Travel guide for Tunisia

According to the constitution, the Tunisian president must be Muslim.
Islamism (which many deem a political ideology) is illegal in Tunisia. No political party can be based on a religious programme.
Missionary activity towards Muslims is not legal, but conversian from Islam is. There are a few hundred converts to Christianity in Tunisia.
Muslim women can only marry a Muslim man.
There is religious freedom for other religions, but among Christians, the government officially only recognize the Roman Catholic Church.
