The consulate of Algeria in London recalls that all the ordinary passports must be converted to a biometric as soon as possible. Hence, all the algerian citizens residing in the United Kingdom and in Ireland, regularly registered at the Consulate, holding an ordinary passport, regardless of their expiry dates, are requested to apply for a biometric passport the soonest possible.
Also, the consulate is no longer issuing or extending the non-biometric passports.
The consulate avails itself of this opportunity to stress the importance for the citizens to apply and obtain the biometric passport and calls on their civic responsibility and cooperation to complete this operation of the conversion of the ordinary passport to a biometric one to avoid any problem in their travel abroad.
NOTE: The information on how to apply for the biometric passport is available on the biometric passport section.
