Key statement: Disclosed is a process for producing a thermoplastic elastomer composition having a matrix phase comprising a polyamide and an ethylene/ vinyl alcohol copolymer and a disperse phase comprising a rubber composition, by which gelation by a reaction between a polyamide and an ethylene/vinyl alcohol copolymer can be inhibited and the dispersion of the rubber composition can be good.
