Opening a Bank Account in Albania

Postby texkourgan » Wed Jul 24, 2013 8:42 am


Is it difficult for expats to open a bank account in Albania? Which documents are required? How long does it take to open an account?

What bank services are available in Albania? Is internet banking or mobile banking an option? Are there any restrictions for expats regarding the services, such as loans?

Which bank would you recommend? Have you had any notable experiences, good or bad?
