French Embassy in Algeria

Algeria gained its independence from France in 1962 and chose to establish the French Embassy on a fifteen-hectare estate in Algiers, known as Peltzer Park.

The French Embassy in Algeria has various divisions that manage specific functions, over and above maintaining relations with Algeria. The divisions include the Diplomatic Chancellery, the Military Mission, Administration Services, Consulate Services, the Economic Mission Division, French Development Division and the offices for Cultural Action and Co-operative Services. There are also French consulates located in other cities throughout Algeria.

Consular Services are offered to French citizens living in Algeria, those who are just visiting the country and Algerians planning to travel to France. The French Embassy recommends that visitors should contact the embassy before their arrival to familiarize themselves with the customs, laws, traditions and general information relating to the country. The embassy can supply vital information with regard to other matters as well, such as marriage, adoption, importing pets and safety issues. Passport renewals and applications can be done at the French Embassy and they can also assist with visas. They are able to provide help during medical emergencies - such as illness, injury and death - and during natural disasters or civil unrest.

It is essential that the laws of Algeria be obeyed at all times, as the French Embassy is only permitted to recommend a lawyer and serve as a liaison should a French citizen be arrested. They are not able to negotiate release or alter prison accommodation. Once in Algeria, visitors fall under the law and legal system of the country. The French Embassy in Algeria is also not able to make or cancel any bookings or arrangements on your behalf. Visitors should always remember to register their arrival and travel itinerary with the French Embassy so that they can be contacted in case of emergencies. Any queries or concerns can be directed to the embassy who will gladly try to assist visitors or residents.
