Dear Lebanese Citizens in the USA,
Attention travelers going to Lebanon from the US:
Due to the fact that many PCR test results in the US are taking longer than 96 hours to be issued, and after direct discussions between the Embassy and the relevant Lebanese authorities:
1- The 96-hour timeline will now be calculated from the date of the test results instead of the date of the test swab (that is, 96 hours from the time you receive your test result to boarding time).
2- All relevant parties, including airlines, have been informed of this revision for travelers departing from the US.
We apologize for the evolving updates due to the fluid COVID-19 situation in Lebanon, as in all countries; however, the necessity of these guidelines ultimately serves to protect the Lebanese population as well as travelers.
In order to serve you better, kindly address your consular inquiries to the following offices:
Lebanese passports and travel documents (New and renewal):
Palestinian travel documents and visas:
Registration of vital records, waivers and official translations:
Power of Attorney, requests of Lebanese documents and judicial records:
Document authentications, transfer of bodies:
