Required Documents to Apply
A trip to Algeria is unforgettable. The Mediterranean breezes, the white cities, the delicious cuisine, the desert oasis towns to the south, the friendly people: what more could you ask for? Unfortunately, you most likely need a visa to visit Algeria.
There are only 7 visa-exempt countries: Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, Seychelles, and Tunisia. If you are from one of these countries, you can freely enter and stay in Algeria for a period of maximum 90 days. Nevertheless, the purpose of your visit cannot be other than tourism and business.
Since the electronic visa is not yet available for Algeria, iVisa is currently unable to provide assistance with your visa application. We recommend you do research on the specific entry requirements your nationality must meet. But one thing is certain: you'll need to hold a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond your intended date of arrival in Algeria.
As far as the other requirements are concerned, we think it's best to give the nearest embassy a call or email. You can find a lot of useful info online, but it is not always the most reliable, leading to crucial mistakes. The embassy is the most accurate and updated source of visa information. To help travelers, we put together a list of embassies that you can use as a starting point. The contact information is quite easily accessible.
As you might imagine, you will be asked to present other documents as well. For example, the embassy will ask for several passport-sized photos of you. Also, you need to fill out completely an application form. Make sure that the information you provide is accurate and the spelling is correct, otherwise, you can end up with an invalid or denied visa application.
Hopefully, Algeria will adopt the electronic visa system soon, and when they do, iVisa will be able to provide safe, fast, and reliable assistance with your online application process. Until then, make sure that you have all the information before you apply. With a bit more research, you'll be lounging in the Mediterranean sun in no time.
