The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice to warn visitors that, officially, hotel reservations are needed to enter Tunisia.
It says that while in the majority of cases an explanation of alternative accommodation will be accepted, this isn’t always the case.
“A small number of visitors have been refused entry to Tunisia, or delayed, for not being able to provide sufficient evidence of a hotel reservation,” it said.
The Foreign Office said that visitors who are refused entry should contact the British consular team on +216 71 108 700.
Tunisia relaxed its COVID-related entry restrictions last week, ending the mandatory five-day isolation period for unvaccinated arrivals.
However, adults who haven’t been vaccinated must show a negative COVID test.
A PCR test must be taken within 48 hours of travel, or they can take a lateral flow test within 24 hours of travelling to Tunisia.
Under 18s are free from entry restrictions.
