June 6, 2021

TAP) - The National carrier Tunisair said on Saturday that as of June 9, 2021, all vaccinated passengers with proof of vaccination entering the French territory from Tunisia will have to provide only a certificate of negative PCR test whose result date does not exceed 72 hours or an antigenic test of less than 48 hours.

These passengers will no longer be subject to the condition of presenting a compelling reason, following the latest decisions of the French authorities.

Besides, all vaccinated passengers with proof of vaccination to Tunisia will no longer be subject to the compelling reason requirement.

Non-vaccinated persons will have to present a compelling reason and a certificate of a negative PCR test with a result date not exceeding 72 or an antigenic test less than 48 hours old. They will have to isolate themselves for seven days.

Tunisair reported that the vaccines admitted by France are those recognised by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), namely Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.

Proof of vaccination is only valid if it can be used to prove that a complete vaccination schedule has been completed, i.e:

Two weeks after the 2nd injection for double injection vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca) ;

Four weeks after injection for single injection vaccines (Johnson & Johnson);

Two weeks after injection for people with a history of COVID-19 (only 1 injection required).

The compelling reasons and quarantine measures applied to vaccinated adults extend under the same conditions to accompanying minors, whether or not they are vaccinated.
