Travel Warning

WARNING: The domestic situation in Libya remains unstable subsequent to the formal announcement of liberation by the Libyan National Transitional Council on 23 October 2011. Travel within the nations borders remains dangerous and therefore strongly discouraged for independent travellers.

If you are already in Libya, stay away from large public gatherings, public demonstrations, sites of civil or militia conflict and major infrastructure sites. Try to gain independent and reliable information concerning the current political and civil situation and any engagements between military forces, militias or similar activities in your area. If uncomfortable with the situation in the area you are visiting then organise an immediate and secure exit from Libya by contacting your country's embassy or their representatives either in Libya, your home country or neighbouring nations

If requiring assistance EU citizens should contact the embassy of another EU state if they cannot make contact with their home country's representatives. The governments of many nations have issued formal travel warnings. Research these warnings in depth before travelling to or moving about within Libya. Many nations have also recommended their citizens in Libya should leave the country without delay. Libyan Airlines are operating limited flights to Cairo, Egypt from the Tripoli International Airport, and Turkish Airlines have resumed limited services from Mitiga International Airport to Istanbul and Ataturk, however limited capacity on the services may require the seeking out of other means of travel. The situation remains volatile, so care and elevated situational awareness must be exercised at all times if attempting to move about or transit through affected areas of Libya. If you must travel to Libya, see War zone safety safety for important precautionary information.
