Introduction to collecting debt in Libya
Do you have trouble collecting money from your Libyan customers? Do not worry; we can help you get paid by your Libyan customers easily.
In Libya, the person who owes money is called the debtor, and the person who gave them the money is called the creditor. If the creditor collects the debt themselves, this is called first-party collection. If they give someone else to do it, this is called third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Libya
The debt collection process in Libya is typically conducted in multiple steps.
The image below explains the standard process for collecting debt in Libya:
1 Upload your claim:
If you want someone to help you get your money back, you will need to find a debt collection partner and upload your claim to their website. If you use Debitura, we will provide you with 3 quotes from local partners in the African country relevant to your case. This is 100% free - no strings attached.
2 Amicable collection:
The collection process begins with sending reminders to the person who owes you money. The reminders are sent through email, SMS, letter, and other ways. The goal is to get the debtor to pay or agree that they owe the debt and start a payment plan. We offer a no-cure-no-pay solution for amicable collection, which means you only have to pay a small success fee if we recover your debt. Amicable collections with Debitura are 100% risk-free!
If the person you are owed money from has not paid you back after you have talked to them, it is time to look at what to do next. We will look at how much money you are owed, the chance of getting paid back, and other factors to help you decide what to do. There are three typical next steps:
If your claim is for less than 2,000-5,000 euros, it is often not worth it to take more legal action. In this case, we recommend "debt surveillance." This means we will keep trying to talk to the person you owe money to and try to agree on a settlement that is fair for both sides.
B: Legal collections:
It's a good idea to go through a legal process if you have a big claim. The steps you'll need to take will vary depending on what kind of claim it is and how big it is. Usually, it will take around a year and a half to finish the whole process.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you are owed money from has agreed that you are owed money, or if there is a court order, you can go to the bailiff's court.
At Debitura, we can help you with all three steps in Libya. We will be there to assist you every step of the way.

The analysis is concluding that the risk of doing business in Libya is high. Based on this high score, we recommend always charging upfront payment or using credit insurance when trading with customers in Libya, as it may be very difficult to get paid. The high risk score is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Libya
Economic risk in Libya is very high (6 out of 6). An economic risk of 6 out of 6 is relatively high in Africa.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Libya is 41,88 bn. USD (2021), growing by 31,37% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Libya ranks #87 out of 183 countries and has a medium-sized economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #1 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a fast-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 6018 USD, ranking Libya number #87 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Libya is pretty average compared to all the countries in the world.
You can see a more throughout picture of GDP and economic growth in Libya in the table below:
Another significant influencer for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You can see a more throughout overview of monetary data points in Libya in the table below:
The business environment risk in Libya
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Libya is very high (6 out of 6), which is a high risk score in Africa.
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. Take a look at the important facts for Libya in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 17 in Libya, which is considered low in Africa.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 38 in Libya, a low score for a country in Africa.
The political risk in Libya
The political risk in Libya is very high, with a score of 6/6. This is a relatively high political risk score in Africa.
The governance and political stability indicators are important drivers for political risk. An overview of Libya can be seen in the table below:
The rule of law index analyses to which extent agents have confidence in and abide by the rules of society, in particular the quality of contract enforcement, property rights, the quality of the courts, and the police's ability to enforce court orders.
When transacting business in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Libya, the rule of law index is at -1,78 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Libya has, therefore, a very low rule of law index, which means it is often close to impossible to enforce your contracts. We, therefore, recommend avoiding credits and recommend charging upfront payment instead.
Other drivers for the very high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the very weak political stability index, and the very large shadow economy that is 38,27% of Libya's GDP.
The commercial risk in Libya
In Libya, the commercial risk score is 4/4, which in our model is a high score. This high commercial risk score is high compared to the average in Africa.
The financing risk in Libya
We have calculated the financing risk to be 4/4, which equals a high risk. A high financing risk score is relatively high for countries in Africa.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the extra information for Libya in the table below:
In Libya, the credit information sharing index is 0 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). This means the accessibility and quality of credit information available in Libya is very low.
This makes it very difficult for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Libya. Unless you have a strong relationship with your customers in Libya, we highly recommend charging payment upfront or using credit insurance.
Your rights as a creditor are 0 out of 12 and, therefore, very weak.
