Before traveling to Algeria you will be required to apply for an Algeria tourist visa. We recommend you apply at least 2-3 months before your departure date so that you receive your visa and passport in time before your trip. Most Algeria consulates will not accept a visa 90 days before Algeria tour scheduled start date. Below are some helpful information when applying for your tourist visa:
Algerian Tourist Visa Application
Please follow the tourist visa and application guidelines at the consulate website. On the website, you will find the application forms and a detailed list of all documents and fees required when applying for the Algeria tourist visa. If you have any questions about the application, you can call the consulate at the phone number provided on their website.

You will be required to have a Letter of Invitation and approved itinerary to apply for the Algeria tourist visa.
Our Algerian travel partner will file your tour program with the local authorities, Ministry of Tourism, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who will then, internally, notify the consulate that you will be applying to. Once your Letter of Invitation has been sent to you, our Algeria travel partner will have filed your tour program with the local authorities. Applicants can usually apply for the visa immediately after receiving the Letter of Invitation (if the Letter of Invitation is received 90 days before the tour start date). If you plan on applying early (more than 90 days before the tour start date) please contact the Algerian consulate to confirm if they can receive your application earlier than 90 days before the tour start date.
If you need to apply between travels and have specific dates you need to apply, please call the consulate and let them know your situation.
We will need each client’s full name, passport number, passport date of delivery and expiry, start and end tour dates, birthdate, and profession. You can email us the information and send us a scanned copy of your photo page in your passport. Once we receive the required information, our Algeria travel partners will prepare a Letter of Invitation. When we have received the letter of invitation, we will email it to you to include in your application documents.
In order to receive your passport and visa back in a timely manner, we recommend you mail the passport with an express courier.
In order to avoid delays, please be sure to double check you have all the required documents, photographs, and payment prepared before you mail in the application for the tourist visa.
