Algeria is an absolutely wonderful country to visit but there are a few hints to keep in mind as you are planning your Algeria trip.
1. Tourist Visa: You will be required to have a tourist visa before you enter Algeria. Mosaic North Africa partners in Algeria will assist you with all the necessary documents for you to send in with your application to the Algerian embassy in your country. PLEASE do not leave this until the last minute. Mosaic North Africa will not be held responsible if the client does not receive their tourist visa before the departure date. We suggest you begin planing your Algeria trip at least 2 or 3 months before your departure date. You will most likely receive your visa withing 2 weeks but we prefer that you apply for the visa ahead of time. Also keep in mind that you must be a resident in the country where you are applying for the Algeria tourist visa. That means if you are already traveling in a country that is not your passport country and you decide to add Algeria to your travels you will not receive the visa.
2. Make sure you bring in US Dollars or Euros to exchange at a bank or the airport in Algiers. We suggest for our half-board clients that you plan for $20 per day for lunch, tips, and drinks.
3. Set your exceptions for the travels: Algeria is not like its neigbouring countries Morocco and Tunisia. They do not have all the infrastructure set up for tourism like the others. So this means that our hotel options are limited to a few places in each city but we plan for the best hotel in the range you choose. We will not place our clients in anything under a 3★ standard.
