Travel Advice updated for Tunisia

As of Friday 4th February the Foreign Office is no longer advising against all but essential travel to Tunisia.

The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt said:
“Last month’s events in Tunisia were watched around the world.

There is now a new government which is broad-based and has signalled its intention to deliver political reform and a path of reform to what we hope will be free and fair elections. This progress, marked by its commitment to sign important human rights agreements, appears to have public acceptance.

It is still early days. Much depends on how the new Tunisian Government continues to engage with the public, civil society and the international community. But the UK believes that its actions are encouraging.

A tourist industry is vital to Tunisia’s economy and future. It is hoped this change in the advice enables people to see the country in a new light.”
