Exercise increased caution in Tunisia due to terrorism. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.   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 RN15, 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 Safety and Security section on the country information page.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Der er undtagelsestilstand i Tunesien pga. risiko for terror. Det betyder, at du fx kan se politi/militær i gaderne, opleve øget kontrol ved indgange til turistattraktioner osv. Det er vigtigt, at du altid har gyldigt billed-ID på dig. Når du rejser til Tunesien, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed. De fleste danskere har dog ingen problemer under besøg i landet. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til den vestlige del af Tunesien og syd for linjen mellem byerne Nefta, Douz, Médenine og Zarzis. 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 islamiske terrorgrupper holder til i områderne. Der sker sammenstød med lokale sikkerhedsmyndigheder. Terrortruslen er høj, og der er risiko for kidnapning. Hvis du vælger at rejse, bør du på forhånd søge professionel rådgivning.
