According to the US Department of State, unrest in Tunisia has diminished in general terms since early 2011, but work stoppages and demonstrations still occur and a state of emergency remains in force.

Conditions for overland travel in the interior of the country have improved.

Travelers should be aware of international humanitarian operations underway in southern Tunisia, particularly at the Ras Jedir border crossing, where more over 300,000 persons have crossed to escape the unrest in Libya. While the vast majority of Libyans have been repatriated, nearly 6,500 refugees are in camps near the border pending resettlement or repatriation.
