DOING BUSINESS IN ALBANIA
Albania today offers a friendly legal framework as far as foreign investments are concerned. In order to absorb these investments, the Albanian parliament has since 1993 approved the "Foreign Investments" law, constantly improving it. This law is based on the principles of equality, non-discrimination and investor protection. In general, this law has established some principles and legal guarantees for any foreigner who wants to come to invest and open a business in Albania.
In this way, the following facilities are created for every foreigner:
- There is no need for prior authorization for any foreigners who wish to open a business in Albania.
- A company, with the participation of foreign investments, has the right to employ foreign citizens.
- Investors are treated in conditions no less favorable than those provided for local investments in similar circumstances, except for land ownership, which is regulated by a special law.
- In any case, foreign investments have no less favorable treatment than that provided by the generally accepted norms of international law.
- 100% foreign ownership in an enterprise is possible.
- Foreign investors have the right to repatriate all funds and contributions in nature of their investments.
- Private property and investments are protected by law from expropriation, or from measures with a similar effect, except for cases when the expropriation is carried out for a public purpose.
- The main goal is to increase domestic and foreign strategic investments, in the sectors of the economy considered as strategic sectors, through the establishment of special administrative procedures favoring, facilitating or accelerating support and services to investors.
- There are written selection criteria that are followed by the responsible lines to initiate a project, to benefit from the status "Project with strategic potential". On the other hand, it is the investor himself or the investment subject who proposes to benefit from the status "Investor/strategic investment assisted procedure", "Investor/strategic investment special procedure".
- In all cases and at all times, investments have equal and impartial treatment, they enjoy full protection and security.
