Hi, My hubby is currently assigned a new project in Algeris for 2 years and we are Indian couple moving from Ireland to Algeria with a 1.5 years old son. Can you please list us the places where most of the expats live in Algeris and also safe options to rent a serviced apartment.? We are really concerned about the move as we both don't know the local languages of Algeria. Please share any details relating our move that would benefit our safe stay in Algeris.. Thank you..

Hi My father is Algerian, In my opinion if you are in the capital then I think Alger Centre is not bad or Bab El Oued this is the middle class, high class is Hydra or Sidi Yahja. Algeria has 2 languages: Arabic and French. English is not very common. Greetings Chanez Personal Shopper and Gift Buying

Hi mustafalotfi , I moved from the US a couple of years ago with 2 kids, age 3 and 5 both spoke only English a little bit of french. I put the oldest in a private Algerian school and by the end of the year he could, write, read and speak french and Arabic, I was amazed! But it wasn't all good since the school system in Algeria is so different from the American, had to go through an adaption phase which wasn't easy... Good luck!

Nabilo replied to the thread Transferring money out of the country (Inheritance) on the Algeria forum:
adam686 initially posted:
Hello! I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or advice with regards to getting sizable amounts of money out of Algeria and into the US. (let's say the equivalent of $500,000+ USD; or > 50,000,000 Algerian Dinars worth). We inherited this money and would like to be able to access it (we are currently living in the US). I'm very clueless about how the banking system in Algeria works, but from what I gather the infrastructure is very "primitive". So how can one go about converting this money into USD and getting it to a US bank account safely and legally? I noticed that Citibank and HSBC do appear to operate in the country - does anyone have any experience trying to get this done through them? I'm used to the US banking system where you can just show up with cash and make things happen - but it seems like Algerian Dinars are not well-recognized currency outside of the country. So basically: Have a lot of Algerian Dinars in Algeria. Interested in getting them converted to USD and transferring them out of the country (to the US). Any thoughts/suggestions/insights? I'd greatly appreciate any experience which could be shared on the subject! Thank you very, very much for your time! -Adam

It's illegal to transfer money out of Algerian soil, the only people who can do that are export/import agencies, and the government of course. It's sad really, but you can always contact the U.S embassy in Algiers they may be of some help!
