LOL well the easy way seems to be me the best way and fun aswell....I'm only most off the times lost or can find only the difficult way! LOL

Most people I hear with dogs or cats, mostly they come by car and take aswell some things with them. But than you will have to take the car back to Sweden and I can understand that that is not something you will like to do and will be expensive aswell.

I've heard aswell from someone that they brought the car to Tunis Douane and left it there, you don't get money, but the car was taken out of the pasport. But I really did hear it once.
I also don't know what happends if your car is totall loss here, if you can get the stamp out of your passport.
But than you will have to accept the loss off the money.

LOL your dog is more kilo's than I am! LOL

Whats Tunis Douane?Dont get this Douane-thing...cant get translated.Dont mind leaving the car..but do you mean that they left the car there as soon as they arrived or they did go there and leave it after a year?

Yeah they are quite big...Im 160 cm and 65 kg...and if the 86 kg male sees a cat before me-he can pull me over in seconds...well I dont mind enjoying the neighbours as long as I dont get hurt LOL;):D

Even if I would fix flight cages to the dogs...theres some trouble around checking in...no ones can carry a cage like that.Have seen one with a labrador who borrowed something in the airport to put the cage on to make it roll...but my dogs weigh so much more.:confused:...

Thanks Essem, indeed it's customs!
Yes I mean that I know 1 person who left it there after a year, but than you don't get money or anything.

Hello,

So I am a qualified hairdresser and I am moving over to Tunisia in January 2013 with mine and my husbands baby which will be born in September :) Hamdoulah!
I was wondering about starting a hair business there with my husbands help for the language and that but like a mobile hairdresser?
I can take a few bits over with me from the UK but what do you think about it as in a business as I know they love hairstyles from Europe!
I did my husbands mothers hair and she loved it!

Thanks so much :D

Hello everyone.
I'm opening this thread for a mate that asked me to find informations about it.

So this is the problem:

He is currently managing a small company with few employers, they make custom shirts.
They pick sizes of persons and realize the shirts.

They have a lot of clients.

They import the bolts of cotton and realize everything in italy.

Their entire production is done for local italian market and for exportation.

The main problem are the employers, they costs to much in italy and he would like to transfer the company in Tunisia, take tunisian employers, import cotton in tunisia, export the finished product.

What would cost opening this kind of company in tunisia?
And what would be the cost of paying 2 or 3 expert tailorers monthly? What about the costs for renting a building? And what about taxation?
Do you think it would be a good idea to move the company?

Thanks in advance

Does he have any connection to your luxury car business you posted about a while back?

As I've written, it is not for me. It is for a friend.

For the cars issue, I have found a publication from the united states department of commerce where are written all the tradebarriers for cars from all over the world. If someone need it, I can link it.

Btw, why that question?

Hi MadeinItaly

A couple of my Italian neighbours have factories here that make and export clothes.

If you'd like to send me a contact email/details, I'll pass it on for you and ask around.

This is the contact: [email protected]

I've found industries adresses and references in the site of tunisian chamber of industry, but they are big industries. The reality of my friend is a small reality, with few employers.

Btw, thank you in advance.

I have to hide my ghd's otherwise I won't see it again! Think it's a very good idea though, you can never have too many hairdressers, and once they know you are from the UK you won't have a problem

HI Ericahaitem hope that you are well! I think that I would firstly show what I have made by making a portfolio, I would create a site displaying what I can do and also print out some flyers with the name that you will use,contact details and so on. You could then also get in contact with the webmaster here and ask him to advertise your business and also create a page on facebook ,the more places that you advertise the better it will be for you. Most people that I know in Tunisia open a small place in a garage just to begin with but saying that you could always start in your home if you have a spare room. I always go to the tailors in Tunisia as there prices are great . You just have to find somewhere not to close to where you are and get some quotes on the prices that they charge so that you can compete. I wish you all the luck in the world.:)

Good luck with your business Erica.

There are several successful expat businesses here now.

Let me know when and where, I'll come and do some pix and we can showcase it on here and on tunisia.com facebook.

Ads will cost but they're not expensive.

And, of course, you'll be offering the approproiate discounts for tunisia.com members! ;):p
