The assistant consul at the Consulate of Tunisia in Montreal stated during a 24 September 2003 telephone interview that any Tunisian citizen living in Canada can obtain a copy of his criminal record (Bulletin No. 3) without having to go to Tunisia. He merely has to go to a Tunisian consulate, complete the application, and attach his birth certificate, a photocopy of the first three pages of his passport, or a photocopy of his national identification card, and a photocopy of his consular card (Consulate of Tunisia 24 Sept. 2003). This process carries a fee of CDN$2.60 (ibid.).
