The US Embassy in Tirana revoked visas to judges and prosecutors because of corruption allegations


The US Embassy in Tirana issued a statement where it announced that all non-immigrant visas for several Albanian judges and prosecutors will be revoked. In the announcement, it was stated that they came to this decision after they determined that the officials did not qualify for a visa.

“The U.S. Embassy took this action in advance of the upcoming vetting process that will assess certain officials’ ties to corruption and in response to a case involving the flagrant misuse of an official visa by a senior prosecutor and his spouse, which lead to a revocation of their visas. The U.S. Embassy takes into account seriously the allegations of corruption and will continue to review justice officials’ visas and visa applications with additional scrutiny. The Department of State has a broad authority to deny and revoke visas based on information indicating that a visa holder may be inadmissible to the United States, and will continue to use this authority to advance its anti-corruption efforts in Albania”, stated the Embassy’s press release.
