    Tunisians, Turks Can Enter Libya Without Visa

    The head of the Libyan National Transitional Council, Mostafa Abdul Jalil has recently announced that  Tunisian and Turkish passport holders will be allowed to enter Libya without applying for a visa.

    However, other nationalities such as Algerians, Moroccans, Syrians, and many other African Nationalities; are not allowed to enter the country without a visa.

    Mr. Mustafa Abdul Jalil has sent official correspondence to TUNISAIR recommending that the airline should not accept in its flights passengers holding passports of the other nationalities who do not have a Libyan visa.

    From the beginning of Libyan Revolution on February 17th, the Tunisian and Turkish governments supported the popular uprisings.  Both nations have bilateral cooperation, open trade, strategic relations and a historical link with Libya.  The government of Algeria was late in recognizing the National Transitional Council of Libya and has given sanctuary to former dictator Moammar Gadaffi’s wife Safia, daughter Aisha and sons Hannibal and Mohammed.  Libya was the first Arab country to cut diplomatic relations with Bashar Al-Assad’s regime and has recognized the National Transitional Council of the Syrian opposition as the sole government of Syria.  Libya is currently facing a diplomatic fallout with the many African nations that Moammar Gadaffi established strong ties to because they sent mercenaries to support the Gadaffi regime against the Libyan people.
