Detailed Tourist Information

On 1 February, all direct flights between the UK and Tunisia (and other countries where the new COVID-19 strain has been detected) were suspended until further notice.

Travellers entering Tunisia from all other countries (where the new strain has not been detected) will be subject to the following measures that may change at short notice. You should check the latest rules with your airline or travel provider before travelling

On 21 December, the Tunisian government suspended the entry into Tunisia of passengers transiting through the UK.

You must take a PCR test less than 72 hours before travel and show evidence of the negative test result, with the date of the test clearly labelled, at your point of departure for Tunisia. Children under 12 years old are exempt from this requirement. You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test to facilitate your travel to another country. You should take a private test and ensure the test certificate includes the date of the test.

You must complete this Tunisian government short online questionnaire before travelling.

You must download and use the Tunisian government’s ‘track and trace’ application on your mobile phone.

On arrival, you must self-isolate at a government-approved hotel for 14 days. You must pay for this accommodation yourself and present your hotel booking before you are permitted to travel to Tunisia.

If you wish to pay for a second PCR test after 7 days, and this comes back negative, you will be permitted to leave quarantine early.
