• ​​​​Tunisian immigration law provides limited options for employers of foreign nationals. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

• For visa nationals, Tunisia typically issues single-entry business visas for business visits of up to 90 days consecutively or 180 days cumulatively.

• Foreign nationals seeking to engage in business-related activities for more than 90 days generally must obtain a work permit, which is typically valid for up to one year with the possibility of renewals. Work permits are limited to certain categories. If a foreign national does not fall into one of the categories, the employer must perform a labor market test and obtain a certificate from the Regional Employment Office confirming there is no qualified Tunisian candidate.

• Some foreign nationals, such as investors or directors, are exempt from obtaining a work permit but still subject to a formal process by applying for non-submission of a work permit. For this process, they must provide corporate documents to support their eligibility for this ''exemption."​​
