Work in Libya - head's up reqd.

Discussion in 'Syria, Mali, Libya, Middle East & North Africa' started by medwaymud, Dec 15, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Good possibility of work coming up early 2012 somewhere in Libya ...exact location unknown at present.
    Are any Arrser's working there at the moment ? If so....any recommendations on mobile phone networks to deal with ?
    Is that the best solution for communications or is landline up and running now?

    While I am at it - any other useful bits of info re: making life in general better appreciated.

    Merry Christmas all.
  2. Landlines are still down, but there are two mobile networks, al-Madar and Libyana, credit on both regularly topped up for free by the NTC. You can send and recieve calls outside Libya on al-Madar, not sure about Libyana. Roaming works with your UK provider, but it's expensive.

    Advice: fly in, rather than going via Tunisia. The border's a nightmare. Getting a visa's a major drama too, these days. And bring booze...
  3. Who are you working for....if opsec/persec isn`t an issue. I had been working for AMEC out there when it all kicked off in February and am looking to back next month.
