No Visa for Zog and family

July 15, 1940

King Zog of Albania is "trying to emigrate" to the United States with his half-American wife, Queen Geraldine, their infant son, and his three sisters.  The infant Prince Skandar was born just before Albania was invaded by Italy last year.

Zog is in London, and has made known that he has been trying to arrange an "Atlantic crossing" for his family and "a retinue of about thirty."

But if the exiled king and his family want to make the United States their home, they will have "got an immigrants."  The United States Embassy in London has stopped issuing visitors' visas.

The Albanian royals arrived in London on June 27 from France.
