Following a series of fatal attacks on locals and foreigners in Tunisia, the Tunisian government had declared a state of emergency on 25 November 2015. The state of emergency was recently extended to 12 February 2018. The decree empowers the authorities to prohibit strikes and gatherings that might provoke disorder, and to temporarily close theatres and bars.
Singaporeans travelling to Tunisia are strongly advised to take all necessary precautions for their personal safety, including monitoring the local news and heeding the instructions of the local authorities. They should remain vigilant and where possible, avoid crowded places, public gatherings, and places known for demonstrations. They should also purchase comprehensive travel insurance and be familiar with the terms and coverage.
Singapore has no diplomatic representation in Tunisia. Singaporeans are strongly encouraged to e-Register with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs so that we can contact you should the need arise. Singaporeans are also advised to stay in touch with your family and friends so that they know you are safe.
