We are


The European Union (EU) is an economic and political partnership between 28 European countries. It plays an important role in international affairs through diplomacy, trade, development aid and working with global organisations. Abroad, the EU is represented through more than 140 diplomatic representations, known also as EU Delegations, which have a similar function to those of an embassy.

The EU Delegation to Libya represents the European Union (EU). It works closely with all EU member states represented in Libya.

The Delegation represents the EU as a whole, as part of the EU's unified diplomatic corps – the European External Action Service.

The Delegation functions much like an embassy and represents the EU in its dealings on political issues, trade, development, cooperation, etc.

By engaging with political actors, the media, academics, business circles, civil society and citizens, the Delegation raises awareness of EU issues and concerns, and promote a stronger partnership between the EU and Libya.

Consular protection for EU citizens is mainly provided by individual EU country embassies and their consulates.

The 4 main tasks:

  • represent EU interests
  • promote cooperation with Libya
  • support Libya's stability and its democratic transition
  • ensure EU cooperation benefits those most in need.
