TIRANA, September 24
The General Directorate of Taxation (DPT) announced on Thursday the fine refund procedure for all the Albanian citizens that were stuck abroad due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Hence, all those who overstayed their visas or the 90 day limit in the Schengen area or other countries from 10 March to 1 June, and consequently were subject to fines by foreign authorities, can apply for compensation.
According to the General Tax Directorate, those that are eligible for a refund must submit a list of documents by post or to the DPT mailbox.
The list of documents includes:
A translated and notarized copy of the payment receipt, which confirms that the fine was paid.
Personal bank account details (name of the bank and IBAN)
A copy of an identification document (passport or ID card)
Personal contact phone number
