Utilities & Services


The voltage used in Albania is 220 Volts AC at 50HZ. Most power sockets are designed for standard 2 round prongs. Electrical appliances in Albania generally use the Western European standard plug with 2 square pins. Plug socket adaptors and power transformers are available and you can buy them electrical shops or at some other small shops.


The quality of tap water in Albania is good and you can usually drink from taps that supply water to kitchen areas. However, we suggest you get bottled water that is widely available in all local grocery shops and supermarkets.
