Moving to a new and often unknown country is always difficult and there are many considerations to be made: Housing and accommodation; the standard of medical care and children's education; shopping and availability of imported food and goods; the social scene and things to do in Libya, to name but a few. Libya re-entered the Global community in 2003 after almost 20 years of economic sanctions and the pressure is on to rebuild and modernise the Libyan infrastructure - roads, schools, universities, hospitals, water, power and oil & gas projects are all seeing major investment. As a result, expatriates who are experienced in these fields have been encouraged to come to Libya, either with their employer or in their own right in order to invest and grow the Libyan economy. Opportunities for expatriates from all over the globe exist; particularly in the construction and oil & gas sectors. Many parts of Tripoli resemble huge building sites, with western-standard hotels being built at an alarming rate! In the desert and offshore in the Mediterranean Sea, more and more western oil companies are investing millions of dollars to develop what are considered to be some of the largest oil and gas reserves in Africa. Expatriates come to live and work in Libya either on single status or accompanied by their families. Generally those who come to Libya on single status work at drilling sites, oil & gas installations and other projects, often deep in the Libyan desert where facilities are limited and therefore not suitable for families. Many families live in and around Tripoli, Benghazi and other cities scattered along the Mediterranean coastline, either on managed estates alongside other expat families, in villas (often with swimming pools), or in city centre apartments. Rents vary from the reasonable to the ridiculous! Libya is much more than just the desert - many of the best preserved Roman era structures outside of Italy are to be found at Sabratha, Leptis Magna and in Tripoli itself - the meaning of Tripoli is "Three Cities" and the visitor can spend many days or even weeks exploring the Roman architecture. For the first time visitor, Libya can be a very confusing and frustrating place. The standard of driving would not go amiss on a dodgems or stock car circuit, few of the streets outside of the town or city centres have names, street signs and shop names are all in Arabic script. However, Libyans are very keen to meet foreigners and will even stop you in the street or in a shop in order to practise their English. Don't let any of this put you off - Libyans are very friendly and family

oriented people and love children. If you are thinking about taking up a job opportunity in Libya, please take the time to do your homework and research using the many publications and Libya websites. Come to Libya and join the ever-growing expatriate community!
