All travelers regardless of vaccination status:

Travelers over the age of 18 may be subject to random rapid or PCR tests on arrival. If the test is positive, the traveler will be required to self-isolate for five days. If symptoms persist, they will be required to isolate for a further two days.

To be admitted into the country you must provide evidence of a booking reservation for the quarantine hotel and a transport voucher for travel to the quarantine hotel.

You will be required to do a PCR test during the last 24 hours of your stay and if it is positive you will be transferred to a health isolation center.

Fully Vaccinated:

If you have been vaccinated, you can enter Tunisia but you must show official proof of vaccination issued by the national health authority of your country of residence.

You must have been vaccinated:

  • At least 28 days before travelling (Janssen vaccine)
  • At least seven days before travelling (all other vaccines).

You are exempt from the mandatory quarantine if:

  • you can present official evidence to prove you have been fully vaccinated
  • you are under the age of 18 and unaccompanied or travelling with vaccinated adults. You will need to self-isolate at your accommodation
  • you are travelling for medical reasons and have official evidence from the health authority

Not Fully Vaccinated:

Travelers over the age of 18 who have not been vaccinated must self-isolate at the place they are staying for five days, and present on arrival either:

  • a PCR test less than 48 hours before travel
  • or a rapid lateral flow test less than 24 hours before travel with dated evidence of a negative result. This test must include a QR code

If you’re not fully vaccinated and aged 17 and under, you do not need to take a test.
