State Department: Albania - Travel Warning, March 12, 1997

Albania - Travel Warning
March 12, 1997

Office of the Spokesman

The Department of State recommends that American citizens defer travel to Albania at this time due to increasing violence after the collapse of pyramid investment schemes and resulting political instability. The Government of Albania has declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew from 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. The Government has also mandated that the workday for most businesses end at 3:00 p.m.

The Department of State has therefore ordered the departure of dependents of American Embassy employees and non-essential U.S. Embassy employees.

American citizens currently in Albania should depart the country as soon as possible. In the meantime, U.S. citizens should follow the Government-imposed curfew, continue to avoid crowds and exercise caution at all times. Depending on the conditions prevailing in a particular locality, American citizens should remain in their homes and avoid travel.

For updated information, Americans should contact the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy, located at Rruga E Elbasanit 103, Tirana; telephone 355-42-32875; fax 355-42-32222.

No. 97-007

This Travel Warning supercedes the Travel Warning issued March 3, 1997.
