Biometric passports for Algerians in BC
The Algerians residing in BC-lower mainland kindly request the Algerian Consulate in Ottawa to make arrangement for providing proper consular services and allow its constituents to obtain their Algerian biometric passports. Given the high number of Algerians residing in Vancouver compared to the low number of personnel needed, sending personnel to arrange formalities that will allow us to fulfill our rights of obtaining a proper Algerian passport, is easier and economically more doable. Most Algerians residing in BC have families and cannot afford the cost and constraints related to travelling to Ottawa. The Last visit of the consulate personnel was not properly advertised and hence only a minority could have access to the services. We think it is unfair that cities like Quebec get this service and we don't. We urge you to analyze our situation. As Algerians we have the right to obtain a passport properly without the constraints of having to travel for mere fingerprints.
