Tunisia has recently declared series of measures to soften the negative impact on tourism industry. This measure will limit the destructive effect of restrictions imposed to control virus spread on the crucial sector.


Tourism Minister Habib Ammar emphasizes the ill effects of restrictions on the sector.


“Regarding the income of tourism, it has decreased by 62% or 61.7% for those who like precision. The number of touristic nights has decreased by 80.5%”, Ammar told a news conference.


The, the Minister outlined the actions in the pipeline that would boost up the tourism sector of the nations in North Africa in spite of the pandemic.
“We will allow for the tourists to come and camp in the desert, while respecting the sanitary protocol for tourists and while remaining in organized trips”, he added.


Tourism is tremendously important to Tunisia’s economy. The sector accounts for about 8 percent of the national output of the country. It is the second largest employer in Tunisia with about 400,000 people associated in the industry.


In June 2020, Tunisia reopened its air, land and sea borders as daily numbers of confirmed covid-19 cases started getting down.
