However, the guy at Visa and Translation Services still thinks you need a guide. He also said that some tour companies (Arkno?) will not supply an invitation without guiding you. Dammit.
He suggested that there may be more accurate information available directly from the Libyan tourist board, in Libya. Hmmm. The plot thickens.
Also just called the guy at Arkno in Libya. He said that it's very difficult to help mototrcyclists, and that they aren't really doing that any more. In a 4x4 it would be easy, but not on a bike. He also thought the guide was still a requirement, and was also talking about applying in groups of 4, although the Consulate said I can apply on my own.
Frustrating? You betcha.
