State Department: Albania - Travel Warning, August 18, 1998

Albania - Travel Warning
August 18, 1998

The Department of State warns against all travel to Albania because of recent declarations by Islamic extremists against the United States and its citizens. Given the possibility that the U.S. Embassy's personnel and facilities in Tirana, Albania, could be among the targets of a terrorist attack, on August 14, 1998, the Department of State ordered the departure of Embassy personnel in nonemergency positions and families of Embassy personnel. The U.S. Embassy is presently further reducing its staff. U.S. citizens in Albania are urged to consider their personal security situation and, if appropriate, to leave Albania. The U.S. Embassy will be able to provide only emergency citizen services.

No. 98-040

This Travel Warning supersedes the Public Announcement issued August 13, 1998, and the Travel Warning issued August 14, 1998, to reflect further reduction in Embassy staff.
