Visas lifted between Albania and Macedonia
TIRANA, Sep 2 – The Albanian Foreign Ministry reported that its residents would not need visas when crossing into neighboring Macedonia.

Earlier this year, Skopje decided to issue visas only at its embassy in Tirana, a move that caused alarm by Albanians, also urging Tirana to retaliate with the same regulations for Macedonian citizens.

Following the outcry, Skopje’s parliament passed a law allowing Albanians to enter the country without visas.

However, officials said a mistake in the procedures at the Macedonian parliament had postponed passing the law till this month.

Macedonian citizens needed no visa when entering Albania.

Now, Albanians only need to have proof of health insurance when going entering Macedonia.

It is expected that this will take place soon. At the Cologne Summit in Spring which coincides with NATO’s 50th Jubilee, Albania’s Ambassador to the Alliance will take his seat as an equal alongside the 26 other member countries of the Alliance.
