9. Travel

Tunisia is a tourist country. Accordingly there are a lot of competing economic companies that serve the main International airports of the country. 

Since Conference will take place beyond  the hot tourist season, you will find the very attractive propositions, but we strongly advice  to reserve the tickets in advance to achieve the best result. 

The most convenient is to arrive to the tourist Monastir Habib Bourguiba International Airport that is about of 30km from the Conference Hotel, and take a taxi. More economic but much less convenient is to take a small tramway or collective taxi, circulated along the airport road to Sousse.  For such advanture you should speak Arabic or French and be familiar with Maghreb style of life. 

Another option is the tourist Enfidha – Hammamet International Airport  (35km) and  take a taxi. 

The prize for taxi should be around 20 Euro, but the exact value can depend of your art of negotiation. The prize is not-disputable at presence of the taxi-counter (obligatory, in principle). Otherwise, before taking a seat be sure that you well agreed with  the driver. You can write the value at the paper. 

It is less common to arrive to principal Tunis–Carthage International Airport (150km) since you will need a taxi to the Central Railway station of Tunis, then  trainCNCFT to  Sousse (1h30), and again taxi to the Conference Hotel.

Important: Please consult the nearest Tunisian Consulate concerning the Visa formalities and contact Organization Committee  for the invitation letter if required. 
                Majority of EU countries don't need the Visa.
