Egypt: Country, Libya Agree On Upgrading Procedures to Dispatch Local Workers

Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs Ahmed Ragheb said on Wednesday 6/6/2012 Cairo and Tripoli have agreed on new procedures to dispatch Egyptian workers to Libya.

An electronic communication means will be established between manpower ministers in Cairo in Tripoli in the coming months, said Ragheb.

He told diplomatic reporters that the meeting of the Egyptian-Libyan consular committee earlier on Wednesday 6/6/2012 focused on problems facing Egyptians in Libya, particularly the visas, work permits and workers' dues.

It was agreed that Tripoli sends lists of Egyptian workers needed in Libya to the Egyptian Manpower Ministry in an attempt to prevent third-party deals that could be used in issuing visas, Ragheb noted.
