Money changing in Libya
The exchange restrictions on Libyan dinars appears to be finished. Last visit to Libya (November 06) I was able to exchange UK Pounds and US Dollars into Libyan dinars at the border. No paperwork, no questions, no passport copies, no hassle.
The rate was the same as ‘Honest Ahmed’ was offering in Ben Guerdane.
The bank is a temporary looking building just inside the border where drivers wait for their Libyan number plates.
Best of all, I was able to change all surplus currency back into Euros on leaving. No currency declarations requested.
Exchange rate for Euros into Dinar was 1.65
Exchange rate for Dinars back into Euros was 1.7
There is now a ATM cash dispensing machine at the border, and another one in the car park at Sabratha.
