On March 4, 2019, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) announced that the U.S. Embassy in Tunis is now the primary site for processing immigrant visas for Libyan nationals living in Libya [PDF version]. The designated site for Libyan nationals living in Libya was previously the U.S. Embassy in Casablanca, Morocco. However, the DOS changed the primary site due to visa restrictions placed on Libyan nationals by the government of Morocco.

Beginning in April 2019, “the National Visa Center will [begin] scheduling Libyan nationals residing in Libya [for] immigrant visas interviews at [the] U.S. Embassy in Tunis.” Those who are affected by the change will receive a notification from the National Visa Center with a new case number. The National Visa Center will send appointment notices for all future interviews at the U.S. Embassy in Tunis to applicants going forward.
