Can a Foreigner Buy Property in Libya?

If you are wondering if you are allowed to purchase a property in Libya, the answer is most likely NO! From our research, there is only one nationality that is allowed to buy properties in Libya – the Maltese.

Maltese May Own Property

According to law, any Maltese national may purchase land in Libya. We believe that this is only available because of reciprocal laws that Libya has with Malta.

The Law May Change – But Right Now is NO

For any other nationalities, you are currently unable to buy properties in Libya. Be careful when someone offers to sell you their property with someone else’s name on it. In a court of law, this type of contract will most likely turn against you.

There is hope that in the future, foreigners may own land in Libya, however, there are no new laws on the horizon.
