As of 1st of January this year, more than 6,000 citizens who have immigrated to Western countries, especially in Germany, returned to Kosovo. This was stated by migration official of the Kosovo Interior Ministry Valon Krasniqi for the Kosovo media “Kosovalive”.
According to him, unlike last year, the number of returnees has increased.
April UNDP report reads that 47 percent of families in Kosovo reported to have members outside the country.
Late last year and early this year, thousands of Kosovo citizens illegally went to EU countries, mainly in Germany, seeking a better life.
