Libya visa

Anyone has a contact to some media department or other institution in Libya to get a visa for professional journalists (Italian passport)?
International Media Department in Tripoli is not giving any feedback or answers the phone, after posting the media request form.

I’ll get back with more specific info with a couple of days, but what I can tell you right now is most people I’ve met here come in on visas that are valid for thirty days, and I know one of the requirements is a letter of invitation which a lot of tourism agencies here issue, but cost money (payable on arrival in the country). I’m not sure what type the visa is but I know it isn’t a “journalism visa”. As a matter of fact I’m not sure if the Ministry of Foreign Affairs even issues “journalist” visas right now.

I can help you to obtain visa
first there is no “journalist” visas so far there is a press pass ,
you can have :
1- tourist visa
2- mission visa
3- multi-exit visa visa for three months and six months .

if you ask they will tell you that you need invitation letter and etc

but all what you really need is someone who can get you the visa + copy of your passport
you can collect the visa at the airport when you arrive or at the Libyan embassy in your country

it will take between 3 to 7 days
