visa for Svalbard


I'm from Algeria but I'm living in Moscow (Russia), I'm planning to visit Svalbard but before that I'd like to ask some quastions about the Visa, please.

When I read about that issue in the internet I didn't find a clear website to understand every thing about process, and I couldn't find an answer for my quastion, Do I need a visa to get to Svalbard or not?

I found that with SAS airlines I can make a reservation from Moscow to

Svalbard through Oslo and Tromso Airports, So I understood that I'll

stay in the international area and by logic I don't need a visa to go to Norway, but in the websites I read that I need a Visa type C !!!

So please please.......... Can you answer my quastion and explaine to me what I should to do to get to Svalbard !

thank you a lot.
