    When you apply for your next Algerian visa I would send your new passport and your old passport along with your marriage certificate and any other documents required by the Algerian embassy.
    It is normal practice when applying for a visa from any country when you have a new passport, to submit the expired passport as proof of your visa history.
  • ok thanks will i get my old passport back as i dont know as i never applied for new passport?
  • @mariahamza
    I thought you were a British citizen so why would you send your passport to the Algerian Embassy to change to your married name?
  • yes i am but i want to change my name on my passport so i need to send my new passport to the Algerian consulate when i do my visa because i will be going back to Algeria in September
