Travel to the EU

The EU has developed a number of programmes to encourage the mobility of students, teachers and researchers and the exchange of information and best practice.

On 25 September 2014 the Visa Information System (VIS) for Schengen short-stay visas started operation in all Schengen States' consulates present in the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo*, Montenegro and Serbia) and Turkey. This is part of the gradual worldwide deployment of the VIS (which started in October 2011) leading to all Schengen States' consulates worldwide being connected. The global roll-out is scheduled to be completed in summer 2015.

As VIS relates exclusively to Schengen short-stay visas, Albanian citizens holding a biometric passport will not be affected. However residents in Albania who – due to their nationality – fall under the Schengen visa requirement will be submitted to the VIS procedure.

For more information please see: http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/borders-and-visas/visa-information-system/index_en.htm

 

If you are an EU citizen in Albania and you need consular protection, you should contact the embassy or consulate of your home country in Albania. If your home country does not have an embassy or consulate in Albania, as an EU citizen, you have the right to contact the embassy or consulate of any other EU country in Albania. You can find a list of all EU embassies and consulates in Albania below.

Situations in which you can receive consular protection as an EU citizen include: you have lost your passport or ID card or it was stolen, you had an accident or are seriously ill, you are the victim of a crime, you have been arrested or detained, a family member has died in Albania, you need repatriation in case of an emergency, such as a natural disaster. You can find more information on EU consular protection here
