Hi Laura, I am currently in Tunis, since Monday night, feels safe, there is armed military and police walking around.. I'm not staying in resorts, just travelling around the country, heading to Hammamet and Sousse next, I'll report back. :)

The thread on "security " i suggested before got a bit bogged down and deviated from the original question -) Some posts were removed.

This was my reply on that thread.

Security has been "beefed up" in the resorts.

Armed guards will be patrolling the beaches.

Security/police/military will be very visible in the tourist areas/main thoroughfares and around hotels.

Thats not likely a situation that will endear to many folk.

But thats the position right now.

PS

I dont know this from being there recently

I regularly follow Tunisian news websites.

The return of travellers on package deals for the first time since Summer 2015 from the UK has made headlines in North Africa and elsewhere.

This BBC article from Frank Gardner explains some reasons why the UK has lifted the travel restriction to Tunisia

A few comments and mention of this forum in this article on the safety aspects of the resorts at present.

dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5504771/Brit-to…

Not a newspaper i read in general,but the travel section is ok-ish

Some may find the article interesting and re assuring.

Other may have a different view(concerns) on seeing such visible security.
