Health Precautions It is recommended that everyone 16 years of age and older should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before travel and present, if necessary, evidence of COVID-19 vaccination at the border. The updated information on all health entry requirements as well as on routine and recommended vaccines for Tunisia are provided on the dedicated pages on TravelHealthPro and CDC websites.
While there are no official requirements for vaccination, the following are strongly recommended: tetanus, diphtheria, rabies, typhoid fever, chickenpox, measles, hepatitis A and B, influenza and poliomyelitis. To guard against traveller's diarrhea, you should avoid the highest risk foods such as those that are undercooked or badly cooked, prepared dishes that are later eaten cold, raw vegetables and fruits you have not peeled yourself. Drinking water must be boiled and filtered or drank from sealed bottles. You should also avoid ice cubes.
Travel Health Advice The French government up-to-date advice on health entry requirements, including routine and recommended vaccines while travelling abroad can be verified at the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs website.

Recommendation The rail network covers most of the country, linking most of the big northern cities (Tunis, Bizerte, Beja) with those on the east coast (Sfax, Gabès). The trains are quite slow, but they are affordable and punctual. You can get various discounted cards such as the youth card, blue card and the museum rail card. Tuninter airlines serves domestic flights, practically linking all the cities with Tunis. Buses serve the most remote places in Tunisia.

There are also taxis that go between towns, called 'rental contract taxis'. These are a group taxis that only leave when they are full, located at rental stations in each town. The cars with blue bands serve nearby places and those with red bands serve longer distances. In some cases, they are more economical and less restricting than trains.
