Egypt Eases Travel Restrictions on Libyans


On Wednesday, the ChargĂ© d’Affaires of the Libyan Embassy in Egypt, Tariq Al-Hawaij said that the Egyptian authorities will start easing travel restrictions imposed on travellers to and from Libya.

The Libyan Embassy in Cairo said in a statement that Cairo will cancel the requirement to obtain prior security approval for children of Libyan women married to Egyptian nationals, and their spouses.

This step will also include lifting the restrictions on Egyptians obtaining residency permits in Libya, as well as those who apply to the family unification program, the statement noted.

Al-Hawaij stressed that the Egyptian side is studying the options available in order to facilitate Libyan citizens obtaining entry visas to Egypt.
