We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Albania. The British Embassy in Tirana provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Albania.

Our work covers a range of issues including economic reform, reducing organised crime and illegal migration.

We use programme funds managed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to provide expert assistance across the criminal justice system, including to the Supreme Court and prison service.

We improve bilateral defence links with our newest NATO ally, including through an annual programme of joint training exercises.

We support economic development through reforms to the business environment and measures against corruption; increasing Albania’s potential to attract foreign direct investment.
