Tunis visa

by gvgdhar

Hi, I am Indian passport holder planning to go on Mediterranean cruise. The cruise is calling at Tunis also. I am not able to arrange visa for Tunis. Am I allowed to do the tour without getting off at Tunis port.
Thanks in advance

No-one here can answer that question, I'm afraid. It will depend entirely on your cruise company.

I suggest you telephone or email them to find out whether you will be allowed to stay on the ship. I imagine this would cause no problem, but you do need to check.

Hi,

I am Slovak holder passport and I want to spend 4 days in Tunisia alone. I will arrange my flights and hotel, and then i will take a taxi from the airport.
Do I need to arrange visa before hand???
Or will I get it at the airport?

Thanks
Zee

Although most EU citizens do not need a visa for short-stays in Tunisia, I believe that Slovak and a few other EU citizens do need one if they are not travelling as part of a package holiday.

I have no idea if the visa can be obtained at the airport. I certainly saw no indication of this when I arrived.

I would advise you to contact the Tunisian embassy or consulate nearest to you (Austria?) to check what you must do.

There are contact details for the various embassies/consulates here:

Re: Tunis visa

Hi - you will be denied boarding if you do not have the necessary visas. You cannot board the ship and not get off at one of the ports. It is your responsibility to get the visa and the cruise lines (unfortunately) are of little help in answering questions. There were recently several instances of Indian passport holders (U.S. residents too) who were denied boarding because they did not have appropriate visas for Bermuda (which had just changed their rules). There have also been incidents of Indians being denied boarding for Alaskan cruises because one of the ports of call was in Canada and they didn't have a Canadian visa.

I'm not sure why you say you cannot arrange for a visa. I'd suggest contacting the consulate in Delhi (if you're in India) or the one nearest to you (if you're not in India). If in India, it's easy enough to get a travel agent to arrange for the visa.

I know that Indians residing in the U.S. do not need (cruise) visas for most of the Caribbean but I do not believe that is the case with Tunisia (U.S. resident or not). Best to check with the consulate....

Travel Tips for Tunis

Useful maps

by Willettsworld

In some parts of the Medina, you'll find these useful maps which have been made from tiles. Most of the alleys and passageways have their names in both Arabic and French so it shouldn't be hard to find where you are and where you want to go but if you do get lost then simply ask someone or try and head back to the Zaytuna Mosque and get your bearings there.

Have a glimpse of a tiny little town on the hills - Sidi Bou Said. It preserved all kinds of Tunisian architecture and is protected by the Nature Protection Organization. The most amazing thing about Sidi Bou Said is that all town is in blue and white. This is the place of pilgrimage of painters from all over the world - it inspires them.

by maxovna

Have a look at a very beautiful Christian church San Souis situated near Carthage. It was built in honour of a person whose name was Louis and who came to Tunis with a strong army to baptise this area. He had to stand up to plenty of hardships, and in the end he died of typhoid fever and was canonized.

Bedouin's places

by kris-t

At the beginning of recorded history, Tunisia was inhabited by Berber tribes. Its coast was settled by Phoenicians starting as early as the 10th century BC. In the 6th century BC, Carthage rose to power, but it was conquered by Rome (2nd century BC), and the region became one of the granaries of Rome. It was held by the Vandals (5th century AD) and Byzantines (6th century). In the 7th century it was conquered by Arab Muslims, who founded Al Qayrawan. Successive Muslim dynasties ruled, interrupted by Berber rebellions. The reigns of the Aghlabids (9th century) and of the Zirids (from 972), Berber followers of the Fatimids, were especially prosperous. When the Zirids angered the Fatimids in Cairo (1050), the latter sent in the Banu Hilal to ravage Tunisia. The coasts were held briefly by the Normans of Sicily in the 12th century. In 1159, Tunisia was conquered by the Almohad caliphs of Morocco. They were succeeded by the Berber Hafsids (c.1230–1574), under whom Tunisia prospered. In the last years of the Hafsids, Spain seized many of the coastal cities, but these were recovered for Islam by the Ottoman Empire. Under its Turkish governors, the Beys, Tunisia attained virtual independence. The Hussein dynasty of Beys, established in 1705, lasted until 1957. In the late 16th Century the coast became a pirate stronghold (see: Barbary States). It was made a French protectorate on May 12, 1881.
