HOW CAN AN ALBANIAN PASSPORT HOLDER SPEND MORE THAN 90 CONSECUTIVE DAYS IN A SCHENGEN COUNTRY?

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.

Can I get a multiple entry tourist visa?

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.

 

 

Does my previous nationality matter for getting an Albania visa?

Although border control and consulate officers have a right to decline an entry permit to Albania, they do not exercise it often. Your previous nationality is not a prominent reason for them to deny a visa.

 

 

What is the difference between a passport and an Albania visa?

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.

Do I need travel or medical insurance plan?

Travel medical insurance with minimum coverage of 30,000 EUR is one of the mandatory Albania visa requirements. The insurance should cover all the Schengen countries as well. eVisas can also assist you in choosing the perfect travel or medical insurance policy to protect you against unforeseen medical or travel emergencies

How can I avoid an Albania Visa Rejection?

While there may be many more reasons for an Albania visa refusal, the most common reasons are mentioned below.

  • If you hope of getting that refusal overturned, or a second application approved, or above all just get the Albania Tourist/Business visa successfully in the first attempt itself, here are some of the things that you can do to avoid an Albania visa rejection
  • Make sure your passport meets the standard requirements for applying for an Albania visa online
  • It is really important that you provide all the documents required for your application. Different visa categories require several supporting documents, so it is important to make sure your application is specific to you, and that nothing is missed out.
  • Be clear on your purpose of visit. If traveling for tourist purposes; specify that and submit documents supporting your Albania tourist visa application. Similarly, vice-versa for Albania business visa.
  • Apply for the correct visa category.
  • Make sure that your previous visa is not valid before applying for a new Albania visa.
  • Submit confirmed return tickets as an assurance that you will return back to your home country & your purpose of travel is temporary.
  • Seek assistance from a reliable travel agent to process your application smoothly without any hiccups. They are professionals who have the right training and knowledge to guide you correctly.

 

What is the relationship between the validity of an Albania Visa, number of entries and duration of stay?

  • Validity of an Albania Visa refers to the period within which the visa holder is allowed to enter Albania.
  • The number of entries refers to the number of times the visa holder is permitted to enter Albania within the visa’s validity. One must carefully note what kind of entry is permitted. If the visa reads a single entry, its holder can only enter and leave Albania only once. Whereas, with multiple entries, he/she can enter or leave more than once within the visa validity.
  • Duration of stay refers to the longest period the visa holder is allowed to stay in Albania on each visit, and this is counted from the day following the entry into Albania.
  • When all the permitted entries are used up, the visa will no longer be valid. Even if there are unused entries, the visa will no longer be valid if the validity has already expired. In either case, the visa holder should apply for a new visa if another visit to Albania is planned.
  • The holder of a visa is eligible to enter Albania at any time prior to the expiry of its validity provided that permitted entries on the visa have not been used up; the holder’s planned duration of stay in Albania must not exceed the duration stated on the visa.

Which are the necessary documents required to be presented on arrival in Albania?

  • The passport is valid for at least 6 months from your date of entry.
  • Valid Albania visa
  • Boarding Pass
  • Return ticket to your country or next destination
  • Accommodation proof or invitation letter for family visits
  • Sufficient funds to cover your stay in Albania (cash, debit/credit card, etc)
  • Detailed itinerary of your trip
  • Documents relating to business trip (invitation letter, business card etc)
  • Note: It should be noted that the possession of a Visa is not a final authority to enter the Republic of Albania. The Immigration Officer at the entry point may refuse a holder of the visa to enter if he is satisfied that the holder is unable to fulfill Immigration entry requirements or if the presence of such person or visitors in the Republic of Albania would be contrary to the National Interests.

I have a Schengen visa. Will I need a different visa to enter Albania?

No, if your stay in the country is limited to 90 days, you will not need a visa to travel to the country. Additionally, holders of the U.S.A. or U.K. visa also would not need a different visa.

HOW LONG ARE ALBANIAN NATIONALS PERMITTED TO STAY IN SCHENGEN MEMBER COUNTRIES?

Travelers from Albania are currently granted permission to enter, travel between, and stay within the Schengen borders for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period without being required to apply for a visa.

Both periods of 90 days and 180 days are counting starting on the day the Albanian traveler first enters any Schengen Area member country. Visitors from Albania are granted multiple entries into the Schengen member countries so long as the total sum of their stay in the Schengen Zone does not exceed 90 days within any 180-day period.

Do I have to send you my passport to get an Albania visa? Is it safe to send a passport?

Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Albania visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa requests cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application using our secure collection service.
