Abstract: Abstract This research work seeks to examine a specific issue of the Algerian public debt sustainability using a nonlinear model approach. The results obviously indicate that the existence of threshold effects in the Algerian public debt depends on the sixth lag in oil price (US $ 80.85 per barrel). Thus, nonlinear unit root tests accept the null hypothesis of the unit roots; this intends to convey that the time series of public debt is not stationary and therefore cannot sustain the public debt in Algeria over the long term.
