Algeria Travel Health Advice

Travellers visiting Algeria don't require any specific vaccinations, but caution should be taken by those with respiratory diseases as they may be exposed to dust and sandstorms. Bottled water is recommended as tap water isn't considered safe, while keeping hydrated is necessary as there is a threat of heat stroke. Healthcare services are not up to the standards many expats are used to but private hospitals and clinics in Algiers or Oran are adequate to some degree. Travel insurance is recommended for evacuation or treatment in nearby countries.
