The worst airport ever, very rude custom agents when I was departing and after the passport control o was stopped by a very rude custom agent who spoke to me in French which I don’t Speak and he started searching my carry on bags even my underwear which I found very disrespecting when I told him to stop he was pointing for money if I had money in my bags I showed him my purse and he still went through it looking at my credit cards and searching my purse.
Another bad thing they don’t accept Tunisian dinars to pay at duty free not even to buy a water you have to pay in Euro and pay a very high price , the exchange banks don’t accept to exchange the currency to any other currency so basically they want you to buy their currency and when you leave you are stuck with their currency if they think I would come back again they are wrong I would rather spend my money somewhere else and not this horrible country
