My family and I are moving to Libya soon. I am trying to find out more about the kind of accommodation available in Tripoli. What options are available to expats? Which options are safest?

Hi, Taylor. Like most cities, Tripoli has a wide variety of accommodation available. Expats can choose from apartments and villas to traditional Libyan houses to even housing in gated communities.

Though gated communities, or compounds, may be the most expensive option, it is also the safest and the one most expats will opt for. Most expats will also negotiate for paid accommodation or at least a stipend as part of their contract. 

Have a look at our page on Accommodation in Libya for more details. Hope this helps!
