foreign women in libya

Објавено во Либија форум

Hello everybody!
I'm from Romania, and i'm interesed in women statute in libya.My boyfriend is going to work in Libya for 1 year, maybe 2.I was thinking to relocate there with him, but i would like to know if I can be accepted there as an employee, what kind of job should I search?What is the local perception regarding foreign women? I only know that women are not allowed to wear indecent clothes.But they can walk alone on the street?Sorry if I seem to be a little bit ignorant, but I don't have this informations.
I mention that I have Law Studies, but i can imagine that there are not relevant in Libya. I can be a valid candidate to work in a hotel, as a receptionist? Do I need some qualification?
Please , if someone living in Libya is available, to answer my questions!
Thank you! Have a nice day!

    this looks like normal procedure - also in the present situation - you first need the invitation from the libyan side, when this is at the embassy in your country you go and fill the application, pay the fees and wait for about 2 weeks to get your passport stamped. NOW it depends very much on the 'power' of the lybian side, in other words: if they want you, you get in - if its just for a 'normal job' you are on hold, specially if you write in your application: manager, supervisor and such. better to use 'specialist for...' then they may understand they want you..

    you will be very allone socially left with your tv and your friend. to find work is possible but not as easy as you think, your salery - if you are lucky - somewhere between 500 and 1000 eur per month secretarial job. 90% of the hotel are under government control, salery is lower there. top hotel in tripoli operated by maltese 'corinthia' might be a chance, you find them in the web.
    for dressing its good if you have plenty of jeans, no need to wear a scarf. a libyan woman doesnt go out allone - its socially not accepted but everybody will likely recognize you as a foreigner, so you will be more or less safe in cities like tripoli or benghazi - other places, better take care.
