    According to information received from local contacts vessels of more than twenty years of age from their date of launching are required to obtain authorisation by the Marine Authority prior to entering a Libyan port. Authorisation is normally obtained through the ship's agent at least two weeks prior to vessel's ETA.  Such vessels calling a Libyan port without prior notice / authorisation will be permitted to enter subject to the payment of a fine of 1600 euros for the first call; the fine will be doubled for each successive call.

    To apply for an entry permit the following valid ship's certificates should be attached to the application to the Marine Authority (through the local ship's port agents)
    1. Load line certificate
    2. Safety equipment certificate
    3. Cargo ship safety radio certificate
