Things can change a lot in a year!

FWIW, several years ago - mid 90s, it was definitely possible to get Algerian visas in Agadez, though it took us nearly 3 weeks, with "next day" promises being made and broken daily.

We got Algerian visas in Bamako last week on UKL passports in two days. The initial reply was that they would only issue them to Mali residents. They said that it was unusual for them to make exceptions but they did! Cost was 25'000 CFA.

We have since heard that it is virtually impossible to get the Algerian visa in Niamy but a group of French got theirs after three weeks of effort. All others gave up.

If it may help you...

it's easy to get an Algerian visa in Accra, Ghana. It took me two hours and cost $20 for a three month visa. You might need a letter of introduktion from your employer. I have a Swedish passport.
The embassy is at opposit the Nigerian embassy in Osu. Visa section is open Thusday and Thirsday 9-12.
The Togolese embassy also in Osu issue Visa Entente for Togo, Benin, BF, and Niger for 20000 franc CFA.
