What is the current safety situation in the country?

In connection with the situation in the Middle East and the events taking place after the attack in Djerba it is necessary to be extra careful, especially when in public areas that are popular with tourists. Even though Tunisia has been one of the safe destinations in the long run, it is important to bear in mind the risk of potential attacks of Islamic militants against foreign visitors. Just like in other countries, there are common forms of crime in Tunisia. We therefore would like to remind you to take standard preventive measures. Especially in the areas with a low number of foreigners it is recommended to avoid any demonstrations, acts or clothing that could be of provoking nature in such a conservative and Islamic environment.
