Can someone please explain the Family Book to me? I have been told that in order to rent an apartment as a married couple that they must first have this Family Book. Can someone tell me how does the couple get this? Any information about this would be greatly appreciated.

Hiu Nauzica, TY for your response. How long would I have to be in Algeria before the wedding ceremony could be performed?

Dear Jamel, You are totally entitle to your opinion and i respect it but i suppose i'm entitle to have an opinion that's different from yours. A success of relationship depends on both parties striving to make it work and understanding their responsibilities towards each other.

Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Cover your body as much as you can for women. If you see no woman in a store or restaurant or cafe you better stay away or people will stare at you. Watch and learn before act... (Continue)

Hi all, I really need some help. Seems like embassy doesn't want to answer the phone. I am American and have been talking to an Algerian for 3 years, As it seems easier and less of a burden for me to go there, we have decided to meet, marry and live in Algeria. When... we don't know. If it wasn't for my grandparents Id be homeless right now. Money is so tight. But I really need answers so I can know better of what to do. What visa do I take? How do I get residence? Basically what can I do to stay there once Im there? I have no interest in coming back and if I do then I will be homeless and out of work. Not to mention I would be married so I would like to stay with my husband. I also have no problem doing a dual citizenship or becoming Algerian. He is a cop though and has said its against the law to marry a foreigner, but there might be ways. If not he said he will move and look for another good job. Any advice would be appreciated. muslimah502@gmail

LiquidSunset initially posted:
I'm trying to find out how we can find out more about a guy my daughter met on the Internet? From Algeria?. About 5 months ago my American 24 year old daughter met a guy on the internet from Algeria living in Paris, 2 years. She was in the middle of the application process for an advanced degree in nursing, when suddenly she said she didn't want to be a nurse. We found it baffling as it has been her life time calling. She worked and studied to get almost straight A's to get into a competitive program. At Christmas time she went over to Paris (saying she wanted to meet her French relatives) to meet him and now she is blindly in love. Conventional wisdom says there is there nothing we can do about that. He is very handsome, intelligent, clever, speaks 3 languages (self learned) and says he's working on his second master's degree in IT Management. The first is in Business Management. I wonder why he had all these days to travel with her as a manager. He says he loves her and I sense he cares However, the fact of the matter is that we don't know who this guy is and really, what is his agenda? He has spoken to everyone in our family and visited my daughter's relatives, whom I haven't even met. Yet he told her he can't tell his mother about her because in Algeria it has to be an official announcement before. He drove her to Ansterdam and they stopped off in Belgium to introduce him to a best friend. Everyone says he's serious, handsome, and responsible and wants the best for her. In other words charming. He says he's going to come over to the US in April but I doubt it somehow. How will he get a visa? Is she financially responsible to sponsor his visit? Still no ticket. I'm afraid she will quit her job and move to Paris and put herself in a very vulnerable position. Is he married??? A Fiancee? Already has a daughter. If there is anyone who offer suggestions on how to navigate this difficult situation, I would be very grateful for any intelligence out there. Thank You, Worried Parents

Thank you for your insights. I will pass this on to my daughter, but I think she already knows this. He is a wonderful young man and they both have our blessings. All the best to you. P.S. I am married to an Italian and it is also FAMILY FIRST. Not easy.

My husband is an Algerian, we lived in my country but recently we moved to Algeria to visit my inlaws. One thing I want you to know about Algerian, family always comes first! Family here stick more than glue, and really hard to get agreement from parents to marry a foreigner (I was lucky!). Doesn't matter how far or how long a son live abroad, he will always stick to his parents and need permission for any decision he will make. So if you want to make sure this man is not play around with your daughter, make sure the family especially parents already know (better agree) about their relationship!

A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Algiers, Algeria
Culture-Shock-in-Algiers
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Act like the most innocent thing in front of your inlaws, high neckline, very conservative dressing and talk. Do not raise your voice in public or argue with your husband infront of family... sounds tough but people here love talking about any sort of drama!! Watch your things, people tend to steal here especially make and gold!! In general people are nice but like anywhere you get the bad ones!! (Continue)

My husband is algerian, I lived with my inlaws for the first month in algeria, now I have been living here for almost 6 months, and still deeply depressed due to culture shock! I should say I am lucky that I married to a nice and very different algerian man compare to most of other algerian.

Jciyanno initially posted:
Hi, I recently moved to Algiers, and I am looking for short term rental in areas such as Ain Allah, Val D'hydra, Ben aknoun for around a month. I'm waiting for an apartment to be complete that I want to rent but it's going to take a month to be done. Any recommendations? My budget is $1,200/month furnished. If it's a good apartment I'll take it yearly and forget about the apartment I'm waiting for.
