Visa & Passport Requirements for Albania

EuropeAlbaniaVisa & Passport Requirements for Albania

Foreigners entering Albania are no longer required to get a visa.

Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Brunei, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Mauritius, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, El Salvador, Seychelles, St. Kitts and Nevis, Uruguay, Venezuela, Macao are among the countries whose residents may visit the Schengen region without a visa (China). They must get a visa type D if they want to remain for more than 90 days during a six-month period.

For the first 60 days of your stay, there is a €1 road charge. It is €1 per day for each extra day. Make careful to get a receipt and keep it with you, since guards may ask for it as evidence of purchase when you leave the country. The previous €10 per person entry charge has been eliminated. The Albanian guards are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to assist you. They may sometimes allow costs to be paid in dollars or even forget to charge you. It’s a good idea to have some Euros with you since customs officials at Mother Teresa Airport don’t provide change.

When leaving the nation, take care not to be charged the €1 road tax again. In such scenario, the border officer will presume you did not pay the road tax when you entered the nation.
