Citizens of Mauritania who wish to travel to Tunisia can currently do so without a visa. Mauritanian nationals are granted a short-term stay of up to 90 days in Tunisia. For longer stays, it is currently necessary to obtain a visa from a Tunisian diplomatic office in Mauritania.
However, Tunisia is planning on introducing an electronic visa system this year. Once implemented, it is expected that Mauritanian citizens will be able to obtain a Tunisia eVisa to enter the country.
The electronic visa for Tunisia could become an entry requirement for citizens from Mauritania. Mauritanian nationals will simply be required to complete an online visa application with their personal details and passport information. Once an eVisa application is processed, the approved visa for Tunisia is sent directly to the applicant’s email.
Tunisia Visa Application for Mauritanian Citizens
Because of the visa-free arrangements between Tunisia and Mauritania, Mauritanians can enter Tunisia and stay for a period of 90 days. If they wish to extend their stay, they must apply for a visa.
The Tunisia eVisa online application is expected to be straightforward. Applicants will not need to travel to an embassy or consulate to obtain this authorization. The application will be available online, and travelers will be able to enter their information in a few minutes. After submitting the application, the approved eVisa will be sent to an email address provided on the form.
The document travelers receive is a Tunisia Tourist Visa. The eVisa for Mauritanians authorizes travel to Tunisia and allows a traveler to enter the country.
How Mauritians Can Obtain Their Tunisia eVisas
Once it becomes available, submitting an eVisa application for Tunisia from Mauritania is expected to be a simple process. Applicants will simply be required to provide some basic personal and passport information on the form and ensure that all sections are completed fully and accurately.
Obtaining the eVisa for Tunisia can be done in three easy steps:
- Complete the online application with personal and passport details
- Pay the required fee with a debit or credit card
- When approved, the Tunisian visa is delivered via email (a current email address is required).
The recipient of an approved eVisa should print at least one clear copy to carry with them when traveling to Tunisia, to present to border officials upon arrival and gain entry to the country.
The online Tunisian visa process can be completed from anywhere in the world, not just from within Mauritania, using any device that has an internet connection.
What Documents Do I Need to Apply for a Tunisia Visa Application Form?
It is necessary for applicants to provide the following to submit an electronic visa application for Tunisia for Mauritanian citizens:
- Individual data: Name, address, date of birth, passport information, nationality information, and answers to security questions
- A Mauritanian passport, valid for at least 6 months beyond the expected stay in Tunisia. In other words, it must be valid for the entire duration of the visit.
Mauritanian passport holders who meet these requirements are able to get the necessary authorization to travel to Tunisia.
Applicants with dual nationality are able to use either of their passports to complete the online application. However, it is necessary to ensure that they use the same passport to complete the eVisa form as the one they will later use to travel to Tunisia.
More Information about the launch and requirements for the Tunisia eVisa for citizens of Mauritania will be posted on this site once available.
