In 2015, only 40 million were living in Algeria. According to Statista, this number is predicted to increase to 44 million by 2020. This increase is likely to be driven by an increase in average life expectancy, which in turn is due to higher urbanisation.
However, do not get fooled by Algeria’s small population. The nation’s economy is one of the largest and most open economies the entire African continent. The country boasts the 8th largest natural gas reserves in the world. It offers tons of opportunities in agriculture and oil and gas sectors.

1. Why Do UK Documents Need Attestation to be Used in Algeria?
For any document to be considered valid for use in a country other than the one in which it was issued, the document needs to be legalised. For nations that are part of the Hague Convention, an apostille certificate is attached to documents, such as birth and marriage certificates, degrees, diplomas, etc., to legalise them for use in other member states of the Hague Convention. However, nations that are not member states, require attestation of documents by their embassy in the document issuing country. Algeria is one such country that requires Algeria Embassy legalization for all UK documents to be used in Algeria.
The process of attestation of degree certificates and other documents for Algeria is done in two stages:
- UK apostille certification on the document(s)
