Amb. Mohammed Mohammed, Chargé d’Affaires En Titre of Nigeria to Tripoli, Libya


It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the website of the Embassy of Nigeria in Tripoli, Libya. As I assume office as Head of Mission, my goal is to work hard to improve bilateral relations between Nigeria and Libya as well as Malta, which is concurrently accredited to the Mission. Post-Independence bilateral relations between Nigeria and Libya started with the exchange of Ambassadors between the two countries in 1970.

Alhaji O. Ahmadu Suka was the first Nigeria Ambassador to Libya. He was in Tripoli between 1970 and 1974. If anything, I intend to maintain the already established cordial relations between the two countries. For those visiting Nigeria, especially for the first time, either on business or for leisure, I am sure you will find the information contained on this website valuable for the purpose of your journey.

2. Meanwhile the website will provide basic information on Nigeria - its government, economy, politics, cultural heritage, as well as investment opportunities in the country. I will like to add that the website brings to focus the Renewed Hope Agenda as well as 4Ds foreign policy thrust of Democracy, Demography, Development and Diaspora, of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR and its vision for a better Nigeria. The reason for the agenda is transforming the country through fostering appropriate economic and social policies that will engender progress and prosperity for all Nigerians. The Mission is to complement efforts of the government by seeking to attract foreign investments in the relevant sectors of our economy.

3. Because I place high premium on welfare of Nigerian migrants, the website is also designed to improve the efficiency of the Mission's real-time delivery in rendering necessary consular services to those of them living in Libya and Malta. We do not have accurate figure for the number of Nigerians in Libya because most of them had entered the country illegally with the hope of crossing to Libya, Mediterranean Sea into Europe.

This is because our host country is both a transit hub and destination for irregular migration. Majority of these migrants arrive in Libya without proper documentation and could be confronted with many challenges on arrival. The website is, therefore, to provide an opportunity for Nigerians with consular issues to instantly get in touch with the Embassy.

I hope our citizens in both Libya and Malta will utilize this platform to reach out to the Mission online whenever necessary. I assure everyone that the Mission would immediately respond to every single inquiry received.

4. Furthermore, I want to use this platform to advise and caution Nigerians that current Libyan laws make it illegal for employers to engage foreigners, who have no work permit and health certificate clearing them of any incapacitated ailments. Indeed, except in a few areas where there are no Libyans with the technical skills to do a job, it is extremely difficult for foreigners to be employed.

Therefore, all Nigerians who wish to come and work in Libya must obtain valid work permits even before leaving Nigeria. You are advised to familiarize yourself with the provisions of subsisting Libyan laws in respect of entry, exit, work and residence in the country.

5. However, if any Nigerian can meet their immigration requirements, you are free to migrate. Migration that follows due process of law is allowed, otherwise it is my hope that Nigerians should ponder well before taking the risk of the ill-advised journey across the desert. For those already in Libya, you are advised to register with the Embassy, because we are here to assist you as much as we can. Let me stress that Nigerians are advised to refrain from this suicidal journey – ‘’Destination Disaster’’.

6. In case you need additional information, please feel free to contact any staff of the Embassy.

7. Please accept my warmest regards.

Ambassador Mohammed Mohammed
