Libyan transit visa in Cairo or Amman?
 
Friends of mine talked their way into getting a 10 day Libyan transit visa about 6 weeks ago. They had to work very hard. Others have since been turned away without trying as hard from what I have read here and on blogs.

Any recent news?

I am reading that tourist visas might become available again also:

Any recent news? The ferries from Israel are very expensive with a landy!

Tourist visas are now available for Libya, in exactly the same way as before (on collection at border or airport).

It remains a tourist-unfriendly environment, so travel wisely.

According to this temehu page

... the reopened visa will be granted only for tourists who intend to travel along the coast for the purpose of tourism....

so it's escorted coastal transits only, which makes sense I suppose.

I'm told by Yak they are asking €300pp for a visa, but drop it significantly for a group. Don't know if this includes the escort fee too, and all the rest.
