Travel Advice: Tunisia – Feb 2012

  • Most visits to Tunisia are trouble-free, but all travellers should be aware of the current political and security situation, restrictions imposed, and the impact of the situation in neighbouring Libya.
  • Tunisia is no longer experiencing the widespread unrest that occurred during the events of January 2011 and most visits are trouble-free. Public order is maintained in most places, including the main tourist coastal areas, but all travellers should be aware that spontaneous and unpredictable events such as political and industrial protests still occur throughout the country.  While most forms of protest pass without incident we recommend that British nationals avoid all forms of demonstration.  Foreigners have not been targeted but there is a risk of incidental violence if you are caught up in an event that does not pass peacefully. A State of Emergency still exists and curfews or other temporary movement restrictions may be imposed or changed with little or no notice. You should observe instructions given by local security authorities and/or your tour operator and are advised to carry a copy of your passport, or other form of photo ID, at all times as proof of nationality and identity.
