Embassy of Canada to Libya
The revolution against tyranny in 2011 led to Libya’s first democratic government and a new era of Canada-Libya relations with both countries committed to working together to promote freedom, rule of law, and human rights.
“Due to the deteriorating security environment in Libya, the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development has decided to temporarily suspend its operations at its office in Tripoli. We have not suspended diplomatic relations with Libya.
The Canadian Embassy in Libya is currently closed, but will continue to operate remotely from the Canadian Embassy in Tunisia until conditions allow for its reopening.
This is a temporary measure and has no relation to our continuing and long-standing diplomatic relations with Libya.
Canada remains committed to support the Libyan people in their efforts to build a stable and secure democracy.”
Effective March 31, 2015, all visa and immigration content on this website will move to the Immigration section of the new Canada.ca website. This includes country-specific information, checklists, forms and guides.
Please note: These changes do not affect the way visa and immigration sections at Canadian embassies process applications.
