days.
For three days in a row, hundreds of passengers were stuck at the main Kosovo-Serbia crossing border in Merdare, due to a server problem, creating kilometres-long queues of vehicles at the border, keeping people stuck for hours in cars waiting to cross into Serbia.
Belgrade and Pristina reached an agreement on freedom of movement in July. The deal allows Kosovo citizens to cross into Serbia with ID cards and lets drivers enter Serbia with Kosovo license places and Kosovo driving licenses.
The agreement came into force on December 26. It made it possible for Kosovo citizens to freely enter Serbia for the first time since 1999, when the UN took over administering the former Serbian province.
