Summary VIDEO: Can UK residents Travel to Tunisia?
Can UK residents travel to Tunisia?
According to the Foreign Office, all but essential travel is advised for the entire country, excluding a number of regions where all travel is banned.
The border with Libya is advised against, along with the Chaambi Mountains National Park.
Holiday hotspots including Hammamet, Sousse and Monastir remain off the list.
It is also not included on the air bridge list, meaning Brits can face a two-week quarantine when returning to the UK from Tunisia.
The travel ban means Brits won’t be protected by insurance if something happens abroad.
Will you have to quarantine when entering Tunisia?
Despite this, Tunisia is allowing UK tourists to enter the country with no restrictions.
This means no rules or testing before departing or self-isolation on arrival.
The UK is on the green list meaning it is considered a safe country – countries on the orange or red list face additional testing and quarantine.
However, the UK Foreign Office warns: “The Tunisian authorities are updating country classifications regularly so please ensure you check these pages for the latest status before travelling.”
Are flights to Tunisia running?
Charter flights to Tunisia have resumed from today from some European locations – commercial airlines are yet to resume a normal schedule from the UK.
Air, land and sea borders resumed from June 27 from a number of countries, the Minister of Tourism, Mohamed Ali Toumi, confirmed.
Transport Minister Anouar Maârouf added: “We’re in discussions with all the countries we had direct flights with and talks are ongoing.”
Holidaymakers from France, Germany and Luxembourg returned earlier this week – Brits are yet to.
