Summer, the peak period for travel to Algeria, is rapidly approaching. And like every year, the question arises regarding the amount of currency authorized for import by travelers.

Algerians wishing to carry large amounts of currency abroad remain constantly fearful on this topic, as they fear that their money will be seized by customs and subject to legal proceedings.

What is the legal amount of currency authorized to be carried into Algeria?

However, the law is very clear. Algerians living abroad are entitled to carry a sum of 1,000 euros when traveling to Algeria. No declaration obligation is required for this amount.

Beyond this amount, a declaration to the customs services of the airport or port of arrival is mandatory. In other words, all travelers are authorized to import currency without any limit on the amount, subject to fulfilling the declaration obligation.
