Coronavirus and FAQs at (TIA) airport

Coronavirus Answers and Frequently Asked Questions for Passengers at Tirana airport (TIA)


World situation. General considerations
Due to the advancement of vaccination worldwide, documentation and testing restrictions have been eliminated in many countries. In fact, in some countries, by presenting the complete vaccination certificate against Coronavirus, RT-PCR or antigen test results are no longer required, nor is a health affidavit form.

However, we insist once again, that in the situation of constant changes, it is always important to consult and finalize details with the airline and, if necessary, with the airport as well as, in the case of international flights, with the embassy or consulate near the final destination, and also with the countries involved for connecting flights, if any.
In this sense, it is useful to review the International Map of the current restrictions of each country.
