algerian embassy busy ?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Hamza and I have been trying to reach the Algerian Embassy for the last few days, with no answer. We call, and the voice recording comes on. We go to the consular section, then another recording, that says, they can not answer the phone. Has anyone else had issues with this? Is there a better way to reach them ? We tried Emailing as well, a couple times now, with no answer... and its been a week. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there a more direct way to get a hold of someone there? Has anyone else had similar problems with this embassy ?

0112137 70 08 20 00

0112137 70 08 22 40

These are the two numbers we are calling. The first is for the embassy, and the second for the consular section, at the embassy.

This is the email we are using...consularalgiers@state.gov

Thanks for any suggestions

Danni

I always emailed them and received a response very quickly....usually within hours. Only one time did I have to wait a week or so. I'm not sure if they've gotten busier since then. It's possible because it was over a year ago.

I've never tried calling, but the email you posted is the one I used then.

Hi. It's been years since I contacted them. But at that time, they only answered the phone during certain hours. For that second number you listed, I think it's 1:30 to 4:00pm mon-thurs and Sunday 2pm-4pm. I was able to get through to them back then, but only after several tries during those hours. They always answered my email within a few days, sometimes on the same day. I used the e-mail address you listed except that the letters c and a are capitalized.

ConsularAlgiers@state.gov I have no idea if that makes a difference.

Looking at your timeline, I noticed that our interviews were the same week. Ours was 7/12/2008.

My last communication with the embassy was in July 2009 when his visa was issued(took a year because of waiver processing) and we had the same experience contacting them. I asked my husband a little while ago because I remembered he had to call them, and he also said they only answer the phone during set hours.

I think email is probably the best way to get in touch with them. I always put the IV number in the subject line of the email and a brief synposis of why I was emailing. Ex: ALG2007XXXXXXX Has file/waiver approval been received from DHS ROME? I got a response to that email in like 2 hours

Thanks for the reply. We did try between those hours, quite a few times. Maybe they are just really busy this week. I sent another Email, maybe the last one got lost ? Who knows. We will just keep trying! :) Eventually, someone will answer! I hope. Thanks again

Hi,

We just got our K1 interview scheduled! We called the number that you have and they answered right away. That was yesterday. The email that they gave me was different than the one we had previously.
