Invitation letter

No vaccinations are required by law to enter Tunisia.


Currency & Money Matters


The Tunisian Dinar is Tunisia's official unit of currency. The confusing thing about Tunisian Dinar is that 1 dinar is equivalent to 1000 millimes (not the normal 100). So you may think you owe 5,400 dinar for a cab ride, when in fact it's only 5 dinar 400 millimes.


The Tunisian Dinar is not available outside the country as it's not an internationally traded currency. You can easily change US Dollars, British Pounds and Euros at most major banks which line the main streets.
