TUNISIA: COVID-19. Update: The Tunisian authorities have announced the reopening of the borders starting from June 27 and have ordered new containment measures for COVID-19, intended for those who enter Tunisia from abroad. There is currently a very significant increase in the number of infections and deaths in all Governorates, with a consequent maximum pressure on public and private health structures: we invite you to strictly observe the health prevention protocols and to avoid gatherings. Extreme caution and respect for social distancing and the obligation to use a mask are recommended, in light of the limited capacity of the Tunisian health system to cope with a further increase in resuscitation patients. Given the health situation in the country and the measures taken by local authorities, it is recommended that non-essential travel be postponed.

Restrictive measures in force throughout the country (extended until February 14, 2021 included): in light of the rapid deterioration of the epidemiological picture, a night curfew is in force from October 30 from 20.00 to 5.00. It provides: obligation to use personal protective equipment (masks) and to comply with social distancing and hygiene measures; prohibition of movement between Governorates except for workers, students and exceptional cases; prohibition of gathering more than 4 people in public places, with the exception of means of transport; suspension of attendance at places of worship; ban on public and private events; reduced hours for public offices with shifts and alternating teams and teleworking; suspension of school lessons; closing of bars and restaurants (take away service only); invitation for over 65s to limit public outings. There are penalties for offenders. All compatriots are recommended to strictly comply with the emergency rules issued by local authorities and to collaborate fully with the police forces that carry out the checks, strengthened throughout the country with the increase in infections.


Those returning to Italy from Tunisia and Morocco must still fill in a specific SELF-CERTIFICATION ON THE REASONS FOR TRAVEL , must undergo fiduciary isolation for 14 days and CANNOT use means of public transport other than that used to enter Italy . The rental of cars and the use of taxis or rental with driver is allowed.

In this regard, the self-certifications that the direct interested parties, Italian and foreign, must submit for any movement, starting from the departure for our country (for example boarding by plane or ferry), subsequently to the border authorities and, gradually, in each of the numerous checks carried out by the police on the national territory. Self-certifications are subject to cross-checks and, where they are found to be false or inconsistent, they can lead to administrative pecuniary sanctions or, in some cases, even criminal ones.
