NCDC updates obligatory COVID-19 protocols for travelers

Libya’s the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) issued on Wednesday several updates of obligatory COVID-19 precautionary protocols that are required for Libyans traveling abroad and foreigners coming to the country.

According to NCDC, all travelers from and into Libya must be vaccinated with two doses at least. Foreign travelers who received a two-dose vaccination will not be required to conduct a PCR test. Libyans traveling abroad also will not be be required to conduct a PCR test if it is not mandatory in the countries of destination.

Travellers who haven’t been vaccinated or received only one dose must submit a negative PCR test to be granted an entry to or an exit from Libya. Foreign travelers are required to conduct the PCR test within 72 hours before their arrival to the country, in addition to 10 days of self-quarantine, which can be reduced to 5 if the traveler test negative on the fifth day.

NCDC said that children under 12 are allowed entry to Libya without vaccination provided that they show no visible symptoms.
