Since the Covid-19 crisis, France had drastically reduced the number of visas granted to Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco, conditioning them on efforts by these countries to accept their nationals expelled from France.

This normalization of the granting of visas to Algerian nationals comes after that with Tunisia at the end of August and that with Morocco announced Friday by the head of French diplomacy Catherine Colonna.

In September 2021, Paris decided to reduce the number of visas granted to Algeria and Morocco by 50%, and by 30% for Tunisia.

“It is not acceptable that we do not take back foreigners in an irregular situation who were identified as dangerous and disturbing public order,” French President Emmanuel Macron explained in November.
