The issue for Albanians to get visa this way is that there is currently no embassy/consulate of Vietnam establish in Albania. As such, if they are in Albania, it is quite difficult for them to get a Vietnamese visa this way, and therefore they need to visit the embassy in nearby countries for visa application. See their list here.

If they are in a country with one of such offices, they can completely contact them for visa application.
