The Consulate of Algeria in London is pleased to inform its citizens living in Ireland (Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) that mobile services will be organized to process their biometric passport applications. They are thus invited to submit their applications. The consulate is also pleased to inform citizens whose biometric passport is ready that they will be able to collect it in Dublin.
Biometric passport for children under 12:
As a new facilitating measure of the biometric passport procedures benefiting our citizens abroad, it is brought to their care that, as of 30 June 2015, the presence of children under 12 years is no longer required at the Consulate either when submitting the application or when collecting the passport. These two operations can now be performed by the child's legal guardian.
Passport photo requirements:
Important: Applicants for biometric passport must ensure their photos meet the required standards (I.C.A.O.). If photographs presented do not meet these requirements the application will be rejected.
Please follow these instructions carefully.

The consulate of Algeria in London informs those citizens, who have already applied for the biometric passport and which is not yet ready for collection (within at least (02) two months) and must imperatively travel, that they are exceptionally granted an exemption from the stamp duty if they request an extension of their old passport or the issuance of new one (if the old one is already extended).
