The process of obtaining a visa for Tunisia for Romanian citizens will soon be simplified once the Tunisian government introduces the eVisa for eligible nationals in the coming months. The Tunisia eVisa project was initiated in collaboration with the World Tourism Organization (WTO) in order to further promote tourism and facilitate entry into Tunisia.
Entry Requirements for Romanian Nationals
Romania is among 97 countries that do not currently need a visa if they wish to travel to Tunisia for short stays. Entry to Tunisia is visa-free for Romanian citizens who are traveling for leisure or a family visit. The maximum stay in the country, in this case, is 90 days.
Romanian citizens who wish to work or study in Tunisia or stay for more than 3 months, need to obtain a visa. Currently, they are required to personally visit either the Tunisian Embassy in Bucharest or the consulate in Timisoara to submit a visa application.
However, after the eVisa for Tunisia comes into effect, there will be no further need to contact the embassy or consulate. In addition, Tunisia visa requirements for Romanian citizens will be simplified to include:
- Filling out an online application form
- Paying for the visa processing fee online through a secure payment system
- Receiving the visa approval by email and printing out the visa
Please note that the requirements for a Tunisia visa online for Romanian citizens may change at any time. Therefore, it is advisable to check the Tunisia Visa website frequently for updates.
What Documents Do I Need to Complete a Tunisia Visa Application Form?
To apply for a visa for Tunisia from Romania, visitors need to have the following documents:
- A valid Romanian passport
- An unexpired debit or credit card for paying the visa fee online
- An active email address for all correspondence regarding the status of the visa
The applicant’s passport must be valid until the return date from Tunisia. There is no requirement for longer validity. However, it is important to keep in mind that Tunisia eVisa is directly linked to the passport number.
For this reason, travelers must enter the country with the same passport they used to apply for a visa. If the passport expires in less than the minimum required amount of time, the candidate has to obtain a new one before applying for a visa.
Visa Application for Romanian Citizens
Applying for a visa to Tunisia for Romanian citizens is a simple online process, and it takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Applicants will be asked to provide some personal and passport details including:
- Full name(s)
- Place of birth
- Date of birth
- Contact information
- Passport country
- Passport number
- Date of issue of the passport
- Date of expiry of the passport
It is very important that all the information provided on the application form is correct to the best of the candidate’s knowledge. If this is not the case, the process of obtaining a Tunisia tourist visa may be delayed.
Applicants can pay for the visa processing fee using any major debit or credit card and then submit the application form. Most applications will be processed quickly, and the approved eVisa will be received by email in a matter of days. The validity of a Tunisia eVisa is expected to be between 2 and 4 weeks.
Romanian travelers must present their printed eVisa and passport at the port of entry in Tunisia. Please note that having a visa does not in itself guarantee entry to Tunisia, and the permission to enter the country depends on the discretion of immigration officers at the border.
