A number of Ambassadors as well as key partners of the Integrated Border Management programme attended also the event.

The "Smart Traveller" application, developed under the supervision of a working group of the General Directorate of Customs, in coordination with the ICMPD Bureau in Tunis, contains a large amount of information and practical recommendations involving the procedures and customs regulations that affect travellers or that they must follow, including for Tunisians from abroad, when they enter and stay in Tunisia, and whenever they leave the country.
