Popular duty-free bunkering destination currently closed to all yachts.
As part of a national plan to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, all air, land and sea borders in Tunisia are currently closed.
At the time of writing there are just 27 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Tunisia and all of the cases are in a specialist isolation hospital. The country has taken quick action to protect residents and hopefully halt the virus before it has chance to spread to the general population.
The three major superyacht marinas are closed to all overseas visitors and will remain so for as long as necessary. Early predictions suggest a closure period of one month, but this is subject to change.
Social gatherings and markets have been banned and working hours for state employed workers have been reduced. It is hoped that this quick action will be effective in stopping the spread of the disease, and in turn Tunisia will become one of the first virus free countries.
Kim Williams, co-owner of Yacht Services Tunisia said, “We will continue to monitor the situation and take advice from the relevant authorities. Our thoughts are with our colleagues and customers and we hope that you and your families remain safe and well. We will keep you updated with any changes and will remain available to answer any enquiries via the usual channels. “
