Passports and Visas:
Passports and visas are required for all U.S. citizens traveling to Libya.
The Department of State cannot provide assistance to U.S. citizens seeking Libyan visas.
The Government of Libya does not allow persons with passports bearing an Israeli visa or entry/exit stamps from Israel to enter Libya.
All visa applications are vetted by Libyan authorities and are only issued by the appropriate Libyan Embassy upon receipt of approval by the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Contact the Libyan Embassy in Washington, D.C. for information on visa application procedures.
Visas for U.S. passport holders are not available at the port of entry. Do not use a tourist visa to enter Libya for business purposes, or you risk arrest.
U.S. citizens should apply for Libyan visas in the place they are resident.
Business Visas: Obtain an invitation from or sponsorship by a company operating in Libya. U.S. citizens who apply for Libyan business visas often experience significant delays, regularly waiting several weeks or months for their visas.
Dual Citizens: U.S.-Libyan citizens need valid passports from both countries.
U.S. citizens must enter and exit the United States using their U.S. passport, and Libya requires Libyan citizens to use their Libyan passports when entering and exiting Libya.
Libya’s land borders with Egypt and Tunisia are subject to periodic closures. Short-term closures of other land borders may occur with little notice.
Within three days of arrival in Libya, visitors must register at the police station closest to where they are residing.
Some HIV/AIDS entry restrictions exist for visitors and foreign residents of Libya. Please verify this information with the Libyan Embassy in Washington, D.C. before you travel.
