    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?

    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.

    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?

    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

    Jaylo - I would have a letter of support and employment from your company which should assist in your gaining the visa

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hello!
    I am an Indian passport holder with a US green card but I live in Geneva. I would like to visit Tunis for 3 days with my spouse. Can we get a visa on arrival?

    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

    Hey, I am a New Zealand Citizen planning on getting married later this year to my Tunisian partner living in Tunis. I would like to know how I go about obtaining the visa required to enter the country. There seems to be no embassy of Tunisia in New Zealand and the nearest one I can find in Australia does not seem to allow any contact as according to there website contact details. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, Krystal

    Krystal - New Zealand nationals must apply for the visa to enter Tunisia with the embassy in Japan

    Hi, Lesley
    I am a Latvian passport holder, but living in UK for 4 years and i am planning to go for holidays to Tunisia, Scanes. ( to book holidays through Thomas Cook). Do I need a visa? and if yes, can I get it on arrival in Tunisia? Many thanks.

    Margo - you need to have a visa before you arrive into Tunisia. You should ask with Thomas Cook who may assist you with getting this. Oh and by the way, it doesn't matter where you live, what residency visas you have, it depends on the passport you use.

    Thanks, Lesley. But I thought I do not need a visa if I am going to book package holiday.

    Margo - you will need a visa and this is why I ask you to check with Thomas Cook as they may be organising a group visa as part of the package holiday.

    Hello - I am a South African passport holder. I will be on a cruise having a 6 hour stop over in Tunisia. Do I need a transit visa or a tourist visa to disembark for the day?
