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 upon request.

pandemic; Air, land, and sea borders have faced long closure.

any entry requirements including exemptions.

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.

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.
