Update on arrivals into Monastir (Tunisia)

A quick update on current experience with Tunisia.

We arrived a few days ago in Monastir.

We tied up at the fuel dock, and had the police and capitianaire drop by in about 15 minutes with no radio call or request. We were pretty tired from the passage and they let us unwind before moving us to a temp moorage.

Everyone on board had two vaccinations. I understand if you do not have the two it is on-boat quarantine for 10+ days, though we never had a confirmation on this.

Once having a successful PCR test you can leave the boat. The capitianaire arranged this for us. We had the tests in about 2 hours, with results back in a further 4 - so really quickly. We were provided multiple copies of the PCR tests that we needed for immigration. Tests were 60 EU each. Not sure if we could have negotiated this but we were so tired we did not care.

In Monastir the police, immigration, customs, etc are all with a few feet of each other and they are totally set up for incoming yachts. The capitainaire helped coordinate everything including required photo copies and all the details that otherwise might have been a pain.

A full team came on board to inspect the boat and sign off the equipment list. They made sure we had dinghy motor, TVs, microwave, spares, etc all listed. The radio equipment was listed on my radio license but they did not seem interested in that. Drones (which we don't have) were a specific interest.

No backsheesh or issues. Fees 5 dinar, so about 2 EU. All cleared through same day.

Nothing but good things to say about how everything was handled.

Friendly and helpful. A good experience.

Re: Update on arrivals into Monastir (Tunisia)

And a P.S.


There is a sunken about 45' fishing boat in the entrance at the end of the fuel dock - partly above the water still Oct 2021. Lots of room to get around it, and still room at the fuel dock past the end of it.



An extremely worrying sight when arriving in a storm at night to a new harbour and with poor visibility.
