Algeria’s economic freedom score is 49.7, making its economy the 162nd freest in the 2021 index. Its overall score has increased by 2.8 points, primarily because of improvements in its fiscal health. Algeria has the tenth-largest natural gas reserve in the world and is the sixth-largest natural gas exporter. The oil and gas sector is the country’s main source of revenues, generating about 70% of total budget receipts, therefore Algeria is the most active country for business and Commercial flights and has a huge number of domestic and international airports to facilitate the transportation between the different parts of the country.

Houari Boumediene Airport, also known as Algeria Airport or Algeria International Airport, is the main international airport serving the capital of Algeria. The airport has a restricted schedule when it comes to its working hours depending on the day of the week, but you can extend the working hours of it upon request.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic; Air, land, and sea borders have faced long closure. Travelers and Air operators should check with the Algerian authorities for any entry requirements including exemptions.

Previously, entry was limited to Algerian nationals returning on repatriation flights from abroad, foreign nationals with diplomatic visas, and employees of foreign companies operating in Algeria. There was a process set out by the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs relating to requests for authorization to enter Algeria.

Travelers who think they are eligible to enter Algeria despite all borders being closed shall need to contact their employer and/or their country’s Embassy in Algeria for more information on this process.

Generally, Travelers should check with the Algerian authorities for any entry requirements including COVID testing. Previous requirements included evidence of a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours before arrival. Vaccinated personnel shall also check with the authorities if their type and date of vaccine are acceptable to enter the country.

Algerian authorities may require quarantine for short time. Previous quarantine requirements were a compulsory 14-day stay at a state facility, or own accommodation (if diplomatic), or company accommodation (if authorized by the Prime Minister).
