COVID Test Requirement: Not Needed
This European country is not on most travelers’ bucket lists, but now may be the time to find it on the map, just north of Greece. The travel advisory for Albania is Exercise Increased Caution (due to crime), but the CDC has given it a Level 1 warning due to the low number of COVID-19 cases.
Albania doesn’t ask travelers to undergo a COVID test to enter; however, there may be health screenings at airports or other ports of entry. Travelers from the U.S. also don’t need to quarantine on arrival.
Note: there is a curfew in place from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., and bars and restaurants aren’t allowed to operate during that time. Public movement will also be restricted at these hours. Outdoor gatherings are limited to 50 people, while masks are mandatory indoors. Beaches are open, and public transport is operational. More information can be found here.
