بلاغ يخص دخول المواطنين مزدوجي الجنسية إلى الجزائر:

ليكن في علم المواطنين مزدوجي الجنسية، المسجلين بقنصلية لندن، الذين ليس لديهم جواز سفر بيومتري جزائري، أن التسهيل الذي كانوا يستفيدون منه للدخول إلى التراب الوطني باستعمال بطاقة التعريف الوطنية الجزائرية مع جواز سفر أجنبي بدون تأشيرة، ليكن في علمهم أنهم سيستـمرون في التمتع بهذا التسهيل إلى غاية 30 جوان 2016، و هو آخر أجل.

و تغتنم القنصلية هذه المناسبة لتذكّـر المواطنين الذين لم يتحصلوا بعد على الجواز البيومتري، بأن يبادروا فورا بطلب موعد لإيداع ملفهم للحصول على الجواز البيومتري، وذلك لتفادي أي صعوبات بعد ذلك الأجل.

Communiqué on the entry to Algeria of citizens holding dual nationality:

This is to inform the citizens, registered at the consulate, holding dual nationality and who do not have yet their Algerian biometric passport, that the service they were granted consisting of allowing them to enter Algeria with their Algerian National Identity Card and the foreign passport without the entry visa to Algeria, that they can continue to do so until 30 June 2016.

The consulate calls upon the citizens falling in the above category as well as those who have not yet applied for their Algerian biometric passport to request, as soon as possible, an appointment to lodge their application so as to avoid any trouble after the said deadline.

Communiqué sur l’entrée des binationaux en Algérie:

Les ressortissants binationaux, immatriculés auprès de ses services, qui ne détiennent pas de passeports biométriques algériens, sont informés que la facilité qui leur était accordée, consistant à présenter la carte nationale d’identité algérienne et le passeport étranger sans visa d’entrée en Algérie, a été prorogée jusqu’au 30 juin 2016.

Le Consulat recommande vivement à cette catégorie de citoyens, ainsi qu’à ceux qui n’ont pas encore procédé à la conversion de leur passeport (ancien modèle) en biométrique, de demander au plus tôt un rendez-vous pour déposer leur dossier afin d’éviter tout problème après ledit délai.

The Consulate of Algeria in London is pleased to inform the citizens living in Ireland, whose biometric passports are ready for collection and who cannot come to London to collect it (because they cannot get a visa), that it has put in place, as a new facilitation - and exceptional - measure, a procedure for them to get their biometric passport by recorded mail.
