Tunisia requires a “vaccination certificate” to enter restaurants, schools and cultural events

The Tunisian government published the decree on Friday that regulates the “vaccination pass”, which is required in the country, among other things, for entering restaurants, official buildings, schools and universities as well as cultural events.

In addition, the decree stipulates that both state and private workers who do not have an ID card will see their employment suspended until vaccination.

The letter calls on the ministries to organize “intensive vaccination campaigns” for their employees, which must be presented within the next seven days.

This “vaccination certificate” is required by all Tunisian citizens and foreigners who have been in Tunisia for over 18 years. This means that travelers who present a vaccination card abroad also receive the passport.

The document is also required for trips abroad. Tunisia, a country of nearly 12 million people, has recorded around 700,000 infections and 25,000 deaths from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

About four million people, 35 percent of the population, are fully vaccinated against the disease, according to Johns Hopkins University.

At the end of September, the Tunisian government ended the curfew that was imposed to contain the pandemic and allowed vaccinated people to attend public and private meetings.
