Essentials to live in Albania


As an expat living in Albania, what would you advise the ones about to pack to bring along?

What are the items you can easily find in Albania? On the other hand, what is less common or quite expensive?

Share with us what you would recommend to bring in one’s suitcase or container when moving to Albania.

Thank you in advance,


Hi Christine,

As an Albanian who lives in London I would say, to bring as little as possible. It would depend on whether one is used to the quality of a product they use. In terms of clothing, I would say that you needn't bother bringing lots of stuff, as shops in Albania are well stocked, plus you can find affordable ones too(if you are on a tight budget).
I would suggest that if you cannot live without your laptop, then bring it along as in Albania it costs much more than in most countries. All other products are available(whether Italian or Turkish one).
