Lebanon lifts COVID-19-related international travel restrictions as of Oct. 18; limited domestic measures in effect.






As of Oct. 18, authorities in Lebanon have lifted the nation’s COVID-19-related international travel restrictions. All arriving travelers are now exempt from taking a COVID-19 test prior to departure for the country, regardless of vaccination status. Limited COVID-19-related domestic measures remain in effect.

Domestic Measures
Wearing a facemask is still required in vehicles unless traveling alone. Some businesses may still require individuals to wear a facemask; similarly, some tourist attractions and entertainment establishments may still require persons to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test result to enter. Those violating the country’s COVID-19-related domestic measures may be subject to penalties.

Authorities could reimpose, extend, further ease, or otherwise amend any restrictions with little-to-no notice depending on disease activity over the coming weeks.


Follow all official instructions. Abide by national health and safety measures. Reconfirm all travel arrangements before departure for Lebanon. Consider delaying traveling if experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, as they may prompt increased scrutiny and delays. Liaise with trusted contacts for further updates and guidance. Maintain contact with your diplomatic representation. Ensure contingency plans account for further disruptive measures or extensions of current restrictions. Reconsider and reconfirm nonemergency health appointments.
