Plane Carrying Evacuated Afghans in Transit to U.S. Arrives in Albania

A plane carrying 121 people left Afghanistan and arrived in Albania’s Tirana airport on Friday, August 27.

According to a Reuters photographer who was at the scene, the ones included on the flight were children and people in wheelchairs, all of whom had undergone the safety protocols upon arrival and were brought to the tents for registration and some food.

Albanian media reports said that the plane arrived from Tbilisi where the refugees had been flown to from Kabul. 

The Afghans will be taken to hotels in the town of Durres where they will be staying until they are assessed by U.S. security and immigration authorities and their documentation for U.S, immigration visas is scheduled.

Albania, North Macedonia, and Kosovo supported the U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration’s proposition to serve as transit countries for the refugees whose final destination is in the United States.
