Default Albania Help?

Hello. We have been trapped in Albania for a year now. We have kids and are homeless. Everything here is expensive. People are violent and hate foreigners. The government will not help. They want £50,000. What do we do? Thanks.

Well this is rather reminiscent of posts we had last year from another member. Why are you trapped, what is your citizenship?

Hello. Yes, that may be us! To be honest, we are US citizens. But there is no one, anywhere to help us even with advice and how we can survive this apocalypse. Thank you.

That is private property and heavily guarded. We are not allowed there.

I'll ask for your accounts to be merged then, as per the Site Rules you cannot have multiple accounts.

As above, the US Embassy will help you. You can phone or email them for assistance/repatriation - https://al.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/

lol No you can't. We've been homeless in 3rd world nations for years. What makes you think that the embassy here would do such a thing, but nowhere else?

If you are homeless why are you traveling around the world?

​​​​​​Maybe go back to the USA and try.. finding a job?

Every Embassy will do this, that's one of the main reasons they exist! To help their own citizens in that country. For some reason the link I've given above is redirecting to the home page of the Embassy, but there's a whole section on assistance for US citizens, including financial assistance and repatriation. It's on the menu at the top of the page.

Perhaps they've run out of "credit" with US embassies around the world?

This OP sounds like one that has been ranting about being stuck in Albania, no money, 10 kids, no education etc etc.
He posted on various EU forums plus the UK - all his posts have now been closed.

Trying to find shelter and food? The US is one of the hardest nations to get into. Also, you seriously did not know about the Atlantic Ocean that separates Europe from the Americas? Also, we do not qualify for visas to America.

Yes. I see you are on both forums? What an odd coincidence. Unless you are stalking me?
