MOBILITY GUIDE FOR RESEARCHERS IN ALBANIAWork permits

Persons who are not Albanian citizens and wish to work in Albania for more than three months need a work permit issued by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The Minister decides on the standard form of work permits, procedures for their acquisition, renewal and refusal of work permits and the documents that need to be submitted along with the application. The issuing or refusal of work permits takes up to 30 days from the day of submission of the documentation to the relevant body. Eight different types of work permits are issued to foreigners working in Albania. Restricted permits (e.g. for reduced hours of work and for specific geographical areas) are issued to students and other workers in their initial period of employment. Self-employed people, foreigners who employ at least two Albanian citizens for each foreigner, and people who have held a restricted work permit for at least three years, can receive permits without geographical restrictions or restrictions related to the type of activity. The initial validity of the permit is usually one year but it can be extended for up to five years. Persons who have worked in Albania for five years may apply for a permanent permit. The process of acquiring and extending a work permit is fairly straight for ward and takes no more than one month.
