Visitor Visas - Tripoli, Libya


I'm a UK citizen and may shortly be moving to Tripoli for a 12 month contract.

My husband would like to come and visit every couple of months, but the issues around visas seems quite complicated.

If he is staying in a hotel, are they able to organise the visa / invite for him? Or is there any simpler route that someone can suggest? I'm trying to ensure that in the case of an unseen event if he needs to get into the country quickly to see me that he can.

Can anyone please advise?

Thanks for your help.

Since you are coming to Libya for a 12 month contract or something then you could send him an invitation to visit you. I don't know what type of visa you are applying for but since he is your husband he can visit you. If you are going to join a company in Libya then the company should do all that for you.

Hope that helped.. all the best

Your husband could apply for a 6 month multiple entry visa. A bit costly but perhaps you can get your company to pay?
