Shipping and Removals in Libya
Numerous companies ship to Libya, specifically to Tripoli and Benghazi, which are major ports. Sometimes an expat's employer will have an in-house or preferred user who aims to make the move as smooth as possible. Relocation companies can be hired to assist with every aspect of the move, from furniture transportation to school enrolment.
It should be noted that Libya has strict rules on what may and may not be brought into the country. Apart from the obvious - weapons, ammunition, narcotics and pornography – there are bans on various medicines, including codeine, and alcohol. It is advisable to check with the removals company before departure as being caught with ‘banned’ items can result in adverse consequences.
It is likely that all music, books, CDs and DVDs will be subject to inspection or censorship at customs. Anything considered to contravene either Islamic morality or the Libyan government will be banned.
