Algeria has reformed its migration law. On 25 June 2008, it adopted the law governing foreign nationals’ conditions of entry, stay and circulation, which modified for the first time the law ruling foreign nationals established in 1966. Then, on 25 February 2009, it reformed its penal code to add the offence of irregular exit from its territory for its citizens and foreign residents, as well as the crimes of migrant smuggling and trafficking in persons. Migrant smuggling is defined by the 2009 law as the organization, for purposes of profit, of any illegal exit from Algerian territory, whereas the facilitation of a foreign national’s irregular entry, stay or circulation is addressed by the 2008 law.
