Alaa Saqer

I am very eager to visit Albania for tourism and to see my friends. I am holding a Palestinian passport and having a valid residence permit in Turkey. I was trying to apply for the E-Visa on your website but I was unable to find my country in the nationality list to proceed with the process. I was wondering IF there is a way to apply for a visa to your country as Palestinian? Best regards,
