You need to arrive in Tunisia with evidence of a booking for this second COVID-19 PCR test (to be taken from day 5 of your isolation period). You can organise this online (http://rdvtestcovid.tn/). You are advised to confirm your appointment directly with the clinic.
You are exempt from the requirement to self-isolate if you can present evidence that you have tested positive for coronavirus at least six weeks before your departure date, or received all doses of your coronavirus vaccination. This evidence should be from the relevant health authorities or contain a QR code, (see ‘Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status’ https://bit.ly/3ir0wFu).
