Libyan Embassy in Cairo to Issue Biometric Passports


The Libyan Embassy in Cairo announced the opening of a registration system to obtain a biometric passport.

In a statement, the Embassy added that a link has been assigned for residents in Egypt to register online, and book a photo session for the passport.

On 1 May, Egypt appointed Ambassador Mohamed Tharwat as Chargé d’Affairs to its Embassy in Tripoli, as Cairo seeks to restore diplomatic relations with Libya after a six-year hiatus.

A diplomatic delegation from the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs visited Tripoli to inform the Libyan government of the appointment of the Chargé d’Affairs, and to discuss the reopening of the Embassy.

Egypt’s Prime Minister, Mostafa Madbouly and a high-level ministerial delegation visited Tripoli on 20 April. The delegation included Ministers of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Manpower, Trade and Industry, and a number of investors.

“We are keen to stand with Libya and settle the crisis in it. My visit to Tripoli confirms Cairo’s support for Libya and the Government of National Unity (GNU)” the Egyptian PM said.
