Tunisia starts to welcome back UK visitors
The Tunisian National Tourist Office can confirm that following the 'Jasmine Revolution' the country is welcoming back tourists as usual. The curfews have been lifted and since Tuesday 25th January the tour operators Tunisia First and Just Sunshine have been operating a normal programme for their visitors. While the major tour operators Thomas Cook and TUI will restart their flights and programmes on the 2nd March and 13th March respectively.
"With free elections in sight and a more open and liberal government in the making Tunisians are now optimistic about the future. The UK market is incredibly important for Tunisia and I hope that British visitors will support us, as we get back on our feet, by returning to our resorts to enjoy their holidays," says Anissa Ramoundi, the UK & Ireland Director for The Tunisian National Tourist Office. "The tourist resorts were never at the heart of the protests, and Tunisians in these areas are looking forward to getting back to work and making sure our visitors have a wonderful time."
