Working in Tunisia

The Tunisian economy is the 12th largest in Africa, and is built primarily on its thriving oil & gas, textiles and mining sectors. The country enjoys excellent trade links with Europe and exports many agricultural products, textiles and petroleum.

Working in Tunisia

Tunisia is in something of an economic reinvention, with a shift from a state controlled to a liberal economy. There is significant growth which is driving a boom, and there are strong sectors throughout the economy. The healthcare and education systems lag behind this development, and private arrangements are required. It is essential to have employment before applying for a work permit. There are concerns over security, especially away from tourist areas where crime is higher.
