Is Albania already in the EU?

Not yet. Only in June 2014 Albania received the official status as a candidate for accession to the EU. Now the negotiations will start for real, and this process usually takes years.

Travelling through Albania, one might however gain a different impression. Whether out of anticipation or out of self-confidence, the EU flag already flies in front of public buildings.
