New US visa for Tunisia’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia

WILTON VISE, Tunis – Tunisian Ambassador to Saudi Arabias Visesa al-Azzawi has applied for a US visa, the official said on Saturday.

He will be in the country for a visit from Tuesday and will be visiting Tunisia’s embassy in Riyadh to present a new visa to Tunisian citizens.

Tunisia has already been accepting Tunisian nationals for several months, as well as foreigners from countries including India, Turkey and South Africa, but the issue of issuing visas to Tunisians has been a source of controversy for some time.

Talks have been held between the United States and Tunisian government and Tunisians have said they would be willing to submit their applications to be granted a visa.
