Morocco has granted entry visas to 73 Libyan citizens, including 34 students, after a hiatus of nearly two and a half years, and awaiting the announcement of the other lists, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

The ministry said that the Undersecretary for Consular Affairs, Murad Hamima, asked the Passports, Nationality and Foreigners Affairs Department to start issuing entry visas for Moroccan citizens to enter Libya, with priority given to those that have official contracts with the Libyan state.

This comes within the framework of the continuity of efforts made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to work on facilitating and granting Libyan citizens entry visas as soon as possible to a number of countries, according to the ministry.
