State Department: Albania - Travel Warning, March 3, 1997

Albania - Travel Warning
March 3, 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. American citizens currently in Albania should consider carefully their personal security situation and, if appropriate, depart Albania.

The Government of Albania has declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew from 8:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. The Government has also mandated that the workday for most businesses end at 3:00 p.m.

The U.S. Embassy strongly recommends that American citizens who remain in Albania 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 may 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. 97-005

For further information on travel to Albania, consult the Department of State's latest Consular Information Sheet for Albania.

This Travel Warning supercedes the Public Announcement issued February 20, 1997.
