National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
We currently advise that all New Zealanders do not travel overseas at this time due to the outbreak of COVID-19, associated health risks and widespread travel restrictions. The global situation remains complex and rapidly changing. International travel can be complicated with fewer international flights available and disruptions to transit routes and hubs. Any destination could experience a sudden increase in cases of COVID-19 and a heightened risk to travellers of contracting the virus. Strict health measures and movement restrictions could be imposed suddenly. Should you decide to travel despite our advice, be prepared to remain overseas longer than you intended. You should also be aware that your travel insurance may not cover travel disruption or medical expenses. Managed Isolation and Quarantine in New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand must undertake 14 days of government-provided managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ). Detailed information about MIQ requirements in New Zealand can be found at www.miq.govt.nz. Pre-departure testing requirements for travellers to New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand (excluding those from Antarctica, Australia and most Pacific Islands) must show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result before departure. Detailed information about pre-departure testing requirements can be found on the Unite Against Covid-19 website here. We recognise that some New Zealanders do continue to live and travel overseas. We continue to provide destination-specific advice about other safety and security risks below.

Danish government

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Tunesien pga. COVID-19. Erhvervsrejser anses som nødvendige rejser og kan derfor gennemføres. Færdigvaccinerede og deres medrejsende børn under 18 år samt tidligere smittede med fast bopæl i Danmark er undtaget anbefalingen om, at alle ikke-nødvendige rejser frarådes til orange lande og regioner. De kan derfor rejse. Vær dog fortsat opmærksom på lokale indrejserestriktioner. Information om lokale restriktioner, karantæne- og testkrav kan findes hos den danske ambassade i Algier (som dækker Tunesien), da der kan være krav om fx COVID-19 test, vaccinedokumentation, udfyldning af formularer el.lign. Du kan læse mere om, hvordan du skal forholde dig ift. test og isolation, når du kommer hjem fra en udenlandsrejse på coronasmitte.dk. Du kan få svar på ofte stillede spørgsmål her. Rejseklar og Danskerlisten Du bør downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der sker større ændringer i indrejserestriktionerne, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve. Andre sikkerhedsrisici Hvis du rejser til Tunesien, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed. Der er undtagelsestilstand i Tunesien pga. risikoen for terror. Det betyder, at du fx kan se politi/militær i gaderne, opleve øget kontrol ved indgange til turistattraktioner m.m. Det er vigtigt, at du altid har gyldigt billed-ID på dig. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til den vestlige del af Tunesien og syd for linjen mellem byerne Nefta, Douz, Médenine og Zarzis, fordi sikkerhedssituationen er så alvorlig, at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at rejse dertil. Vi fraråder alle rejser til den sydligste og sydøstligste del af Tunesien i grænseområderne mod Algeriet og Libyen og til nationalparkerne Jebel Chaambi, Jebel Salloum, Jebel Sammamma og Jebel Mghila. I syd gælder dette området syd for El Borma og mod øst inklusiv Ben Guerdane. Militante islamistiske terrorgrupper holder til i disse områder, og der sker sammenstød med lokale sikkerhedsmyndigheder. Terrortruslen er høj, og der er risiko for kidnapning. Hvis du vælger at rejse dertil, bør du på forhånd søge professionel rådgivning.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Do not travel to Tunisia due to COVID-19. Exercise increased caution in Tunisia due to  terrorism. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory. Read the Department of State’s COVID-19 page before you plan any international travel.   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Tunisia due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country. Visit the Embassy's COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 in Tunisia. Do not travel to: Within 30 km of southeastern Tunisia along the border with Libya due to terrorism. Mountainous areas in the country’s west, including the Chaambi Mountain National Park area, due to terrorism. The desert south of Remada due to the military zone. Jendouba south of Ain Drahem and west of P17, El Kef, and Kasserine, next to the Algerian border due to terrorism. Sidi Bou Zid in central Tunisia due to terrorism. Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Tunisia. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, museums, resorts, hotels, festivals, nightclubs, restaurants, religious sites, markets/shopping malls, government facilities and security forces. A country-wide state of emergency, which grants security forces more authority to maintain civil order and enables the government to focus on combating terrorism, is in effect. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in some areas of Tunisia. U.S. government employees must obtain special authorization to travel outside greater Tunis. Read the country information page.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
