To avail of the liberty available from June 15th, the entrants must show a prior and confirmed hotel reservation with a return ticket. Meanwhile, Iraq's foreign ministry welcomed the move and stated that it was the outcome of an Iraqi-Tunisian committee meeting led by Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein and his Tunisian counterpart Nabil Ammar.

The decision was made “within the framework of strengthening bilateral relations between Iraq and Tunisia and encouraging tourism and commercial exchange between the two countries.
