Tunisia announces Visa Exemption for Chinese Tourists

Officially from Thursday, the Chinese tourists will benefit from an exemption of entry visa to visit Tunisia, announced the Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“From today, the tourists of Chinese nationality will not need a visa to enter Tunisian territory, in the conditions of having a round-trip flight ticket and a valid hotel reservation voucher within 90 days,” confirmed to Xinhua, Chafik Hajji, general director of consular affairs in the Ministry.

“This is good news for Tunisian tourism,” said the head of division and general coordinator of the Tunisian National Tourist (ONTT), Nabil Hedhiri.

According to ONTT, from January to December 2016, compared with the same period in 2015, Tunisian tourism growth in the Chinese market reached 93.6 percent, or 7,396 tourists.

After five years of the most difficult Tunisian tourism period, Tunisia did not gradually take a breath until 2016 when more than 5.7 million tourists landed in Tunisia compared to 5.3 million in 2015, according to figures recently unveiled to the media by ONTT.
