Miss Tunisie is a national Beauty pageant in Tunisia.


Pascaline Agnes became the first woman from Tunisia to participate in Miss World 1956

Miss Tunisie was held for first time in 1956. The pageant became the national franchise of Miss World in 1956–present, Miss Universe in 1960 - 1971, and Miss International in 1960–present. In 1996, President of Association TEJ - Aida Antar revived the defunct Miss Tunisie contest and is now the official trademark owner.

In 2013, Association TEJ declared to return at Miss World pageant for the first time since 1978. The pageant was held in Jakarta, Indonesia where for the first time the pageant did not allow the bikini session for only that year.[1]
