- Import license for non-Algerian citizens.

You can choose between two particular shipping methods to Algeria. Irrespective of the method you select, they are affordable and convenient.
- Roll On/Roll Off – this would allow you to ship your vehicle quickly and conveniently and for the smallest amount of money. However, the car would be exposed to the elements and you won’t be able to ship other belongings besides it. It has to contain only a car jack, floor mats, and your spare tire.
- Container Shipping – this method is more appropriate if you have a luxury car or a collectible one as it’s going to be safely stored within a private container. You can choose between a 20ft and 40ft container based on your demands and preferences and if the price is too steep you can go ahead and share it with someone else to cut it in half.
