Algeria

Relocation Africa has been servicing Algiers in Algeria for 11 years successfully.  We have serviced outlying locations for adhoc projects but these will incur an additional fees.  With larger projects in outlying areas we are able to recruit and train a consultant within 4 – 6 weeks.

Climate

Arid to semi-arid; mild, wet winters with hot, dry summers along coast; drier with cold winters and hot summers on high plateau; sirocco is a hot, dust/sand-laden wind especially com- mon in summer.

Accommodation

The majority of suitable expat housing is located within certain areas and often within secure estates or “compounds” which are monitored by security guards or security companies.

Schooling

There are no international schools in Algiers providing the Brit- ish or American curricula. However, there is a school offering the national program in English.

Healthcare

Medical services are adequate in large urban centres though private clinics will tend to be better equipped. Outside of major centres, medical facilities are poor to non-existent. Doctors and hospitals usually expect immediate cash payment for their serv- ices. It is recommended to drink bottled water and use prevent- ative measures to avoid the risks of mosquito-borne diseases. Insect-borne diseases (such as leishmaniasis and West Nile fever) are prevalent in Algeria. There is also a risk of malaria. Take measures to avoid insect bites. It is always advisable to check the current vaccination requirements with your GP.

Shops

Centre Commercial Bab Azzouar,Sidi Yahia Hydra and Ben Aknoun are the main shops. Groceries are bought at Kouba, Jolie Vue in Algiers. Alcohol is only available in special shops. There are no companies that rent out furniture.
