Whether visiting Algeria for tourism or business, you will most likely need a visa (with the exception of nationals of Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Democratic Republic Sahraoui, Seychelles, Syrian Arab Republic, Tunisia and Yemen). Although it is normally quite easy to obtain a visa, it is recommended to start your application in advance, in order to avoid possible issues. In order to get a visa, you will be asked to provide some documentation such as your flight itinerary (dates, flight numbers), the places you plan to visit (not always, but especially if you visit the south of Algeria), as well as the hotel confirmation. A valid passport (at least 6 months following your stay in Algeria) is also required to enter the country. For any other information, we recommend you contact the Algerian Embassy/Consulate in your country.

Best Time to Visit

The balmy climate and the proximity to France, Spain, Morocco and other North African countries make Algiers an ideal travel destination throughout the whole year. In fact, thanks to its position by the sea, the climate is typically Mediterranean: summers can be very hot (although not quite as hot as in the southern part of Algeria, the desert regions), with temperatures borderline unbearable. Spring is probably the best season to travel to the city (especially in April and May), with the weather perfect for visiting the ancient sights, but, if you also plan to travel to the southern part and go on a desert safari, October and November can still be good choices.

Public Transport

Public transport in Algeria is not very efficient, but it's making improvements. The main mean of transport in the city is the metro line: even though there is only one line of about 9 km, it takes you to the most important sights of the city. Also, another cheap way to move around is by hailing taxi. ETUSA (Entreprise de Transport Urbain et Suburbain d'Alger) is the main Algerian transport company and provides several bus lines.
