A tourist visa allows you to discover the whole of Algeria. However, to visit the southern regions of the country you will need an invitation from the Algerian Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts. It is issued at the request of an accredited travel agency and contains information about the timing and route of the trip. For road trips in the Sahara, a detailed itinerary is required. In other regions, a confirmation of a hotel reservation received directly, not printed from a website, is sufficient. Staying with friends requires an invitation from the hosts, certified by the local government. Be sure to check that your passport does not have any Israeli entry stamps - this may be a reason for visa denial.
