Tunis is a really cheap place to live if you like alot of terrorist activities going on car and bombs going of in public places are the norm.I lived in Tunis for 7 months but left just too intense.
Tounsi, a Tunisian on Jan 19, 2020:
Okay, salaries section exists, but still, is 904.50 TND (about €290) per month sufficient for you? Look at the top, a single member costs 969.35DT, which makes a difference.

Consider economic renting, electricity, water, food and health, not counting internet, entertainment (which is not really present), loans that you may take from the bank and extras.
Tounsi, a Tunisian on Jan 19, 2020:
Why did you not compare salaries? Salaries in Tunisia are so poor, and the price of living there is increasing but salaries there are not.

I do not forbid you to move to Tunisia, it is your choice and you are very welcome; but please, if you consider working there then you will need to consider the salary.
