Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade statement on Tunisia


The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has opened our Consular Support Line following the incident in Tunisia today.

The Embassy in Madrid and our Honorary Consul, in conjunction with EU Embassies in Tunis, are monitoring the situation in Sousse, Tunisia, and are providing updates. We are aware of Irish citizens in Sousse but we are not aware that any Irish citizens have come to harm. Given the number of Irish holiday makers in Tunisia we have opened a dedicated consular support line as a precautionary measure.

Anyone with concerns about this incident should call the Department on 01 418 0200.

Irish citizens in Sousse are advised to follow the instructions of the police, tour operators, and their hotel staff.
