Greek Parliament Likely to Pass Agreement on Driving License Recognition

TIRANA, January 6

Albanian citizens visiting or residing in Greece will be able to use or convert their driving license when the Greek parliament approves the agreement signed between Albania and Greece in May 2018.
According to the office of the Albanian Minister of State for Diaspora, the agreement was sent for approval in the Greek parliament on December 30th. Moreover, the Ministry added that the agreement will come into effect when approved by both parliaments.
Based on the agreement signed in 2018, all the Albanian citizens who have a valid driving license, the model I, issued from 1 July 2007 or model II issued from 24 January 2017 can drive a vehicle within the Greek borders as long as they don’t set up residency in Greece.

If an Albanian citizen decides to set up a residency in Greece, they can easily convert their driving license by submitting a request to the regional unit for transport and communication.
The procedure requires a medical examination for a driving license and an official translation of the Albanian driving license. They will not be required to take a theory or practical driving test. The same rules will apply to Greek citizens visiting or living in Albania.
