Albania Lifts COVID Entry Requirements for Foreign Visitors

Albania has become the latest country in the Western Balkans to remove all COVID-related entry requirements for foreign visitors.

Starting May 1, travelers coming to Albania will no longer need to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to enter the country.

During a government meeting last week, Rama’s cabinet had contemplated asking the committee of experts on the pandemic to lift these requirements after it approved visa-free travel for an additional eight countries.

On Tuesday, the committee also announced that masks will no longer be required indoors, although they are recommended.

Furthermore, nightclubs and music will be allowed to remain open past 1 p.m. This decision comes after the committee decided to lift a general curfew on March 1.

Senior citizens over sixty years old will also be eligible to receive the fourth dose of the vaccine.

Earlier this month, North Macedonia also announced that it would lift COVID-related entry requirements for foreign visitors.
