Covid-19 and the opening of borders



Published : 02-07-2020

Reopening of Tunisia's borders after the first wave of Covid-19 began on June 27.


In order to preserve Tunisia’s excellent record in the face of the pandemic (only 50 dead and 178 cases active on July 15, also read: Tunisia and Covid-19), differentiated measures are applied depending on the country of residence of travelers.


The Ministry of Health regularly publishes the list of countries divided into three categories.



For the least affected countries (green list), there are no specific measures for entry into the country.


For the countries on the orange list, it will be necessary to present a negative PCR test and to respect sanitary measures for 14 days in order to preserve the local population.


Those staying at the hotel will only be able to leave for supervised excursions. Those who have a place of residence in Tunisia will have to stay there in self-isolation. In both cases, this period may be shortened provided that a second negative PCR test is presented after the sixth day.


The neighboring countries of Tunisia are the subject of bilateral conventions.


For all other countries (red), only Tunisian citizens (or with their usual residence in Tunisia) can enter by presenting a negative PCR test and respecting strict containment measures.


In addition, a medical questionnaire to be completed on site or available online is provided by the carriers.


Remember that all Tunisian hotels currently open apply the Ready & Safe health protocol to ensure the safety of their customers: improved hygiene, elimination of self-service in restaurants, masks for hotel staff etc.
