In order for us to provide you with a Libyan visa on arrival
without the need to visit any embassies or complete any application forms. All
we require is to send us a scanned copy of your passport's bio page (the page
containing your personal data) and your details via email. We will then use these
documents to apply for the Libyan Visa Approval: an official document allowing
us to issue you with the actual stamp on arrival at Tripoli Airport or at any
of the land borders with Tunisia and Egypt. If you will be coming by plane, then
we will send you a scanned copy of the approval to the email address provided
during the enquiry, because some airliners will not let you board the plane
without a proof of the Libyan visa.
