Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak – updated situation in Tunisia (7 April 2020, 17:20)

There are no restrictions on movement of goods in Tunisia; however, importers are facing difficulties importing goods, not because of internal regulations but rather due to the situation worldwide.

Exporting medical supplies that are necessary for treatment of the virus, such as masks and oxygen machines require special authorisation.

Work at the borders is maintained with staff reduction to ensure social distancing whilst on duty. Staff are split into 2 shifts that alternate every week.

Borders with Libya are already closed due to the political situation, therefore there is not very much transit movement in general, not because of the coronavirus, but because of the political situation in the region.

Borders with Algeria are closed both way.
