Libyan desert Visa?

Obtaining a Visa for Libya is near impossible these days. I will be wandering the eastern desert and wish to wander the Libyan desert as well (and thats all.. no cities in Libya), do you think it is safe to do so without a Libyan Visa? The area is so far remote that I highly doubt it would be a problem but I would rather be safe. Even if I could apply for a Visa I would, of course, not have any valid proof of flights into Libya, hotels.. nothing of that sort since this is a different situation.

Does anyone have experience with this? I have to think that the majority of travels to Siwa also go to the Libyan/Great Sea desert... right?

Any help is much appreciated!

There is much info on [original link]
This is a site for motorbike travellers but the Lybian Visa is discussed often.

Just don't step on any landmines in the desert (no I'm not joking!).

Apparently there are minefields that go back to WWII, the 1977 war with Egypt, the Libyan / Chad conflict etc.

Travelling in the Lybian desert without proper papers. Don't think so, - unless you want to end up on the six o'clock news on CNN. Seriously, - here is the visa requirement page for Libya. Do check with the proper consul in the UK concerning your present status, and your return.
