You will be required to have a Letter of Invitation to apply for the Algeria tourist visa.
Our Algerian travel partner will file your tour program with the local authorities, the 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 should wait 7-10 business days before applying for the visa after receiving the Letter of Invitation. The authorities in Algeria will also send a letter of invitation directly to the Embassy you will be applying to; this normally takes a minimum of 7-10 days. The visa will only be granted once your documents have been received AND the Embassy has received the approval from the authorities in Algiers.
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 receive the invitation letter, 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.
