Abstract

 

Law n° 81-10 of 11 July 1981 Relative to the conditions of employment of foreign workers (Official Journal n° 28, 14 July 1981)
The law defines the legal framework governing employment of foreign nationals in Algeria.

Employment of foreign nationals is submitted to the issue of a work permit or a work temporary leave. Those are delivered only for posts which cannot be undertaken by domestic nationals or emigrants. Nevertheless, when work duration is less than 3 months, only the work temporary leave is needed, and can be re-conducted once. When work duration does not exceed 15 days, no leave is required.

Work permit lasts 2 years. It is delivered to legal wife, husband, widow and divorced of Algerian nationals.

Foreign nationals enjoy the same rights as domestic nationals, like those relating to wages or travel expenses.
