  16. Laura Marie says:

    The information provided stated: “Travelers who are transiting by Tunisia and continuing their journey don’t need a visa for a 48h stay if they hold confirmed tickets and documents.”

    I hope to visit on a cruise ship. Given the above, I do not need a visa. However, as a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago, and out of an abundance of caution, I would like to receive confirmation of this interpretation of the visa information provided.
