Tunisia: COVID-19 Stay Informed

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

All travellers, regardless of country of departure, will need to provide proof of a negative PCR test result, taken 72 hours (3 days) prior to arrival. This must include a QR code that authorities can scan.

Travellers are required to undertake a mandatory 7-day self-isolation period, regardless of where you travel from. Self-isolation can only end if you have a negative PCR test result at the end of the period. 

You are exempt from self-isolation if you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or if you have tested positive for COVID-19 at least six weeks prior to the date of check-in. You'll need to provide evidence of either of these situations. This can be official evidence from the relevant health authorities confirming you have tested positive, or a vaccination certificate with a QR code issued by the competent health authorities. 

A curfew and other restrictions are in place. Follow the advice of local authorities, as these may differ between governorates.

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.
