Communiqué for Algerian citizens living in the republic of Ireland
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.
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. If photographs presented do not meet these requirements the application will be rejected.
Please follow these instructions carefully.
Passports and ID fees as of 1st January 2015
The consulate of Algeria in London informs the citizens living in the UK and Ireland that, pursuant to the Finance Law for 2015, the passport fees to be paid starting from 1st January 2015, are £55.
At the same time, the citizens are informed that the National ID card is free of charge.
As a facilitating measure to obtain the special birth certificate '12s', compulsory for the issuance of the biometric passport, the consulate of Algeria in London informs the algerian citizens born in Algeria, residing in the United Kingdom and Ireland, registered at the consulate, that they can apply online for the special birth certificate '12s' through a website made available to them by the Ministry of the Interior and Local Authorities: http://demande12s.interieur.gov.dz
Insurance for repatriation of remains
The consulate informs algerian nationals in UK and Ireland of the new provisions relating to the insurance for repatriation of remains for members of the national community abroad.
