I am a British Passport holder and want to visit Algeria, do I need a visa?
First of all, 1) How hard is it to get a visa from Algeria, being an American citizen?
And 2) I will need to apply from the embassy in Paris. Will this be possible?
I'm likely going to visit Algeria in July, but the Dutch government advices against all but essential travel to Algeria. Since I know travel advices are a bit 'conversative' I don't take them very seriously. However, I'm certainly aware that there are unsafe places in Algeria. I'm going to visit the northern cities (Oran, Algiers and Constatine) and Ghardaia further south. Are these cities safe to visit (as a solo-traveller)?
Secondly the Algerian embassy in The Hague requires a hotel reservation in order to apply for a visa. I was looking at booking.com for a good deal, but the hotels are incredible expensive! I was actually thinking of spending 15 - 20 EUR per night, and not >60 EUR. Does anyone know how to obtain a hotel confirmation without spending alot of money? Is faking a hotel confirmation an option?
Hi all! Anyone who nows where to find a cheap accomodation in Annaba. And a street adress to the bus station where buses go to Tunis?

I am planning on going to algeria in a few weeks, hopefully. There are not any cheap hostels in algiers, algeria online, like many other countries, so I will have to find one via word of mouth. I am looking for nothing more than 15 dollars a night. Have any backpackers been to algiers? If anyone knows of some hostels that are very low budget, let me know the name and address. I would really appreciate it. I have already searched the internet. Thank you!
I have just google searched an looked around for budget Accomodation. I cant seem to find anything in Algiers. What im after is either: BnB, hostel, motel, hotel cost 10-50 USD/Euro a night. location: either city centre or pretty mucrh anywhere in Algiers that has access to the metro/transport. any websites or reccomendation will be helpful. P.S im a budget traveler

My trip to Tindouf seems to be coming together for about half of November. Afterward, I have been trying to arrange to see (at least) Algiers and Constantine and I think that I have discovered a way to make that happen. My question is which locations should be at the top of my priority list after these two cities? My primary interests for this (after)trip are history, though not necessarily pre-history, and culture. I would also like to experience something of the Berber and Touareg cultures. More time is available than money. Thanks!!
olá amo muito a cultura e estarei de viagem nestas férias para dois locais: Espanha e Argélia, quero muito conhecer estas duas cidades, mas infelizmente não conheço ninguém por lá que possa me auxiliar, por favor se houver alguém que vá até lá neste período ou que esteja morando em Argélia gostaria muitissímo de uma companhia pelas ruas da Argélia! Obrigada meu email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking to visit Chlef Algeria, later this year. I've read the travel advisory and it does not look good, a lot of negative publicity about Algeria as a whole can anyone advise me please?
Hello! Tell me, please, the Algerian tour-operators who organizing trips to Sahara (Tassili N'Ajjer, Du Hoggar etc), but in Russian language. If those aren't available, please, tell me how to get to parks Tassili N'Ajjer and Tassili du Hoggar without the guide and without purchase the tour. Thanks.
Hello. Tell me please, good beaches of Algiers! I'll be living in a hotel "Grand Hôtel des Étrangers", near the railway station "Gare Centrale". I ask them to indicate on a map and tell how to get to. When is it best to go to Algeria, that could swim to the sea and in the desert is not too hot? Thanks.
Hello! In the future I plan a trip to the countries of Maghrib (as soon as there to come to an end disorders). And so a problem. A shock for me was that the border of Morocco-Algeria is closed! I planned the travel by train, since by plane very expensively for me (Algiers-Casablanca - 361$). Whether probably somehow cheaply and quickly to get from Algeria to Morocco? Not necessarily by the ground, it is possible and by sea... But escape Europe! (I, as the citizen of the Russian Federation, will spend many money and nerves for Schengen visa registration, though I am not going to live in Europe even day) Interesting information I found in Russian (I have translated): #1: The border with Morocco closed in 1984. About her go to all kinds of rumors. Most people say that the border is closed completely and passage through it impossible. But there is also such opinion that the foreigner who has written out in police a certain paper, can pass through frontier transition Maghnia - Oujda. Unfortunately, this information has not been tested by anyone. (ve.free-travels.ru/articles/... #2: From Algeria it is possible to get two ways. The overland border which long time was closed, has opened recently, but only for foreigners, therefore the local can wrongly consider that it is closed. Unique transition – near the Moroccan Oujda. Transition under Béchar is closed. Trains don't go to Algeria. (ve.free-travels.ru/articles/... Help me, please. Thanks.
I'm planning to go to Boumerdes, Algeria for 2 weeks in the summer and I'm wondering if there are any extra precautions I should take, tourist traps, dangers and warnings all these things. I'm planning on going and spending time with my friends from Algeria, I'm traveling and staying alone in a villa but I will be with them during the day. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Hi, I'll be in Algiers in March and would like to visit Djemila. Is it possible to get a bus in the morning to Setif and return the same evening? I speak a little French and a little Arabic but I can read both. Would I have trouble finding transportation to Setif? Thanks, Niloofar
Hi! This year, me and my wife decided to spent one month in Algeria using camper. The questions are: is it safety to sleep in motorhome outdoor, what about the roads to the south ( Ouargla be probably the most south place we will visit). Any advice about everything is welcome
Hello, I am planning to do camel trek at Timimoun next August. I need a car and a driver from Bechar to Timimoun. Is there any good travel agency arranging tourist car with a guide? Any help and suggestion is much apreciated. Thanks !
Can anyone tell me a price for a camel ride in Hammamet? Thanx
I know some people wishing to travel to Algiers, now that TAP will start operating directly from Lisboa next month. Should they arrange a guide (or a packaged tour like Nomad or Nouvelles Frontiers in France have) and maybe stick to the northern part of the country? We just heard some news about an armed group going into Tikoubain in the southeast in search of tourists. This is leaving them a bit apreenshive, but still, the country looks very interesting in cultural and nature terms. It's quite an off the beaten track destination in our country. Thanks a lot
We are planning on driving through Algeria and then onto Tunisia in the spring, at the moment our plans are: Day 1: Morning ferry docking in Oran visit to Tlemcan and back to Oran Day 2: Oran to Algiers Day 3: Algiers to Djimela - Djimela to Constantine - Constantine to Annaba Day 4: Annaba to the border then to Tunis It's part of a much longer trip folowing the Med coast so want to keep the time short but not miss out on anything. We are driving ourselves and understand we need an escort or guide to be with us even in the north of the country. Any help would be much appreciated as at the moment it's around 1000 euros per person B&B for 4 days. Thanks, Lisajs
To enter Algeria, is Visa required for UK Citizen? Thanks
I have been a very distant follower of the fortunes of the people of Algeria since grade school but am just now getting to make my first visit. I will be there for about two weeks in April. I know quite a bit about their history, geography, etc. and have read several pages of VT members but I would really like to know a lot more about their culture and the fine points of how to get to know them on a more personal, basic level. I mean absolutely nothing salacious by this, it is just that I would love to know as much about the people when I leave as I do about their history, geography, etc. now. Any help will be most gratefully appreciated.
I am currently in short bussiness trip in Algiers, recently my laptop bogged down and looking for replacement or repair. I checked Tosiba website and no Algerian Company stated here. Is anyone knows where I can locate toshiba rep office here? Since there is a communication problem here, finding one is quite q challenge. Not a tourism question but hope someone can help
Hi all! My girlfriend (South African citizen) and I (British citizen) really want to visit Algeria in September. We'll be in Morocco and apparently one can't cross the border overland (including by train?). So the best (Cheapest) option would presumably be to fly back to Europe and then catch a cheap flight to Tunisia and then head to Algeria? Any better ideas? I'm assuming the Morocco-Algeria border is still shut? I also hear the visa is notoriously hard to acquire. Can one get a visa in Tunis? And if so what are the requirements exactly (I hear conflicting things)? Lastly, are there accommodation options in Algeria for travelers on a very tight backpacker budget? THANK YOU! Micah
I am wanting to go to Algeria... I am a woman and will be alone... is it safe? Is there anything I should know about before I go? Thanx :) Jeanette

We are going two months bicycling in Algeria. I would appreciate to hear from anyone been there recently, because we are not sure if the police would let us travel on our own without a car and a guide. How can we let go of that? Aleks
