Note for Kenyan nationals travelling to Libya
Libya demands an Arabic translation of all foreign passports, and will deny access to foreigners without the translated passports. To that effect, the Kenyan Embassy in Libya procured a translation stamp specifically for Kenyan passports, and has facilitated the translation of passports for the Kenyan community in Libya. The embassy is, furthermore, willing to render the same service for emergency travel by Kenyans residing in Belgium/Luxembourg, on condition that the passport is forwarded in good time to the Kenyan Embassy in Libya through the Kenyan Embassy in Brussels. The passport will be returned to Brussels through the diplomatic bag.
