How to bring your car to Algeria

Hello everybody,

If you exported your car to Algeria, were there any formalities that needed to be completed beforehand? What were they?

What is the best way to export your car? Is there a limit on the number of vehicles, or perhaps the age of the vehicle? Are there limits on emissions or emission controls in Algeria?

What are the expected costs of exporting a car? In your opinion, is it worth it?

Once you arrived in Algeria, what were the applicable taxes? What was the customs process like?

How do you go about registering an imported car in Algeria?

Is it best to buy a car once you have arrived or to bring your car with you, in your opinion?

We look forward to hearing from you!
