Tunisia travel warning

Article content

1 February 2011

The FCO said in a statement: "We advise against all but essential travel to Tunisia. There have been demonstrations, some violent, in multiple locations across the country, including (but by no means limited to) Tunis, Sousse, Sfax, Nabul, Hammamet, Douze, Kasserine, Requeb and Thia. The situation is unpredictable and there is the potential for violence to flare up, raising the risk of getting caught up in demonstrations.

On 12 January a nightly curfew was imposed in the Greater Tunis area between the hours of 20.00 and 05.30. This remains in force until further notice and the Tunisian authorities may impose curfews in other areas. A general strike has been called in Tunis on 14 January and further violence is expected.

British nationals in Tunisia should monitor the news or stay in touch with your tour operator. Respect advice or instructions given by the local security authorities and tour operators. Avoid rallies and demonstrations. If you are in any doubt about the safety of your location stay in your accommodation."

If you would like to holiday in North Africa, we would suggest Morocco or Egypt as great alternatives.
