As of 15 January 16:00, the Foreign Office has updated its travel advice to state “In light of recent developments, we advise against all but essential travel to Tunisia. We advise British nationals to leave Tunisia unless they have a pressing need to remain.”

Since Friday 14 January, many tour operators have repatriated many of their customers who were in Tunisia.

We are now aware that the majority of package holidaymakers are now home. Those tourists who are currently in the country should continue to remain vigilant, and follow advice from their tour operator and the Foreign Office.

Note: "All but essential travel" means that customers of ABTA members who have booked package holidays to Tunisia but have not yet travelled will be entitled to receive suitable alternative arrangements, rebook for a later date, or where these aren’t available, a full refund. These arrangements apply to immediate departures only, and for the period the advice is in force, customers with future departure dates should discuss arrangements with their tour operators.

If customers have booked flight only they should contact their airline for advice.
