The National Transitional Council confirms that the measures taken by the Egyptian authorities in imposing an entry visa to Libyan nationals wishing to enter the Arab Republic of Egypt, and the regulation of entry into Libya by Egyptian and other Arab nationals, are temporary measures.
They have been taken in the interest of the February 17th revolution and will ensure greater protection for the people of Libya under the conditions that the country finds itself in.
These measures will be undertaken without any complications and as fast as possible in collaboration with the Egyptian consulate in Benghazi. To make this process as easy as possible for Libyan nationals a travel office will be opened in the city of Tobruk to enable citizens living in the Eastern regional to obtain visas.
The NTC appeals to all citizens for their understanding of these measures and for their cooperation with the concerned authorities to ensure the safe implementation for the sake of public interest.
