Algeria to offer Sahara tourists visas on arrival

The interior ministry announced Wednesday that Algeria will allow foreign tourists heading to its vast desert south to obtain visas on arrival, part of efforts to promote tourism in the Sahara.

In a statement, it said that foreigners heading to the south of the country who have tours booked with licenced local companies could obtain visas. Algeria, Africa’s biggest country by surface area, comprises a major chunk of the Sahara including nature reserves and prehistoric sites.

It also boasts 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) of Mediterranean coastline and several historical cities.
