A Message to our Consular Clients

Please be advised that Embassy Tripoli's visa services (both immigrant and nonimmigrant) have been temporarily suspended.  Please monitor our website for information on resumption of service.  We regret the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work to resume services in the near future.

Visa Services

Welcome to the Visa Section.  Because we are currently unable to provide visa services in Libya, the U.S. Department of State has officially designated U.S. Consulate Casablanca as the processing post for Libyan visa applicants resident in Libya.  Please visit their website for more information:  If you are a Libyan citizen but reside outside of Libya, you are welcome to apply for a U.S. visa at the Embassy or Consulate nearest your residence.

For short and temporary visits to the United States, use the links on the left to visit the Non-Immigrant Visa Section for more information.

If you want to become a permanent legal resident of the United States, please use the links on the left to visit the Immigrant Visa Section for further information on our services.
