Foreign nationals may be vulnerable to low-level crime, including pickpocketing and theft of belongings when traveling through Algeria. Displaying valuables can increase the risk of becoming a target. However, cities, including Algiers have a reasonable level of police presence which can discourage criminals.
Terrorist groups such as ISIS and AQ-M are active within the region. Security forces and foreign travelers are vulnerable to attacks. Areas of high risk include the border regions due to freedom of movement from neighbouring countries. In 2014 international visitors were commonly targeted by criminal gangs and terrorist groups in the Sahel for kidnapping opportunities. No further incidents have been reported due to the advice from foreign governments to avoid the area.
Road travel in Algeria can be unpredictable. Infrastructure is poor and not conducive for the number of road users; therefore, heavy congestion and disruptions are likely in urban areas. There is a high risk of road traffic collisions (RTCs) due to the poor driving conditions, unpredictable driving behaviour and inadequate infrastructure.
Public transportation can be unreliable and unsafe for foreign travelers.
