Flexibility of visa-free traveling for Algerian citizens

Visiting other countries visa-free is a great simplification. Algerian travelers do not have to deal with many formalities. Instead of staying in a line at an embassy, they can focus on other aspects of traveling abroad.

They can, for example, search for the most interesting places to explore during their journey. There are so many beautiful places to see and interesting people to meet.

Thanks to the flexibility of visa-free traveling, Algerian passport holders have the possibility of going abroad more often and staying there longer than with a visa.

How to apply for an Algerian passport 

The Algerian passport may be issued only to Algerian citizens. In 2012 a biometric passport was introduced.

The complete application requires:

  • filling in a form
  • submitting necessary documents (for a biometric passport, fingerprints and photographs must be provided in person)
  • covering the passport fee
  • pick up of the document (personal presence in case of adults is mandatory)

The biometric passport is issued in Algeria, so the processing time takes 6 weeks at least.

Traveling to visa-free countries has many benefits

When you travel visa-free, you do not have to worry about visa validity time. You carry only a passport during your international trip. By holding a valid visa, you may be limited by the number of entries to a foreign country.

At the same time, visa-free destinations allow visitors to stay in the country for the whole passport validity period. Moreover, you can leave or enter your travel destination as often as you wish.

It is easier to find a job or start studies when you are eligible to travel without a visa. Such spontaneity encourages more and more people to choose visa-free destinations for both short-term on extended stays.

How to ensure that your destination is a visa-free country?

You can find information about visa-free destinations online. The most current information is published by the embassy on its official website.

What is necessary to do if your destination is not a visa-free country?

The first thing you should do when planning a trip to a non-visa-free country is to collect necessary documents like a valid passport, photographs, ID card, etc.

Next, you check one of the available visa application options.

Then you submit an application, cover a visa fee, and await approval. In the case of an electronic visa or visa-on-arrival, formalities are minimized.

Tips for traveling to non-visa-free countries

Make sure your passport is valid, and you have enough time to go through the visa application process. Pay attention to data completed in the application form, as mistakes may result in visa approval delays.

How important is checking for the different visa requirements of each country before traveling?

If you want to be well prepared for travel and avoid problems after arriving in a foreign country, you should check for the visa requirements of your destination.
