Exploring Tunisia can be an exciting experience, but it is essential to be aware of the local laws and regulations. Different entry rules may apply when travelling with a temporary passport or emergency travel document, so it is important to check with the foreign representative closest to your destination before leaving. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the traveler being denied entry, detained, deported, or considered inadmissible to enter South Africa in the future. It is highly recommended that all eligible travelers complete a series of COVID-19 vaccines along with any additional doses recommended in Canada before travelling.
Travellers' risk of developing diarrhoea increases when travelling to regions with poor hygiene and sanitation standards, so it is important to take precautions. The Department of the Interior's website provides the most up-to-date requirements for travelling with minors to or from South Africa. It is essential to visit a health professional or travel health clinic, preferably 6 weeks before you travel, for personalized health advice and recommendations. Pregnant women and those planning a pregnancy should visit a health professional before travelling to discuss the possible risks of travelling to this country.
Women travelling alone should also be aware of how safe Tunisia is for them, from what to wear to local customs and etiquette. Travellers who may be at high risk when travelling to regions at risk of tuberculosis should discuss options before and after the trip with a health professional.
