Moving to Tunisia: Do you need a monthly income?

This discussion was created from comments split from: Living in Tunisia permanently.


  • hello
    i wonder if anyone knows if it is possible to get the permanent residency without a monthly income but with an initial amount in the bank as i am 56 and not eligible for ss.
    thank you so much
  • @johnlandis
    You can show a lump sum in your bank account. I am not sure of the required amount you will need
    The best thing to do is check with your local police station as requirements tend to vary in Tunisia. There does not seem to be a hard and fast rule.
    Lesley our Tunisian expert will hopefully be along and provide some more advice.
  • @johnlandis - you don't need a monthly income but you must bring into the country an amount equivalent to tnd10,000 annually. You also need to prove that you can support yourself as there are no facilities for 'welfare' for foreigners.
