There are three mobile network operators active in Algeria ranked in number of subscribers:

  • Djezzy, by Optimum Telecom Algeria 
  • Mobilis, by Algerie Telecom Mobile 
  • Ooredoo

SIM Registration and SIM validity Edit

The Algerian law has two specific rules on prepaid SIM-cards; one on mandatory user registration and one on its validity.

Every user of any SIM card, whether pre-paid or post paid and, regardless whether the user is a local resident or a visitor, has to be registered and for such has to provide with an offical ID (ID Card, Passport, Visa) and a copy of the same ID that has been notarised in Algeria, as well provide with an address (for which no proof is required, so for visitors hotel address will suffice). To get a notarised copy of your passport, you need to visit the town hall "mairie" البلدية where they can make a copy of your document and give it the necessary stamps. Because these civil administration offices are only open during office hours, and that means not on Friday's, this will be a hurdle to to take before walking into a store of one of the three operators.

The other rule is that, by law, providers have to switch off Pre-Paid SIM cards that have shown no activity for 3 months.This means that if you want to keep your SIM card alive you have to make sure to recharge it and to make at least one call or send one text message every 3 months. Fortunately roaming is activated by default on Algerian cards AND some external providers do recharge algerian phone numbers as well, making it not that difficult to keep the SIM alive.
