State Department: Albania - Travel Warning, August 14, 1997


Albania - Travel Warning
August 14, 1997

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
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 canceled the state of emergency and the curfew and has reasserted limited control over Tirana, the capital, the situation remains a cause for concern, due to the continuation of bombings and sporadic gunfire, mainly during the evening hours, as well as an increase in criminal activity.

The security situation outside Tirana remains even less stable than in the capital, and American citizens should avoid travel outside the capital unless absolutely necessary. The U.S. Embassy strongly recommends that American citizens avoid crowds and exercise caution at all times.

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

For updated information, Americans should contact the Consular Section at tel: (355) (42) 32875, fax: (355) (42) 32222.

No. 97-028

This supersedes the Travel Warning issued June 10, 1997.
