Libyan Latest

Hi all.

A few pieces of good information on Libya here. However, I was just seeking some more, up-to-date info on the current situation in Libya. I have the possibility of a position in Tripoli, at the airport, and wonder what the security situation currently is. I see the FCO is still recommending against all but necessary travel.

Thank you in advance!

Airport is great when it comes to security. At night, you got nothing to do anyway. So, it's better you stay home for the time being.. :)

Yes...Libya does have some rental car companies...I know Budget and Avis both operate here, but there are also some other local rental car companies.

I just made another post about travel in Eastern Libya, if you want to check that out. Safety-wise we felt fine while traveling out east. There were some routine check-points along the way. There are still some "skirmishes" that pop up here and there in various cities, but often the news seems to portray them to be larger than they are. On the whole, life is moving forward here.

Libya has its own traditional food (couscous, rice or noodles with sauce, etc.), but if you are eating out, there are a lot of Turkish and Lebanese restaurants.

There are 2 cell phone companies in Libya...Libyana and Madar. Both had not been issuing new SIM cards for a while, but I think that has changed, at least for Madar.

Hope this helps!
