Upon arrival in Tunisia you must self-isolate at your hotel or place of residence for 14 days. If you wish to pay for an additional PCR test after seven days of self-isolation, you can do so at your own expense. If the result of this second test is negative you will be permitted to end your quarantine early. Upon entry you must sign a declaration to confirm that you will abide by these rules.
