Ukrainian citizens could now enter Albania and stay there for up to 90 days within 180 days from the date of first entry without visa, a Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman said here on Wednesday.
"The decision of the Albanian Government provides the abolition of visas for citizens of Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan who hold foreign passports," Alexander Dykusarov told a briefing.
The new rules apply to tourists as well as business people and participants in international and cultural events.
The visa-free regime will be permanent. In 2009 Tirana introduced a visa-free regime for Ukrainian nationals for the summer holiday season from June 1 to October 31.
