Tunisia: COVID-19 Stay Informed

For Australian Citizens residing in Tunisia, please register with the Embassy of Canada.

All flights from and to the United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia have been suspended due to the new COVID−19 strain. While there are no direct flights from Australia, Tunisia will not allow travellers coming from or having transited through any of these countries to enter. This ban applies until further notice.  

All travellers, regardless of country of departure, will need to provide a negative PCR test result, taken 72 hours (3 days) prior to arrival.

All passengers must quarantine for 14-days, at an approved hotel or resort. On the 7th day of the visitor's stay, travellers can take a PCR test, of which the negative results will release them from quarantine early. 

All visitors must download the Track and Trace contact tracing app and use if for the duration of their stay in the country. 

It is mandatory to wear a face mask in public and in workplaces.

Follow the advice of local authorities.
