"What’s wrong?" Macron asked the crowd which suddenly grew tight as it drew more and more people. "Visas, Please! Give us visas, Mr. President," people started shouting. However, most of the ensuing conversation between Macron and those who came to greet him is inaudible, drowned out by noise of the crowd.
"This morning I saw many young people who asked [me] for a visa," Macron said at a later speech, "A visa [for France] is not a lifetime project." However, in the meantime, he did call for an easing of bureaucratic restrictions for student exchanges and business trips between the countries.
More than 400,000 Algerians get Schengen visas for France annually, according to Reuters data.
