Tourist visa

I´m planning to travel to Lybia for vacation on Dec. 2009. When we started to plan the trip the contact I had in Lybia said that the visa could be obtained at the airport, provided that we have an invitation and do some other diligencies like to passport translations, etc.

Now I got the information from European agency that the regulations has changed and you have to obtain a visa before entering Lybia. I contacted the agency in Lybia and the say today they went back to the simplified visa at the airport, but the European agency says that this is not true!

Who do I belive??? I can not risk going to Lybia and not been able to enter the country. There is no Lybia consulate or embassy in my country and I won´t be able to obtain a visa prior to go to Lybia.

Please help me clarify this information.

Thank you!

Hello Kokacha,

Latest info I have that visa can be obtained upon arrival!!! However, can't really guarantee that.

Best thing to do, is getting in touch with nearest Libyan consulate (in a country near yours).

Or ask your contact in Libya to get sold information from an official officer about visa and specially for your nationality. Because, it varies from one nationality to another!!

I agree with you on not risking heading to Libya without being 100% sure about visa..

All the best

P.S Get in touch with a respectful Libya travel agency about visa thing or ask your contact to do that for you. Those guys know alot about that
