Tunisia imposes new Covid-19 measures for arrivals from abroad


The Tunisian Ministry of Health has announced new measures for arrivals from abroad to prevent the spread of the new variant of Covid-19 Omicron in the country.

All arrivals must present a certificate of completion of the vaccination or a vaccination pass. This decision involves all non-resident passengers over the age of 18 years, said the Ministry in a statement.

Arrivals over six years old must present a negative PCR test result within 48 hours before take-off, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Tunisian Health authorities have also imposed a 10-day confinement in one of the designated centers for Tunisians as well as foreigners residing in Tunisia who have not yet completed their vaccination.

All arrivals must immediately carry out a rapid test to detect Covid-19.

According to the latest figures released by the Ministry on Saturday, 175 new Covid-19 cases were reported, raising the tally in the north African country to 717,163.
