Does anybody know where I can get this visa without any obligations of guides
or convois as inexpensive as possible?

Presence of the guide in Libya is compulsory and travelling alone quite impossible . Minimum is four peoples.
You can save money travelling inside or with a group but not the presence of the guide that is always present .

Surely heard or reported in wrong way . NO officials impediments are related to this nationality . No visa delivery reason’s are due or are to be researched in others specifics motivations and /or anything else.

@Budrinna

could you please explain why there are so many tourists travelling in Libya in a group of 2 persons only. Moreover I know at least three couples of 4WD tourists who managed easily to cross Libya in transit. All illegally????

Salam

Few cases of group less than 2 pax between thousands of minimum 4 pax and more (last average is of 6,9 4% and in increasing ) is normal and after all recommended peoples travels at all latitudes.
Moreover Not all peoples travelling Libya with foreign plated 4x4 are tourists ! (Specialists, archaeologists, officials, ecc that aren’t submitted to this disposal. )

All illegal? Much maruf (not know ) .
You can always ask them how they managed , but you will hardly get an answer. Good’s ways are endless as endless are the way to swindle the official (this also endless game) and since they found the way they keep for themselves or at least for goodfriends.

Inch’Allah femti kwies ( Hoping it is clear) marratani salam .

Hello Budrinna,

do you know any group travelling from Tunesia to Egypt I possibly could join.
It looks like you are quite familiar with the tourist-situation.
Please contact me by jochen.obser@gmx.de

Since when do you need a guide for a transit visa through Libya?
