Communications in Libya

Communications in Libya Last updated on Thursday 22nd April 2010

The Libyan government owns and operates the postal and telecommunications system, with post office box and PTT facilities in all the large towns.

The air embargo means that the international mail service is slow, but internal mail is relatively cheap, fast and efficient.

Internal telephone calls are connected quickly, but expect a longer wait for international connections, as the number of lines is restricted. The international code for Libya is 218, and main internal area codes are as follows:

Tripoli: 21

Benghazi: 61

Tobruk: 87

Tripoli International Airport: 22 Fax facilities are available at the larger hotels, and from 24-hour PTT offices.
