London, 8 July 2021:
Tunis Air confirmed that the Libyan authorities have implemented the decision announced two days ago that travellers into Libya must now have a negative PCR test no more than 48-hours old.
The decision by Libya comes as Tunisia reports record numbers of Coronavirus cases caused by the spread of the Delta/Indian variant.
The decision would not have been an easy one as Libya and Tunisia now see themselves as interdependent socially, culturally and economically. Any obstruction to the free-flow of goods and passengers will adversely affect both countries – at a time when they are both struggling to – and making huge efforts – to come out of an economic slump.
