My ex argue with them few minutes because even with his permition they did not wanted my son out of Tunis....you believe that?????????
I was thinking of something else.......Did your son have a Tunisian passport? By law, since your sn was born in Tunisia, and the father of your son is Tunisian, your son is automatically considered Tunisian. According to law, all Tunisian citizens MUST enter/exit the country using their Tunisian passport. If your son did not have a Tunisian passport, that may have been another reason they were reluctant to allow him to leave the country even though his father had given permission.When we are in other countries, like them or hate them, we fall under that countrys laws and MUST abide by them. Simply stating we didn't know the law is not good enough. It is up to the traveler to make sure they have the proper documentations.
My children are dual nationals and I HAVE to travel with both of their passports. Tunisia will only allow them to enter/exit using their Tunisian passport, and the USA will only allow them to enter/exit using their American passport.
Some women have said they have entered/exited on a non-Tunisian passport for their children, but it is a chance you take. It is an even bigger chance for you since your son was born here. I have seen MANY problems through the years with parents not having the proper travel documents for their kids (Tunisian passport, letter of authorization). And I hate to say it, but the authorities are cracking down, and are getting stricter now since mixed marriages are on the rise.
