Due to civil war hostilities, several foreign embassies in Libya remain closed or have extremely limited consular services available; others have been damaged or shuttered and have yet to reopen; and the issue of diplomatic recognition during the transitional government remains unclear.

Rebel troops stormed and robbed the Venezuelan embassy in Tripoli, and other embassies, notably the UK mission, were also destroyed. Many areas of Libya are now under the de facto government of the National Transitional Council (NTC), while others have no administration or are making do with impromptu arrangements. Some countries have accorded the NTC the same degree of recognition as a nation state’s government; others have recognized the state of Libya and accepted the NTC’s representative of that state; and still others have consented to participate in conversation with the NTC. Some countries have refused to recognize the NTC at all, preferring to maintain diplomatic ties with the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya or suspending diplomatic relations while waiting for the establishment of a Libyan interim government. Countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom never recognize governments and only recognize nations, thus to make their position less confusing, they have accepted diplomatic envoys from the NTC to replace prior diplomatic personnel. The encumbrant representative of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya government is still recognized by the host nation in some Libyan foreign missions and at the UN, but now represents the Libyan nation in transition, providing either formal or quasi-formal recognition of the NTC as a provisional administration. If you need to go to Libya, make sure you know the status of the Libyan foreign mission you’re working with and make sure any necessary paperwork is acceptable for travel to Libya, entrance into the nation, and any future travel to the area of Libya you want to visit.

If you need help from your country’s consular officials, you may be able to find them in a country bordering Libya or in a linked country if you are a citizen of an EU country.

Embassies, other foreign embassies, and temporary offices are situated in Tripoli; Benghazi has some additional presence.
