How TecEx Can Help You Import into Algeria

As the largest country in Africa, Algeria is a land of sizeable economic potential. Yet, despite its considerable population size, internet usage in Algeria remains low. However, demand for ICT technologies is high in this still burgeoning market even as it tries to catch up with some of its more advanced neighbors. Both the government and crucial industry contributors have displayed strong commitment towards developing the sector in line with growing demand, business expansion, and rising consumer purchasing power.

Like Morocco, Algeria provides a gateway between Africa and Europe, making trade a fundamental part of the country’s ecosystem. However, it is strictly controlled. Limitations in the medical sector on certain medical equipment and pharmaceuticals are glaring and heavily regulated by quality and conformity restrictions imposed on certain goods. In the Tech space government insists that imports meet specific testing, labeling, or certification requirements before being permitted into the country. The compliance work needed to satisfy this ideally placed customs requirements is grueling and can have extensive lead times.
