Can somebody tell me if I'll be ok travelling to Tunis for the weekend from the Uk.
I want suggestions as to whether it will create problems due to the Coronavirus and what is actually happening at the moment. My worry is coming back, I want to get bk.

Tunisia reported its first case last week of the covid19 Coronavirus. A Tunisian national travelling back from Italy via ferry was placed in quarantine..
Flying into Tunis you will be met by health officials wearing protective masks taking passenger temps, you will also have to complete a health declaration along side the normal disembarkment landing card.
Just an update too that a suicide explosion happened on Friday near to the US embassy in Tunis, the FCO have updated its site stating to remain vigilant especially in and around government buildings including the British embassy.
Travelling back into the UK no additional measures in place as of Saturday..

Even if you manage to get a schedule flight you will be forced to self isolate for 14 days on arrival by the authorities.. This appears to be the case with numerous other countries too Best just keep checking updated information on the FCO web site as the situation with the COVID-19 virus is changing daily.
