Tunis/Tunisia — All incoming passengers to Tunisia must from Thursday, July 1, present a negative COVID-19 PCR test with a QR code, carried out within 72 hours of the flight, said chair of the quarantine committee at the Health Ministry Mohamed Rabhi.
All travellers, including those vaccinated and those who have been infected, must present a negative PCR test, even they have no symptoms, he told TAP on Wednesday.
«In the majority of cases, symptoms of the coronavirus are not visible in vaccinated or previously infected people when infected with a new variant,» he said, warning of the risks of «silent and asymptomatic infections.»
All Tunisian travellers are required to present a negative PCR test on their return to Tunisia from July 1, even if the period of travel did not exceed two days.
Travellers leaving Tunisia for other countries are subject to the entry and travel conditions of the destination countries in relation to the COVID-19 vaccination documents and the negative PCR test.
These decisions were taken by the national committee to combat the coronavirus at a virtual meeting chaired by PM Hichem Mechichi on Tuesday evening.
