As per latest regulation of Albanian authorities and customs, duty free fuel for yachts is not available in any of Albanian port, it is still cheaper than most of the surrounding countries as duty paid fuel, excluding Montenegro, where you can still get duty free fuel on departure for both commercial and private yachts.
It was announced by the end of the year that it might happen, but as it had big impact on yachting in Albania and area, everyone thought it is unlikely to happen in such short notice. Starting from 1st of January bunkering in Albania will be possible only with duty paid fuel, two of the biggest refueling points in Albania, Porto Romano in Durres and bunker station in port of Sarande, just across of the Corfu will be able to deliver diesel fuel for yachts as per government regulated price, currently around 0.90-0.95 Euro per liter, which will be changed depending on world oil market. Of course, we will be watching market and situation before upcoming season and if any change occurs we will update you so that you can plan accordingly.
At the moment situation in Montenegro remains the same as it was in previous year, there are four main refueling points for duty free diesel:
In other ports and marinas, only duty paid fuel is available. For duty free diesel as per Montenegrin government regulation you will need agent who is representing you and sorting out papers with customs representatives.
