Algeria announces the opening of the land border with Tunisia (video)

On Tuesday, Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune announced the opening of the land border with Tunisia as of July 15, 2022.

This procedure concerns the movement of movement by cars and private persons, after the movement of movement was limited to merchandise only.

President Tebboune announced this decision during Tunisian President Kais Saied's visit to Algeria to celebrate the 60th anniversary of independence.

The land borders between the two countries were closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Corona virus, and the borders remained closed, while specific land crossings were opened on specific dates to evacuate Algerian or Tunisian students and nationals stranded between the two countries, while applying the necessary health measures.

Last May, the Algerian authorities announced the reopening of its borders with Tunisia to facilitate the transportation of goods and improve trade exchanges between the two countries, while the transit of travelers continues to be prevented.

Despite the decline in the outbreak of the Corona virus and the abandonment of travel restrictions by most countries of the world, the land borders between Tunisia and its western neighbor remained closed, for the third consecutive summer, until the issuance of this decision.
