Temporary Suspension of Visa Requirements

Message for U.S. Citizens U.S. Embassy Algiers 19 January 2016
Dual Nationals: Temporary suspension of visa requirements 

For dual national Algerian-Americans:  The Algerian government has announced that Algerian Americans holding dual nationality and who do not yet have their Algerian biometric passport may travel to Algeria simply with the U.S. passport and an Algerian National Identity Card – i.e. they do not need to request an Algerian visa in their U.S. passport.   This visa waiver policy is valid until 30 June 2016.

In general, the U.S. Government encourages American citizens to travel on a U.S. passport so that we can better provide assistance to Americans in distress.
