The State Department warns of the risks of traveling in Algeria. Terrorist attacks, including bombings, false roadblocks, kidnappings and ambushes, occur regularly, particularly in rural areas such as the Kabylie region.

Additionally, sporadic episodes of civil unrest have been known to occur, such as the riots in Algiers and many other cities from January 2011 to the present.

Visitors should maintain a low profile and stay only in hotels with adequate security. Travelers should avoid large crowds, traveling in predictable patterns and traveling overland.
