Algeria is starting to reopen its borders after a 14-month pandemic shutdown

After a 14-month suspension amid the coronavirus pandemic, Algeria is reopening its airspace and allowing flights to and from a handful of countries. However, many conditions are still imposed on arrivals in the North African nation to contain the risk of a rise in Covid-19 infections, including a mandatory five-day hotel quarantine.

While the resumption of commercial flights is a relief for some of the Algerian diaspora in France, frustration remains high with the strict Covid-19 conditions, the tickets expensive and difficult to obtain for the relatively few flights available, and the land and sea ​​borders that are still closed.
