6Just a note that there has been no update on tourist visas to Libya yet. Ramadan is due to end this weekend, so hopefully as offices get back to regular work schedules after that, there will be an update and we hope the visas will resume. Also, just so you are aware, if you are looking to travel soon...there is a 3 day holiday here in Libya with the end of Ramadan, so if you're looking for business visas or any other paperwork to come through in the next several days, it will likely not be until later next week that offices are back in business again.

8Ok for the business visa (even if it is very expensive).
But what about entering from Tunisia at Ras Adjir (with my car): How I can be sure that the border post is open for tourists?

9My recommendation on this would just be to keep watching the news. There's no easy way to know. I haven't heard that it's been closed again recently...and I know of some others who came across no problem a few weeks ago. It might be helpful to even go to the border post the day before you plan to cross just to be sure all is set for the following day and even get the papers to fill out for your car...just an idea that I heard some others did.

10And if it's not open, what can I do?
Wait in Tunisia? It can seem a little boring if it lasts a few days and may be after that the border is always closed....
