EU ambassador in Albania Luigi Soreca tweeted today in remembrance of the 10 year anniversary of visa liberalization for Albania.
Honored to have contributed to visa liberalisation for #Albanian🇦🇱 citizens 10y ago. The emotions of young & old Albanians entering the #EU🇪🇺for the 1st time without visa will always stay with me. Once pandemic is overcome, all🇦🇱citizens will fully benefit again from free travel. https://t.co/LTNQAN747l

On December 15 2010, the European Parliament’s decision to waive visa requirements for Albanians went into force. Ever since, Albanian citizens have been able to travel freely in the Schengen area.
