Post New Tax Road in Libya

Starting last month a new Road tax has been introduced for foreign travellers travelling with private cars & Bikes. Fixed at the equivalent of €150 / car must be payed at the border. Local agencies can arange in advance the payment . Tax is introduced in order not to damage the local fixed fuel %oil state fixes price .

Budrinna,

Is this tax based on a period of time in Libya, or for example if transiting to Egypt would it have to be paid twice, ie on the way from Tunisia & then when returning from Egypt??

Your fixer should have arranged visa etc etc, if you dont have it you may be in for a bit of a wait!!

HI Trumpton

Reading the text of the "Ikrar" it seems clear that tax must be payed both in and out from Ras Ejdir and Sollum border, cannot say nothing about the duration or else . Note that the price is expressed in LD , that actually floats around € 83/84 , in the newpaper it is reported in € but also here cannot say more. Will chek and let You know .
