Document for use in Libya needs first to be legalised by way of FCO Apostille and then submitted to the Consulate of Libya for further attestation.
For some commercial documents further legalisation by the London and the Arab-British Chambers of Commerce may be required prior to submitting to the Libyan Consulate for further attestation.
The consular fee is £50 per document for legalisation and additional £100 if translation into Arabic is also required .
If legalisation by the London and Arab-British Chambers of Commerce is required, additional fee of £52.20 per document applies.
Turnaround time is likely to be 1-2 working days if consular legalisation only.
If further attestation by the London and Arab Chambers of Commerce is required, turnaround time is likely to be 6-8 working days.
For Certificates of Origin and Invoices the Libyan Consulate may charge a percentage of the sale price as a legalisation fee which may potentially make legalisation costly in given cases.
A translation of each document into Arabic will be required (for their internal use only and not required to be notarised/legalised in itself).
If translation is not submitted with the original English document, the consulate chares £100 on top of the standard consular fee to provide translation into Arabic for their internal use only.
Method of payment: cash only
Opening hours: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday to Thursday
