According to the statement published by the Libyan State Media and Communications Department, Prime Minister Dibeybe decided to form a commission, chaired by the Director of the Foreign Media Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, consisting of the directors of the Media and Government Communications Department and the members of the Media Support Fund.
In the statement, it was noted that “The Commission will coordinate processes such as activating the press card system prepared by the Media and Government Communications Department, facilitating security measures for journalists, and completing visa and residence procedures.”
Despite the arrival of March, 2023 press cards have not yet been given to foreign journalists and Libyan journalists working in foreign press organizations, and their accreditation procedures have not been completed.
Foreign journalists working under the Foreign Media Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Libya had difficulties in obtaining a residence permit in 2022. There are still few foreign journalists in Libya.
