MENA , Wednesday 10 Jul 2019

Egyptian Ambassador to Algeria Ayman Mosharafa said that the Egyptian embassy in the country has issued 5,400 visas for Algerian fans to help them support their national football team in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), currently held in Egypt.

In statements to MENA on Tuesday, Mosharafa said the consular department at the embassy has been working in full swing since June to finalise issuing entry visas to Egypt, which he said have increased after the Algerian team qualified for the quarter-finals.

The ambassador added that charter flights will be operated as of Wednesday evening to transport Algerian fans to Egypt to attend the Desert Warriors’ clash against Ivory Coast in the AFCON’s quarter-finals on Thursday.
