Tunisia is lifting a large number of COVID-19-related restrictions for travelers from all over the world.
For several months, minor travelers over the age of six were required to have a document of full vaccination or a negative PCR test in order to enter Tunisia. This restriction will now be lifted.
To visit the country, adult travelers had to present a negative PCR test, among other things.
Due to the decrease in the incidence of COVID-19, including the new Omicron strain, adult guests who have a document certifying that they have received the full vaccination package can enter the country without taking a PCR test. This also applies to the vaccine recognized in Tunisia, Sputnik V, if the vaccination certificate indicates that the person has received two doses of the vaccine, it is safe to cross the border.
Travelers who don’t bother to get vaccinated in time must present negative PCR test results. In addition, a five-day quarantine period in a designated hotel awaits them at their own expense. After five days, they will have to take a second PCR test and pay for it from their own pockets. Then wait for the result. And in the case of a negative PCR test you can go on vacation. But at least five days will be lost plus extra money.
There is selective testing for coronavirus at the airport terminal. In the case of a positive result, even with a certificate of vaccination, a five-day quarantine awaits the arrival.
The “Passenger Search Form” has also been cancelled for the time being. This became known from the statement of the Tunisian National Tourist Office.
