Self introduction

All foreign tourists who want to travel to Tunisia must complete the Tunisia Health Declaration Form. This document is required to at least help prevent the prevalence of Middle East respiratory syndrome or MRS, a deadly disease that sweeps through much of the Middle East and Europe. This form should be electronically signed and printed out. It can also be handed to a health authority upon arrival in Tunisia. Before embarking on a visit to this North African country, it's advisable to review your health declaration.

This form is basically a two-page form that asks for basic information about your health history. Although it doesn't ask for the same information that the health application for citizens of the European Union or American tourists, it provides enough information to help you plan your trip. Specifically, it asks for information regarding your nationality (Tunisia is multicultural, so all Tunisian nationals are required to fill out the form), date of birth, passport type, country of citizenship, intended destination, and contact numbers for emergency health care. A licensed travel doctor will examine your form. Your doctor will examine the form and issue a medical certificate.

The Tunisian government has set up several hospitals in different locations throughout the country, but all foreign patients seeking treatment must first go through the Ministries of Health and have their health declaration reviewed before they can be admitted. The review process is not mandatory, but most visitors to Tunisia are required to go through this process before being admitted. If a patient's health information is not current or incomplete, some hospitals may refuse to admit them. The Tunisia Health Declaration provides a brief description of the process as well as what the patient must do. You may also contact the Ministries of Health directly to find out what procedure is required for you when in Tunisia.

Tourists who wish to travel to Tunisia must have a passport. The process is easy. There are other items that are not necessary, such as your contact information and a copy or your travel insurance policy. All travellers must present an identity card (called an i-card) at check-in. The card is valid for up 3 days after it is issued. There are a few consignment shops in Tunisia where you can pick up your visa and passport upon arrival.

The Tunisia Health Declaration provides information about the security and welfare situation in Tunisia. It does not detail the treatment that is offered by the private or government health care system. It does not detail the qualifications of doctors or nurses, or what standards apply to them, nor does it specify the laws that apply to the practice of medicine. As you would expect, if you have any health issues that might require you to receive treatment by an independent practitioner, you will need to visit the relevant Ministry of Health to secure a referral.

You may wish to consider contacting a private medical consultant to assist you with obtaining a Tunisia Health Declaration. A consultant will not only be able interpret the technical language of the declaration, but may also be able help you with your individual health care needs. Many citizens in Tunisia have benefited from this service. If your health requires special attention, consider consulting an independent medical consultant for further information and assistance.
