Yes!…Tourist visas are back in Libya as of the end of April 2012! Some restrictions do apply though…These new Libya tourist visas will be issued only to those people looking to travel along the north coast of Libya. At this point in time, the Sahara Desert will be off limits to Libya tourists and there may still be a few nationalities for whom we cannot obtain visas.

We do also continue to have a service provider that we have been using that has been able to obtain business visas for those coming to do business in Libya. We realize that the pricing is rather HIGH for business visas, but unfortunately that is the way it is. The price that we have to offer for the 6 month multiple entry visa is US$750 per person…this covers the cost of finding a business to host you to write the visa letter of invitation, which is then taken to the immigration office to obtain an electronic visa number, and is then faxed to the Libyan Embassy of your choice closest to you. You should also realize that there is then the additional cost of having the visa placed in your passport at the Embassy.
