United States Embassy in Algeria

It was some years after Algeria gained independence from France before the United States of America opened an Embassy in Algiers. The embassy was officially opened on 12 November 1974 offering a comprehensive range of services to both Algerians traveling to the United States, and US citizens visiting Algeria.

The United States Embassy in Algeria is divided into different offices that specialize in their various fields. At present the embassy has offices that offer Agricultural Services, Commercial Services and Consular Services. The Defense Attaché office, Management Division, Political and Economic Affairs, Public Affairs, Middle East Partnership Initiative and Holidays offices are located in the United States Embassy building.

Being of assistance to United States citizens is another very important duty of the U.S. Embassy in Algeria. They are able to provide passport services, visa services and general information. Voters from abroad can also be assisted and matters such as adoption, emergencies, medical assistance, natural disasters, marriage and missing persons will be addressed by the embassy. The U.S. Embassy recommends that United States citizens do not carry their passport around with them, but to rather carry a certified copy of the passport on their person, which will be of great assistance in the event of having to re-issue a lost or stolen passport.

Travelers and United States residents in Algeria must be aware that they have to abide by and obey the laws and legal system of Algeria. It is therefore vital to contact the U.S. Embassy in Algeria to familiarize yourself with the laws of the country. The embassy is there to assist and address any queries or concerns.

Hello, my question, can a woman from Algeria get a 2 year visitor visa? Also, after receiving a 2 year visa, staying only 2 months, be forced to return to Algeria to be able to return to the USA?
