U.S. Citizen Services

The Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens against travel to Libya and strongly recommends that U.S. citizens remaining in Libya depart immediately.

On July 26, 2014 the U.S. Embassy suspended all embassy operations in Libya and relocated staff, due to the violence between Libyan militias.  The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli remains closed, and the security situation in Libya remains unpredictable and unstable.  Please review the Travel Warning for Libya at www.travel.state.gov.

U.S. citizens in Libya who seek emergency assistance or routine consular services should contact the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.
