Tunisia Travel Alert

Issued by US Department of State

Jan 28, 2011

The U.S. Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the ongoing political and social unrest in Tunisia. The unrest that had spread to Tunis and all major cities has diminished and public order has returned; however, spontaneous and unpredictable events continue to occur. The Department of State has lifted Authorized Departure status and allowed U.S. Government dependents to return to Tunisia. Demonstrations have degenerated on several occasions into violent clashes between police and protesters, resulting in deaths, injuries, and extensive property damage. While demonstrations have not been directed toward Westerners, U.S. citizens are urged to remain alert to local security developments and to be vigilant regarding their personal security. The U.S. Department of State strongly urges U.S. citizens to avoid all demonstrations, as even peaceful ones can quickly become unruly and a foreigner could become a target of harassment or worse. The U.S. Department of State advises U.S. citizens currently in Tunisia to defer non-essential movement and to exercise caution. This Travel Alert replaces the Travel Warning for Tunisia dated January 16, 2011, and expires on February 28, 2011.

The Tunisian government has imposed a 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. curfew for the greater Tunis metropolitan area until further notice. The U.S. Department of State urges adherence to the curfew. Government security forces, including the police, Army and National Guard, are visibly present throughout Tunisia. Travelers should heed directions given by uniformed security officials, and are encouraged to always carry a copy of their passport as proof of nationality and identity. Security personnel, including plainclothes officials, may at times place foreign visitors under surveillance. It is against Tunisian law to photograph government offices and other sensitive facilities. Suspicious incidents or problems should be reported immediately to Tunisian authorities and to the U.S. Embassy.

The Embassy is located in the Les Berges du Lac suburb of Tunis. The Embassy telephone number is 216 71 107 000 and the Embassy fax number is 216 71 963 263. The Consular section can also be contacted by email at

U.S. citizens in Tunisia are encouraged to enroll in the Smart Travelers Enrollment Program (STEP) at the following website: https://travelregistration.state.gov. U.S. citizens without internet access may enroll directly at the U.S. Embassy. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the Embassy to contact them in case of emergency.

Updated information on travel and security in Tunisia may be obtained from the Department of State by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or, for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. For further information, please consult the Country Specific Information for Tunisia, as well as the Worldwide Caution, which can be found at www.travel.state.gov.
