    CT - I am sure there is an online application form, however as you are in the UK you need to keep trying the embassy. I can't tell you exactly how long it takes for you visa but you need to apply well in advance of your travel here.

    Hi,

    I have a Australian passport currently living in the UK. As it is based on the passport do I need to obtain a visa to visit Tunisia for a 5 day holiday? I've tried contacting the Tunisian embassy in London by phone but am not getting any response. I have read that i can obtain them when I get there but would prefer to do it before hand if possible and I'm not sure how up to date that information was

    Appreciate any help

    Hi Steve - as an Australian passport holder it will cost you only TND10.000 for a stay of up to 7 days here in tunisia on your arrival at the airport.

    Hello,

    I'm an Australian passport holder living in Australia. I've recently applied for a visa to undertake a student internship at a company in Tunis. This is a paid position with a duration of 12 months. However, despite providing a copy of my paperwork and their requested documents, I think they have given me a three month tourist visa. While I'll be able to get into the country, I'm worried that this will not allow me to work and its obviously not long enough.

    Is it possible to apply or change my visa to a longer stay/working visa once I am in Tunisia? My local embassy has been rather unhelpful and non-descript in their correspondence and I am supposed to be arriving next week? Please Help! Much Appreciated!

    Wade - I don't think this is a problem. Once you arrive in Tunisia the company that you are working with should organise a further working visa with the Bureau d'Affaires des Etrangers in Tunis.

    I do hope you will enjoy your year here in beautiful Tune town but don't just work, get out and about to see some of this country.

    Mohamed - the latest information that I have is that as a citizen of St Kitts and Nevis you can enter Tunisia on your country's passport without a visa. You will be given 3 months to stay here visa free. However as always, check the Tunisi Embassy website for any updated or changed visa conditions.

    Rong - I'm sorry but there is no way for you to enter Tunisia without a visa! Your boyfriend cannot do this for you. You should contact the Embassy in Beijing as you can prepare your documents and send your passport for the visa to be processed. They will send it back to you. If you arrive into Tunisia without a visa they are legally entitled to deny you entry and send you back on the next plane. Surely a trip to Beijing is not nearly as far as here to Tunisia???

    You will need these dox at the very least:

    Original birth certificate translated into French/Arabic
    Certificate of no impediment translated into French/Arabic
    Passport - bio page translated
    I'm not sure what other documents the Tunisian authority will require from a Chinese national. You should definitely check this with the Tunisian Embassy in Beijing.

    Rong - I am sorry but I am not qualified to give instructions on this, however, if you have a profession such as a retail assistant, accountant, secretary, tailor something like that then you put that on the form.

    could you please tell me what documents should i have ar how to do to get a visa to tunisia...
    PS : i don't work currently to provide a letter from my employee.
  • edited 8:45AM
    Rong - there is no way he can transfer money from Tunisia. The Tunisian Dinar is a closed currency meaning that it is not exchangeable outside Tunisia. He can't transfer it by internet or by any means. He should know this. There is no facility in this country to send money out!
  • edited 8:45AM
    Ampha - in order for you to enter Tunisia you must have a visa before you travel. You should contact the Embassy of Tunisia in London, or go to their website and download the visa application form. This will also give you the documents required for you to travel to Tunisia.

    Thanks

    Bella - no, you do not need to get a visa in advance of your travel. As a Greek passport holder you can get your visa on arrival into Tunis.

    Hi,

    I am an Indian passport holder, staying in UK. I will be going on a cruise to 4 Schengen countries which includes France, Italy, Spain & Malta. Tunisia is also included in the itinerary . The cruise will be staying in Tunisia for only 4 hours. And I intend to stay in my cruise during these 4 hour with my baby. The cruise trip is so near that I cannot even think of doing a tunisia visa. In this case, do I need to do a Tunisia visa if I stay inside the cruise? Please help me in this regard.

    Thanks
    Mita
  • edited 8:45AM
    Mita - my understanding is that if you do not disembark then you do not need a visa. however, you should check with the cruise line or with your agent.

    I am a british national with a UK passport and I am looking for some advice. I am getting married to my Tunisian boyfriend and am planning to move to Tunisia and am not sure what the legal procedure is, can anyone give me some advice?
  • edited 8:45AM
    Da - mabrouk. After your marriage your husband will take your passport and probably marriage contract to the local police station and ask for a carte de sejour (visitor stay). This will be issued as a temporary card for 3 months, after this you will apply for another carte de sejour which will be issued for a period of 2 years. During this time you can take citizenship if you wish as you have the right as married to a Tunisian. If you choose not then just before the 2 year card expires you take it back to the police and they will issue you with a further 2 years.

    I am a Pakistani national and was working in Libya. I applied for transit visa for Tunisia and got refused ( no reason mentioned by the embassy). Is there another way I can get visa on arrival as I am intending to enter Libya via Tunisia.
  • edited 8:45AM
    Jaylo - you can ask the embassy for the reason they refused your transit visa. Were you travelling onto Libya the same day by air? Or were you going by road? the crossing between our two countries is difficult at the moment and I wouldn't advise anyone without good cause to go into Libya as there is a lot of trouble with the warring tribes. However, if you have a diplomatic passport then you will be given a visa to enter. Did you give the Tunisian embassy the reason for your transit visa and the dates of onward travel?
  • edited 8:45AM
    The embassy has just given me a chance of reapplying again after 1 month. I was planning to travel to Libya by road as my company had made arrangements at the Tunisia-Libya border. I gave the embassy all sort of details but they just simply refused my application without mentioning any reason
  • edited 8:45AM
    Jaylo - I would have a letter of support and employment from your company which should assist in your gaining the visa

    hi am libyan national but am holding UK TRAVEL DOCUMENT i dont have libyan passport do i need visa to vist tunisa
  • edited 8:45AM
    Mosab - You can't enter tunisia without a passport (or any other country for that matter). You will need to get your Libyan passport before you travel to Tunisia and then you can have your visa on arrival

    Hi Lesley do you know what it takes for them to approve a visa and then a permanent residency in Tunisia. I just want to know if I can do it? I heard they look for work there but what if you have your own business already and can support yourself is that enough? I understand you can apply for it but what do you need to get it?
    Also I read you must apply at a tunisian embasy where is Tunisian Embasy? If you are a us citizen.

    Hello, can you please help as I am receiving conflicting information. My husband and I have a week's holiday booked in Tunisia. I am British, he is South African. Does he need to apply for a visa in advance, or can he get one on arrival in Tunisia? If he does need one in advance, could you tell us where he can get the form and what it costs?
    Thank you for your advice.
  • edited 8:45AM
    traveler44 - first you will need to get a carte de sejour (visitor card), you can then renew this for 5 years at which time you may become a permanent citizen. You have to have money in a bank account and retain a certain balance monthly. We are not looking for anyone to work here, we have a very high unemployment rate and jobs do not go to foreign workers if they can be done by a Tunisian.

    As a US citizen you can travel to Tunisia visa free for 3 months and in that time you can gain your visit permit etc.
  • edited 8:45AM
    CJ - you as a British passport holder can travel to Tunisia visa free. My latest information is that a person travelling on a SA passport must have a visa prior to entry. He can get the visa from the Tunisian embassy nearest to you. I'm sorry but I don't know the cost but for other nationalities it is usually TD10.000 for 7 days.

    Lesley, thank you very much for the information :)

    Jayzee - as an Indian passport holder you must have your visa before arriving into Tunisia. You can do this by applying at your nearest Tunisian embassy

    Orhidey - Yes, you still need a visa. I believe that the only Tunisian embassy is in London and that is where you will need to get your visa from. You can check with the embassy as to the cost of the visa
