Çuçi visits Kosovo: Unique residence permit with online application, free movement for border zone areas and a new crossing point in Shishtavec

The Minister of Interior, Bledi Çuçi, paid an official visit to Kosovo. During the meeting with his counterpart, Xhelal Sveçla, issues of mutual interest of our two countries were on focus, mainly those related to the movement of people across border crossings, unique residence permits and the fight against organized crime.

"There will be no waiting at the counters for Albanians across the border, who want to be provided with a residence permit.There will also be free movement for residents along the border strip of the two states. It is also important to open a new border point in Shishtavec, to help increase the flow of people and goods between Albania and Kosovo ", said Minister Çuçi.

The two ministers reconfirmed the common will to further deepen police cooperation between the two countries, so that, as Minister Çuçi said, we are on a front when it comes to the fight against organized crime. Focusing on innovation and technology in the field of security, Minister Çuçi acquainted the Kosovar counterpart with the ambition of Albania to make a big leap in this direction starting from next year where almost half of the investment budget will go to technology and modern equipment needed by police structures.

"The advantages brought by these new technological systems will be used in the border crossing points of our countries, to process faster the movement of people and goods", said the Minister of Interior, Bledi Çuçi.
