Libya is a country in Northern Africa. As of September 2011, it's very bad news but getting better.

You need an invitation for a visa. Unfortunately, single foreigners traveling the country might be looked at very suspiciously both by Libyan officials and citizens, therefore Western hitchhikers in this country might get a local person who has invited them there into troubles. There are checkpoints when entering and leaving most of the cities. Furthermore it seems that travelling in Libya is only allowed if you travel with professional, organisated, and from the libyan government certified traveling organisations.
