From 1 December, you can enter Tunisia without providing proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test.
On arrival in Tunisia, you must share your contact details and travel information with authorities.
For visits lasting less than 90 days, British passport holders do not need a visa to enter Tunisia. You must be able to demonstrate that you have enough money to cover the cost of your stay, and provide evidence of your return ticket for leaving the country.
See Visas for more information.
Officially, evidence of a hotel reservation is required to enter the country, however this policy is not applied uniformly. In the majority of cases, if asked, an explanation of alternative accommodation arrangements will be accepted.
A small number of visitors have been refused entry to Tunisia, or delayed, for not being able to provide sufficient evidence of a hotel reservation. If you are refused entry to Tunisia, the Embassy will not be able to intervene as entry to the country is at the discretion of the Tunisian authorities.
Should you need assistance with matters other than this, you can call the consular team on +216 71 108 700.
Children and young people
There are no specific requirements for children and young people.
