According to the ministry, the whole process is focused on guaranteeing the safety of passengers' health, strictly fulfilling all safety protocols approved by the Health Ministry, based on the guidelines of international bodies.

"International maritime passenger transport companies will be responsible for informing passengers about possible restrictions on departures from the Albanian ports to the intended destination, as well as the rules of health care and safety at the destination place," the ministry said.

The General Maritime Directorate will monitor the implementation of all measures as well as the action plan for the implementation of the obligations provided in the Maritime Transport Operation Protocol.

The Albanian government stopped international passenger maritime transport after the first coronavirus cases were confirmed on March 9.

On Sunday, health authorities reported 71 new coronavirus cases over the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in Albania to 1,962, with 1,134 recoveries and 44 fatalities.
