The curfew was lifted on 4 February 2016. If you choose to travel to, or remain in Tunisia you need to double check that your medical and travel insurance policy provides adequate coverage. Failure to do so could result in future issues with any claims made resulting from your stay in Tunisia.
UK FCO currently advise against all travel to:
- the Chaambi Mountain National Park area
- the Tunisia-Algeria border crossing points at Ghardimaou, Hazoua and Sakiet Sidi Youssef
- the militarized zone south of, but not including, the towns of El Borma and Dhehiba
- within 5km of the Libya border area from north of Dhehiba up to but not including the Ras Ajdir border crossing
FCO advise against all but essential travel to the rest of Tunisia.
Take out comprehensive medical and travel health insurance before travelling to Tunisia, to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad or emergency repatriation and evacuation. Be sure to read the small print of all insurance policies before you purchase. Repatriation and evacuation coverage is essential for travel to Tunisia. This is due to the fact that medical facilities may not be up to the standard of care you are used to. Access may be complicated. In the case of a medical emergency you may require a medical evacuation to another hospital in another country. In 2016 the risks are endless however the right coverage should provide peace-of-mind to travellers and expats.
