Tunisia News Alert

General Federation of Transport announces nationwide fuel transportation strike May 2-4; fuel shortages possible during the strike

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/1/2019, 12:00 AM until 5/4/2019, 11:59 PM (Africa/Tunis). COUNTRY/REGION Tunisia


The General Federation of Transport has announced a nationwide fuel transportation strike from Thursday, May 2, through Saturday, May 4. The nationwide strike is likely to result in fuel shortages at service stations across the country as deliveries are expected to cease during the industrial action.

Associated demonstrations and transportation disruptions remain possible in Tunis and other Tunisian cities amid a heightened security presence, particularly if the strike proceeds as planned.


Individuals present in Tunisia are advised to monitor the situation, fill up vehicles whenever fuel is available, ensure sufficient fuel reserves before long journeys, and expect longer waiting times at gas stations. Avoid all related protests and demonstrations.
