The U.S. will repatriate its citizens and legal permanent residents currently living in Albania who wish to depart the country, following today’s suspension of the only remaining flight from Tirana.
The U.S. Embassy called on Americans and U.S. residents in Albania to immediately contact the embassy to give their information, and be prepared to leave the country on short notice.
If you are a U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident and wish to depart Albania, immediately contact [email protected] with your name, date of birth, passport number and contact information in #Albania.

Three days ago, the embassy issued a warning for those who wanted to leave Albania to immediately arrange a flight through Istanbul.
There is no available information about how long the flight will continue to operate. The Air Albania flight departs Tirana for Istanbul, where you can connect to flights destined for the United States.
