6 November 2014

Imports from Tunisia are subject to the terms of an Association Agreement with the EU, which provides for elimination of duties or preferential duties to be applied to the majority of Tunisian goods. Prepared or preserved olives are free of any import duties. Fresh tomatoes can also be imported into the EU without payment of import duties provided that the import price is equal to or greater than a fixed entry price.
