There is a heightened threat of terrorism across Europe. Terrorist groups, including those based in Syria and Iraq, continue to make threats to conduct attacks throughout Europe.

New Zealanders in Albania are advised to keep themselves informed of potential risks to safety and security by monitoring the media and other local information sources. We recommend following any instructions issued by the local authorities and exercising a high degree of vigilance in public places, including at tourist sites, restaurants, bars, shopping areas, sporting events and transport hubs.

Civil Unrest
You should avoid all demonstrations and large public gatherings in Albania. Even peaceful protests have the potential to become violent.

General travel advice
New Zealanders travelling or living in Albania should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place.

New Zealanders in Albania are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
