Canada - Trave Advise Lybia
Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada advises against all travel to Libya due to persistent insecurity throughout the country, including sustained armed conflict, a high risk of terrorist attacks, an unpredictable political situation and a high crime rate. If you are presently in Libya, you should leave now by the safest means possible.
Department of State warns U.S
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to Libya and recommends that U.S. citizens currently in Libya depart immediately. On July 26, 2014, the U.S. Embassy suspended all embassy operations in Libya and relocated staff outside of the country because of ongoing violence between Libyan militias in the immediate vicinity of the Embassy. The security situation in Libya remains unpredictable and unstable. If in Libya, make contingency emergency plans and maintain security awareness at all times. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning issued on January 20, 2015.
Due the destruction of all function government structures of the Libyan Jamahiriya, by November 2011, the situation in Libya can only be described as anarchistic and chaotic.
Many Thanks to USA, GB, Canada, France, Italy and Australia!
