Since there is no extradition agreement between Germany and Kosovo, extraditions are carried out according to the respective general laws. In Germany, the extradition requirements are regulated in the IRG, the Law on International Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters. In 2020, decisions were made on twelve extradition requests from Kosovo to Germany. Two of these requests were rejected, two were granted, and one was terminated out of court.
