National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Hvis du rejser til Tunesien, bør du være ekstra forsigtig for at minimere risikoen for at blive smittet med coronavirus/COVID-19. Du udviser ekstra forsigtighed ved bl.a. at følge vores rejseråd i en tid med COVID-19. Det er muligt at rejse til Tunesien som turist uden krav om COVID-19-test eller karantæne, hvis du har booket en pakkerejse. Læs mere om de tunesiske myndigheders krav til pakkerejsende under ”Rejserestriktioner”. Før du tager afsted, bør du undersøge med dit rejseselskab, hvilke regler der gælder for netop din pakkerejse. Hvis du rejser til Tunesien som andet end pakkerejsende, skal du ved indrejsen fremvise en negativ COVID-19-test, som er taget tidligst 72 timer inden boarding. Selvom du kan fremvise en gyldig negativ COVID-19-test ved indrejse, skal du stadig i hjemmekarantæne i op til 14 dage Hvis du vælger at rejse til Tunesien, bør du orientere dig om lokale restriktioner forud for rejsen. Den danske ambassade i Algier (som dækker Tunesien) har de seneste oplysninger om lokale restriktioner i Tunesien, herunder karantænereglerne. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger.  Du bør løbende holde dig orienteret om udviklingen i Tunesien via den danske ambassade i Algier (som dækker Tunesien), de lokale myndigheder og nyhedsmedierne.  Du bør også downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der indføres omfattende restriktioner i Tunesien, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve. Du kan læse mere om coronavirus/COVID-19 hos Sundhedsstyrelsen og Statens Serum Institut. Du bør altid følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd til forebyggelse af smittespredning.  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.

Jendouba south of Ain Drahem and west of RN15, El Kef, and Kasserine, next to the Algerian border due to terrorism. Sidi Bou Zid in central Tunisia due to terrorism.

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!
