State Department: Albania - Travel Warning, June 10, 1997

Albania - Travel Warning
June 10, 1997

Office of the Spokesman

The Department of State recommends that American citizens continue to avoid unnecessary travel to Albania. While the government of Albania has some control over the situation in Tirana, there continues to be sporadic shooting especially at night, there have been several bombings, tensions are heightened in the run-up to the elections scheduled for June 29, and the potential for renewed disorder remains. The security situation in other areas is much more unstable.

All American citizens visiting or remaining in Albania are strongly urged to register at the U.S. Embassy located at Rruga E. Elbasanit 103, Tirana.

The government of Albania has declared a state of emergency and continues to impose a curfew from 10:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. The U.S. Embassy strongly recommends that American citizens in Albania abide by the government-imposed curfew, avoid crowds, and exercise caution at all times. Depending on the security 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 at telephone (355-42) 32875, Fax (355-42) 32222.

No. 97-018

This supersedes the Travel Warning issued March 3, 1997.
