Entry visa
Entry to Tunisia may require a visa for nationals of some countries. Visa requirements may also depend on the type of passport (diplomatic, special and regular). All visitors need a passport valid for at least 6 months with adequate unused pages allowing for any necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. Should you require a visa, you are advised to apply for it at the Tunisian embassy, or appropriate consulate representation, in your home country or your country of residence.

For participants from countries where there is no Tunisian diplomatic representation, OACA and ACI Africa can intervene to get the visa on arrival at Tunis Carthage airport. In such case, provide 30 Dinars visa fees.

For more information on visa requirements, please see pages 14–15 of the conference brochure or email nkarbal@aci-africa.aero.


An exit of the territory tax is applied to non-resident foreigners in Tunisia. This 30DT tax is perceived as a stamp to buy before the departure from Tunisian airports.
