Subject: Re: Individual tour guide for Lybia and Iran
Joke & Jos,

You may not find a guide for Libya outside a group. Currently Canadians can only get a Libyan Visa if 'invited' by a resident Libyan. As a tourist you'll have to deal with an 'authorized inviter' - typically these are the authorized travel agents and the Visa is issued as you arrive.

NOTE: The Libyan Embassy in Ottawa does NOT issue Visas to Canadians - but it does to US visitors (go figure) as there's no Libyan Embassy in US. The above info was given to me about 2 months ago when I made preliminary enquiries. But with Libya, anything can change at will.

But enjoy Iran - it's wonderful (except for the food - and no wine of course).
