Entry visa requirements for Tunisia

edited October 2010 in - Tunisia
I am a New Zealand passport holder, working in Cairo, Egypt. I am attending an education conference in Tunis, Tunisia at the end of this month. Do I:

1.Need a Tunisian entry visa?

2. If yes, am I able to apply for it on arrival?

Many thanks for your assistance.
Kind regards

    Ushing - as a NZ passport holder you must have a visa prior to your arrival. You should contact the Tunis embassy in Cairo for this and supply documents which they will request. You cannot get your visa on arrival!! You must have it in your passport before you travel.

    Salem Mohammed - as a UAE passport holder you do not need a visa to enter Tunisia. You are given 3 months visa free for your visit here.

    Reyan - you must obtain a visa before you enter Tunisia. You can do this by applying at your nearest Tunisian embassy. I am not sure that you will be granted a visa for 3 months however, you should discuss this with the embassy.

    i am a nigerian citizen but live in the uk with a residence permit, will i need a visa to enter tunisia?

    Mrs A - it means nothing that you have residency in the UK - visas are dependant on the country of your passport. If you are intending to travel on a Nigerian passport then you MUST have a visa prior to your arrival into Tunisia. You must arrange this with the Tunisian embassy in the UK

    HII IM PLANING TO GO TO TUNISIA IN SUMMER I LIVE IN USA BUT I JUST HAVE MY RESIDENT CARD AND IM FROM ECUADOR SO DO I NEED A VISA ???

    Kitty, as per my previous post - it doesn't matter where you live or what residency you hold, if you are travelling on your home country passport, in this case from Eduador you need a visa prior to travelling to Tunisia. you must apply for this through the Tunisian Embassy closest to you.

    i'm a nigerian going on a medittereanean cruise. i have the required shengen visa but do not have tunisian visa and we are stopping in tunisia for about 5 hrs. what do u think? will i be alright? i dont mind staying in the vessel for the period of time we are in tunisia. i would have loved to come down to look around but the process of getting a tunisian visa from ireland where i live is very hectic. i need to travel to uk for it and i need a uk visa to go to uk so.....

    As a Nigerian you must have a pre-arranged visa for entry to tunisia. If you want to make sure about the requirements then you must contact the embassy in the UK. You may be able to arrange this by secure mail. You should get off the boat and have a look around. Tunis our capitol is fantastic and the souq and old medina is wondrous. It will be worth your troubles I can assure you

    im a jordanian national holding a UAE residence visa, can i travel to Tunisia without a pre-arrange visa?
  • edited 10:02PM
    Ruby - it doesn't matter where you live or what residency you hold. If you are travelling on a Jordanian passport then you need to have a visa prior to arrival. However, you may be able to purchase this on your arrival...........but please contact the embassy nearest to you and check this information. I may be wrong and cannot be held responsible. If you want to make sure that you will not be turned away then buy your visa before arrival

    Sniper - mabrouk. Have you ever been to Tunisia? If you wish to settle in Tunisia your first step is to register with the police and get a temporary carte de sejour then you can apply for permanent residency and eventually citizenship if you wish. There are many marriage customs here in Tunisia and it will depend where your fiancee comes from as to what you need to do and organise. You can send me an email as below and I can answer all your questions

    MR. LESLEY,

    I´m Latvia´s passport holder and have been in Tunisia 3 times.I know that if I´m going as tourist and have reservation of hotel I don´t need visa but last two times I didn´t had reservations and in Monastir´s airport they didn´t asked Visa but in Tunis airport did,so I don´t understand how does it works.
    I´m going to marry with tunisian so what kind of documents do I need to prepare?

    Thank you

    Mabrouk Claudia - I think you may have come on charter flights to Monastir in which case the visas are usually handled by the airline, however, Tunis does not accept charter flights and you come on your own recognaissance which means you will need a visa. You may need this prior to arrival. Where are you going to stay in Tunisia this time? If you have a hotel reservation then it shouldn't be a problem.

    As for the documents you need to marry you will need to check with the Embassy as Tunisia has different requirements from different countries. Certainly you will need a document from your country known as a Certificate of No Impediment which details that you are free to marry, you will need your passport, birth certificate and if you have been married previously your original marriage certificate and divorce papers. All these need to be original, translated into French/Arabic and certified. Your fiance should be able to advise you.......he is in Tunisia and it's easy for him to find out all the requirements for you.

    Mohammed - I presume that you will be travelling on your Indian passport? In this case you will need a visa before you travel. Contact the Embassy of Tunisia in London and they will assist you with required documentation and the visa.

    I am a New Zealander living in the UK on a 2 year youth mobility visa. I am planning on travelling to Tunisia next month. Will i require a visa to enter or can I enter on my UK visa?
  • edited 10:02PM
    Darren, it doesn't matter where you live, what visas you have it depends on your passport and as I presume you will travel on your NZ passport you need a visa before you arrive. NZ cannot get their visa on arrival. Please contact the Tunisia embassy in London and they will assist you with the documentation you require and the visa application forms. Remember, you must have a visa pre-arrival into Tunis.
