Ambassador of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria On the occasion of the opening of the Algeria Visa Application Centre in Mumbai
The year 2017 heralds a new and significant occasion for the relations between Algeria and India as both our countries mark 55th year of diplomatic relations. This is highlighted by the increasing bilateral cooperation in political and economic spheres.
Foreseeing growth and significance of the Indian Business market to Algeria, it is my great pleasure to announce that the Embassy of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria has decided to avail the services of Cox and Kings Global Services and has entrusted them to open Algeria visa application centre in Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Ahmedabad, Indore and Chennai to cater to applications from South India Region. In this connection, Algeria Visa application centre will be opened in Mumbai followed by Algeria Visa collections desks in other major cities in Western and Southern India.
I am very confident that the Algeria visa application centres will provide relevant information on Algeria visas and regulations as well as more ease and convenience to the local Indian travelers. Information on all facets of Algeria itself will also be available. Through this website, you can find useful information regarding our visa processing procedures, requirements for Algeria visas, as well as details on the visa application centres and web links to relevant Algerian agencies. The opening of the visa application centres in is another milestone which reflects the strength of the two countries’ relations as well as Algeria’s outreach to Indian travelers. I would also like to Congratulate and Thank CKGS for being a Partner of Algeria Embassy and their tremendous efforts to make Algeria known in South India.
