Libya Passport

Libya Visa

An application for a new Libyan passport will require completion of an application and payment of fees. For further details and other travel related information, contact the consular section of the Libyan embassy or the Libyan consulate nearest to you.

Required supporting documents might include and are not limited to any of the following:

Entry Requirements : For US citizens only.

Passports and visas are required. On December 11, 1981, U.S. passports ceased to be valid for travel to, in, or through Libya and may not be used for that purpose without a special validation. See paragraphs on Passport Validation and U.S. Treasury Economic Sanctions. Visa application and inquiries must be made through a Libyan Embassy in a third country. Under certain circumstances such as a family visit or business meeting, a person may apply for a visa at the Libyan Mission to the United Nations in New York. The land border with Egypt is subject to periodic closures even to travelers having valid Libyan visas. Short-term closures of other land borders occur with little notice.

In an effort to prevent international child abduction, many governments have initiated procedures at entry/exit points. These often include requiring documentary evidence of relationship and permission for the child's travel from the parent(s) or legal guardian not present. Having such documentation on hand, even if not required, may facilitate entry/departure.

Restricted entry :

  1. Holders of Israeli passports, or holders of passports containing a valid or expired visa for Israel will be refused entry or transit.
  2. Children of nationals of Arab League countries will be refused entry if they are travelling alone, unless they are met at the airport by their husband/father or unless they are holding a No Objection Certificate, issued by the Libyan Immigration Department, and are met at the airport by the resident relative who made the application.

Passport Requirement for Libya :

Passport valid for a minimum of six months required by all except Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and United Arab Emirates holding valid ID cards.
