New members of the Tunisia forum, introduce yourselves here - 2018

Hi all,

Newbie on the Tunisia forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Tunisia if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi I'm Karyle, Filipino citizen. I'm currently working here in Saudi Arabia as a nurse. My contract will end June and i want to move in Tunisia to meet my friend and work as well. Im still thinking if i will apply visa for Tunisia here but the problem is i am 3 hours away from Rhiyad, the capital of Saudi and i dont know if my boss will let me travel because # 1 problem here is women can't go alone specially i am an expat, also renewal of Resident ID is needed. On the other hand, i'll just finish my contract, go home to Philippines and apply for visa.

Can someone pls advice me if you know anything how to apply visa going to Tunisia, when you are a filipino citizen like me living in Philippines. And approximately how much will i spend for the visa. Thank you!

Hello, my name is Shelli!
I am brand new to Expat and honestly know nothing! I can use all the help I can get.
A long story short...well, I will try. I am an American woman with My destination being Tunis, Tunisia, by the middle of May with my certificate from, TESOL, to teach in English to children. Upon my arrival, i will be joined by my Algerian fiance! We are excited to begin our lives together and want to get married. We have had many challanges thrown in our path to happiness, but are trying to beat not only the odds, but the stereotypical and judgemental views we have faced, and will no doubt continue to face in our relationship. So, please positive, encouraging, honest and helpful words only. Life is hard, short, and is a precious gift. There is just not enough love in the world!
Any help and advice you can give us, we would great welcome.
With the deepest of gratitude, from me an my man!!!

Enjoy the journey !

hope all goes well

Thank you so much!

wishing you all the best luck and good start in tunisia .It's a nice place to live I am sure your man told you about life in tunisia as he would know it perfectly.
all the best of luck  and you are welcome dear


My name is Beulah
I am a British by birth, but returned to the U.K. after 13 years of expat life where I  worked in a private hospital (as a none M.D. qualified and Registered Osteopath and Acupuncturist/ U.S. trained Cranial Osteopath) in a country which was culturally very similar to Tunisia.
Having visited Tunisia ,recently, and due to new on line studies, I wish to move there, and would also value some advice on resuming my osteopathic work to support my Arabic language and cyber security studies.
Obviously I can research all this on line, and speak to some doctor contacts, made during my recent visit.
I am aware that a none Tunisian cannot set up a business which could be done by a Tunisian, but I cannot find a local practising Tunisian near Hammamet...which does not mean there is not an Osteopath there.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you


Ahh nice story. I will be coming with my family (husband of 13 years is Tunisian and we have 4 kids) in mid July. We are returning to just have a simpler, quieter life ;) and just see what happens, a little adventurous!

Just keep an open heart and go with the flow. There will be things that are painful about leaving Home, even if you think you have every reason to leave, and then there will be beautiful things about experiencing a different culture a different land.

Good luck on your journey.

hi I moved to Hammamet in Feb to start my retirement. Some things are fustrating but on the whole love living here. Please ask me any questions you may have and I will try and answer them!! Good luck!!!

Hammamet Nice ;) I guess we have to adjust and go with the flow and not make the mistake of comparing to how things are “back home” hard not to do!

i advice u all to come sousse and monastir  they are  beautiful cities

It is on my destination list

i m living monastir now
i can help you

Yes nice but to much expensive  to rent .homes

Good morning (or afternoon/evening depending on what time of the day you read this),

I'm Jamie, a British national still residing in the United Kingdom in Brighton.

I have the good fortune to be married to a wonderful Tunisian woman (and I do know how fortunate I am).

We met and courted in Tunisia and to cut a long story short, we married in the UK.

We both work in the UK, for the National Health Service (NHS) in management roles.

Our long term plan will be to retire to Tunisia (but keeping a connection to the UK). In my retirement, I would enjoy working/assisting within an English speaking Tunisian university to assist with British/European historical studies (in English) to keep myself occupied.

In the meantime, we are receptive to serious job offers within Tunisia.

I have experience of marketing project management within the Financial and Customer Services sectors, and more recently, I have gained almost 10 years’ clinical administration and management experience within the NHS, working in secondary care settings and also more recently within a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Seeking a more senior role within health care project management or an interesting general management/operational management role in the private sector.

I am pleased to meet you all and look forward to contributing further to this esteemed site.

Best wishes,


Hello everyone :) . My name is Ramona. I'm a romanian citizen. I'm married with tunisian man and i live in Tunis since july 2017.

What is the current cost of a visa for temporary residence and income requirements?

Visa for Where from Where? Tunisia? USA? UK? Turkey?

I'm an American who has been living in Mexico. And wish to move to Tunisia. This website is not easy to navigate or view on my phone.  Pardon my bumbling please.

Americans get 4 months in Tunisia visa free. After that they need to exit and get a new entry stamp or get a residency card. If you aren't married to a Tunisian then you need to be bringing in a certain amount of money from outside the country. I think is 10k a year but I'm not sure. I suggest you email the embassy for more information

I'm new to this forum, a single mother of five. Converted muslima, I'm living here in Tunis and came to know this forum while searching for English job.
