Several documents are essential during a stay in Tunisia.

Thus, a valid identity card and a travel book (given by the travel agency if you are visiting the country on an organized trip) must be part of your checklist if you plan to go there.

On the other hand, the visa is not obligatory for a stay of less than or equal to three months.

Beyond these three months, it is imperative to apply for it, as well as for a residence permit, from the Tunisian Ministry of the Interior.

What about the passport?

Tunisia is a special case.

This is not mandatory... But only if you decide to leave as part of an organized trip (these stays organized by tour operators including a set of services at a fixed price).

Be careful though: this flexibility is not always observed.

Travelers who do not have a valid passport may therefore face a refusal to enter the territory.

Thus, France Diplomatie strongly advises travelers to bring their passports with them when staying in Tunisia.

For many months, Tunisia required travelers to arrive in the territory with a negative Covid test or a vaccination certificate.

However, the latest health restrictions linked to Covid-19 were lifted several weeks ago.

Thus, it is no longer necessary to certify immunization to Covid-19 to travel through the country of Jasmine.

Note, however, that in case of symptoms of infection, it is mandatory to wear a mask.

And this, via many airlines, such as the low-cost Transavia, the national company Tunisair, Nouvelair or Air France.

On the arrivals side: several airports welcome visitors, from that of Tunis to that of Monastir, via those of Djerba, Sfax and Enfidha.
