Algeria is a large country located in the north of Africa. The country has a long, fascinating history and a lot of interesting places to visit, but American citizens do need visas to travel there. Getting an Algerian visa can be easier said than done. Here are the requirements for tourists:
- 2 passport-sized photos
- 2 Algerian visa application forms. The Algerian Embassy will not accept handwritten forms- you must download a copy of the form from the Embassy website and fill it in on your computer. Additionally, forms must be typed in all capital letters. Remember, the Caps Lock key is your friend!
- A copy of your travel itinerary and hotel reservation confirmation.
- If you are visiting family in Algeria, you must also provide a letter of invitation from your host. The letter must be notarized at the city hall of the place of residence of your Algerian host.
The Algerian Embassy reserves the right to ask for additional information from any Algerian visa applicant, and they often do. For example, they may ask for a copy of a recent bank statement to prove that you can support yourself while you are in Algeria.
Applying for an Algerian visa is much easier with the help of a visa specialist. However, a lot of visa expediting companies don’t provide service for Algerian visas.
