    Do you know how long it takes for visas to be issued by the Tunisian Embassy London? I am travelling on the 29th of May and i just realised i needed a visa.Do you know by any chance if they have any premium service for quicker visas?

    Little Red - you can buy your visa on arrival and if you are coming for only 7 days then it will cost TND10.000 longer than that up to 30 days costs TND35.000 and you do not have to show confirmed or onward travel tickets. However, the Dinar is a closed currency and you cannot get it out of the country and the visa counter only accepts dinar, so they will take your passport, allow you to pass through immigration into the arrivals hall where you can change cash or withdraw from atm. Make sure you have the exact change as they can never 'find' change for you!!! It can take a little while so you need to keep popping your head into the window to find out where your visa is. I hope you have a great time here in Tunisie!!

    Gejsi - I am sure they will have a premium service however, if you are travelling on a British passport you do not need a visa..........you will be given 3 months visa free! However, if you are another nationality you should check with the Tunisian embassy for exact requirements.

    @Jay: Unfortunately, you'll have to organise a tourist visa BEFORE arriving in Tunisia, Jay. Get in touch with your local Tunisian embassy to find out what forms and documents you'll need.

    @imii: Hello. What do you mean by "United Kingdom Travel Document?" If you are referring to a British PASSPORT, then you don't require a visa for stays of up to 3 months in Tunisia. However, if you are referring to a British VISA (i.e. you have a Zimbabwean passport), then you WILL require a visa to enter Tunisia. Unfortunately, you will have to organise this visa BEFORE you arrive in Tunisia -- you can't get it on arrival.

    Hope this helps!

    Maka - if you are travelling on your Georgian passport then you MUST have your visa before you arrive. You should get in touch with your nearest Tunisian embassy for this and to get the information you need in regard to documentation.

    hi al travelling to tunisia next week and am wondering to get into the country do u just need ur passport? mine a uk one. do u need show proof of medical or travel insuance and also will they let u in if u have court conviction got fined some money back 10 years ago. please help thxs

    cheeks - of course you need a passport!! All countries require those entering to have passports or travel documents of some sort. As you are travelling on a UK passport you will be given entry visa free for up to 3 months. You do not need to show proof of anything but you should have at least some travel insurance in case your luggage goes missing or you are sick and need medical services. Like other countries, Tunisia has a computerised system for entry and if your conviction is registered they may question you but I doubt it. Should be fine.

    Hi there, I'm a South African passport holder and would like to go to Tunisia in around 3 weeks time for a holiday. After reading your posts I decided to call the Tunisian Embassy in London (as I live here) to make doubly sure I would be able to get a visa on arrival and was told that I would need to apply for a visa before I arrive and it takes 2 weeks to process. When I asked how long ago this had changed I was told around 2 years ago. Please can someone clarify, I am very confused as EVERYTHING I have read on the net says I can get a visa on arrival. Thanks so much.

    @Judi - South African nationals get a visa on arrival in Tunisia. See our visa page for more info: http://www.wordtravels.com/Travelguide/Countries/Tunisia/Visa

    Are still a RSA citizen with a ZA passport? If so, you get your visa for 3 dinars when going through immigration.

    Judi - the latest information I have is that you must have a visa prior to arrival. Right now we are having a lot of things changing including visas, immigration, customs etc, so in order to ensure that you are granted entry I would definitely get your visa before you arrive

    Tassawer - this is information from Immigration Tunisia : unless you have the below I'm afraid that you will need to have a visa prior to your arrival:

    "For a stay up to 3 months by holders of diplomatic or special passports issued to nationals of Belgium, Benin, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Pakistan & Thailand"

    It doesn't matter where you live, what residencies you may have it depends on the passport you travel with.

  • edited 6:20PM
    Sammy - yes you will need a visa. You need to have this prior to your arrival, however you can check the Tunisia embassy website for up to date information. I'm not sure of the costs however as an indication 30 days is usually around TND35.000
