From 1st of June, the land borders opened with neighbour countries. Also the whole country opened, lifting the curfew with the last remained red zones, Tirana, Durres and Shkodra. Now people can move freely in all the country.
There is hope that tourism will restart after long agony due to COVID19. The hotels in Tirana are ready to welcome tourists with all the necessary measures taking place. Restaurants, bars also are open. Albania’s beaches will be open from 1st of June, but only for people staying in hotels. From 10th of June, the beaches will be open for all people.
Public transport also will be open soon, and people can move from one destination to the other. But the measures are strict, even for transport who will work with half of their capacity due to social distance. Also the hotels have strict protocols to follow, starting from appointing a Covid coordinator who will monitor the health of guests since they are arriving in their hotel.
