How to Apply for a Tunisia Visa?

Currently, the only way you can apply for a Tunisian visa is through a Tunisian consulate or embassy. The application process for a Tunisian visa is as follows:

  1. Find the Tunisian diplomatic mission (consulate or embassy) in your country. If there is not one in your country, you must:
    Contact nearest one such as in a neighboring country
    Apply directly to the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Nationale in Tunis
  2. Visit the Tunisian embassy/consulate’s website to find more information
  3. Contact them to inquire about making an appointment as well as the Tunisia visa requirements. Some diplomatic missions may allow you to make an online appointment.
  4. Submit the required documents along with the application
  5. Wait for the Tunisia visa to be processed

How Long Does it Take to Get a Tunisia Visa?

The processing time for a Tunisian visa depends from country to country, as well as from different consulates and embassies. You can expect to wait anywhere from 5 business days to over 20 business days to obtain a Tunisian visa.

If you have any incorrect or missing documents, the Tunisia visa processing time will increase. If the embassy/consulate has to receive authorization their home office in Tunisia, the processing time, again, will be longer.

As such, make sure you apply for a Tunisia visa about a month before you intend to travel and inquire about the processing time at the time of application submission.

Tunisia Visa Fees

There is not a standard set of fees for a Tunisia visa. The visa changes from country to country as does the method of payment. Some embassies may request a bank transfer only, while others also accept cash.

To learn the adequate Tunisia visa fee for your country of residence you must contact the consulate or embassy in which you are applying.
