Japan has reopened its embassy in Libya

According to the Foreign Ministry, Japan formally reopened its embassy in Libya on Monday, citing a slight improvement in the security situation.

The embassy, which has been closed since 2014, will employ as few people as possible and focus its efforts on working with the Libyan government. Temporary consular services will be offered at a location in Tunisia, Libya’s neighbor.

Japan will keep its travel advisory for Libya at Level 4, the highest warning level in its four-tier system, even after it reopens. Because of safety concerns, we strongly advise Japanese nationals in Libya to leave the country.
