Tunisia first reopened its borders for tourism in June but has changed entry requirements many times since. In March 2021, Tunisia simplified its entry rules, which we cover in detail below. 

While many Europeans are familiar with holidaying in Tunisia, as it’s only a 2-hour direct flight away, the destination is just recently gaining popularity in the Western hemisphere.

Known for having a variety of historical and cultural attractions, like the ancient city of Carthage, but also affordable and modern beachfront resorts, Tunisia is attracting more and more tourists each year. 

Here all the latest COVID-19 entry requirements for Tunisia and everything travelers need to know before booking their trip.

I’m also going to Tunis but from LAX in January to visit my boyfriend. He was going to get a house for me to stay at but now I’m thinking if an Airbnb is best.

Same here! My boyfriend is also going to rent an apartment for me, it's cheaper than an Airbnb. I dont know if you're allowed to quarantine in an airbnb. I'm also flying out in January. How long will you be gone for? I'll be there for 2 months.
