Albanian passport holders have REQUIRED a visa to Vietnam for business purposes. However, there are 2 ways to get a Vietnam visa in Albania. You can apply at the Vietnam Embassy or apply for a visa on arrival airport.
1. Apply at the Vietnam Embassy/Consulate
Unfortunately, there is NO Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in Albania. Therefore, Albanian citizens need to visit the Vietnam Embassy in Greece, the nearest country, to apply for a Vietnam visa. Similarly, if you are currently living outside of Ireland, you need to contact the local Embassy/Consulate in the country where you are residing (if any).
It should be noted, all the Vietnam Embassies/Consulates are closed on the weekend. Also, none of them works on both Vietnam and Albania public holidays.
Importantly, you should contact directly to the Embassy about visa procedures and fees.
