Classified in green since Wednesday, July 1, France is now one of the countries whose nationals can go to Tunisia without specific health measures.
Previously classified in orange, France passed on July 1 on the green list established by the National Observatory of New and Emerging Diseases in Tunisia. In other words, travelers from France will no longer have to present a negative PCR test carried out less than 72 hours before departure, as requested since the borders were opened on June 27. This development comes after the EU officially registered Tunisia in the fifteen countries whose travelers can again travel to Europe.
TOs in the starting blocks
A very positive signal for the pros, who are preparing their return to the destination and thus see their scope of activity grow. "Tunisia will be the first destination outside Schengen where we will have departures this summer, especially since the country comes on Wednesday July 1 to pass France in green with the possibility for the French to go there without any constraint or obligation on the health plan”, thus welcomes Raouf Benslimane, the boss of Thalasso N ° 1 / ÔVoyages. "However, our clubs remain closed until September following a decision by our hotel partners who preferred to wait until the anti-Covid measures were eased," he said. In fact, Tunisia has established a health protocol. Called "Ready and Safe", this label is compulsory for all tourism stakeholders in Tunisia, so that the same standards are required and applied by all. For clubs, the TO will therefore be betting this summer on the Canaries, the Balearics, Greece and its islands with a common health charter, the "Zen and healthy holidays" charter.
