    • Staying for one year

      Algeria Apr 27, 2015 at 7:09 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I would like to travel to Algeria from the UK as soon as possible. I know that one the visa application for a tourist visa you have options of 30 days or 90 days. I would like to stay for much longer, roughly a year if possible as its such a beautiful country and I have many friends who live there that I would like to visit. I have been told that when you are in Algeria you are able to go to any local police station and update your visa to last for longer, is this true? I would really like to stay for a long period of time and I just need some kind of confirmation that when in the country you are able to extend your visa to stay for a long period.

      Thanks, Sofyaan

      Hi,
      I'm visiting Algeria next week to meet my in laws for the first time (Very apprehensive) I'm just wondering what I should wear and if I should wear a Hijab? I'm getting conflicting information from friends who have visited before.
      Thanks

    • Trip to Tam in March

      by momokun7 Online Now Oct 6, 2008 at 8:32 AM

      Hi,

      I am planning a trip from the UK to tamanrasset in March 2009. My plan is to get a solid 4x4 car, drive through France to pick up friends and take a ferry to Algiers from Marseille. Once in Algiers, we'll drive through to Ghardaia, el Golea, Insallah and then Tamanrasset where we will be staying most of our time. My question is, Could we find a local guide to take us on a trip to the hoggar for a week or so? or if we could join an organised expedition? Also, what are the costs?

      Many thanks for your answers.

      Any recent traveler to Tamanrasset: I may be heading there on a government one-year contract. My wife has joined me in Thailand, Peru, Iran (before revolution), and Philippines. Would you recommend she join me in S. Algeria?

      Any information on long term rental, villas? Would you recommend a year's stay for U.S. citizens?
