The Tunisian Ministry of Health announced on Saturday new measures for arrivals from abroad to prevent the spread of the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron, in the country.
All arrivals must present a certificate of completion of the vaccination or a vaccination pass. This decision involves all non-resident passengers over the age of 18, said a ministry statement.
Arrivals over six years old must present a negative PCR test result within 48 hours before take-off.
The Tunisian health authorities have also imposed 10-day confinement in one of the designated centers, for Tunisians as well as foreigners residing in Tunisia who have not yet completed their vaccination.
All arrivals must immediately carry out a rapid test to detect COVID-19.
According to the latest figures released by the ministry on Saturday, 175 new COVID-19 cases were reported, raising the tally in the North African country to 717,163.
