visits to Tunisia are trouble-free. The main types of incident for which British nationals required consular assistance in
Tunisia in 2008 were for hospitalisations; deaths, (mostly by natural causes); and replacing lost and stolen passports.
You are advised to watch out for petty criminals such as pickpockets and bag snatchers, particularly in crowded market places.
The UK government recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling
to Tunisia. There
is no provision for free medical attention for non-Tunisians. All doctors' fees, medication and hospitalisation
in private (as opposed to state run) clinics have to be paid for on the spot. These costs can be very high.
