Security concerns when shipping parcels to Libya
There are quite a few security concerns when shipping parcels to the State of Libya. This is mainly because of the high amount of arms trafficking that occurs both within Libya and in the region as a whole. With that in mind, you should safely assume that your parcels will be searched to make sure their contents are within the legal shipping codes there. Unfortunately, along with this type of illegal activity also comes thievery, both for larger shipments and smaller parcels. Some believe that parcels that seem to carry gifts are targeted while others theorize that larger goods are more focused upon by these criminals. No matter which theory is correct, you will still want to take out some insurance on your items in case you fall victim to this kind of behavior.
