Albanians visiting Schengen countries for tourism purposes are permitted to stay for up to 90 days and required to exit the Schengen Area once the allotted stay runs out. Tourists from Albania must then remain outside the Schengen Zone until the 180-day period is over and they are, once more, granted a new 90-day stay in Schengen countries.
Citizens of Albania who wish to relocate to Albania or stay there for more than 90 days within a 180-day period are advised to visit the embassy or consulate of the country they plan to stay in. Visiting an embassy will help Albanians get the information they need regarding the appropriate visa type for their particular situation. The visa type may vary depending on the country they wish to stay in, the purpose of their travel, and the duration of their visit. Certain visas will grant Albanian holders permission to work or study within the selected Schengen country.

Although Albania is on the membership negotiations with the European Union since 2009 and an official candidate since 2014, the country is not a member state and regulates its own visa policy. Albania has many bilateral or multilateral visa agreements with different countries all over the world that eliminates lengthy visa processes. Citizens of these countries are allowed to stay in Albania for 90 days within a 180 days period starting from the date of first entry, given that they do not take up employment. These countries are listed below.
It is possible for you to obtain multiple-entry tourist visas to Albania with a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 180 days period.

A passport is an official government document that certifies one’s identity and citizenship. The passport serves two purposes; to regain entry to the country of citizenship (i.e. the United States) and is a requirement by many countries to gain entry to the country you are visiting. An Albania visa is an official government document that temporarily authorizes you to be in the country. Many countries require a visa to gain entry. The Albania visa is in the form of a stamp/sticker IN the passport and is obtained from an Albania Embassy in Washington DC or consulates around the country. We have staff spread around the country to hand carry your application for you and then overnight the passport back when it is completed.
Travel medical insurance with minimum coverage of 30,000 EUR is one of the mandatory Albania visa requirements.
