Algerian ID Cards ready for pickup

Attention Algerian citizens!

The Consulate General finds that a significant number of biometric identity cards have not been claimed by their respective holders.

Given the importance of this document, as it is essential for various administrative procedures in Algeria. Therefore, we strongly urge all applicants to take immediate action and claim their ID cards.

To facilitate the process and keep you up-to-date about the status of your application, the Algerian Consulate General has implemented a new online tracking system. You can easily monitor the progress of your Algerian ID application by visiting our website at

Once your Algerian ID card is ready for pickup, we offer two convenient options:

  1. In-person collection at the Algerian Consulate General in New York during office hours, without the need for an appointment.
  2. Delivery by mail to your designated address.

Detailed requirements for both options are provided at the bottom of the ID Card Tracking page.

We encourage all citizens who have already applied for their Algerian ID to take advantage of this online tracking system, eliminating the need for multiple calls, inquiries, or visits to the Consulate General, saving valuable time and effort for everyone involved.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
