Lost Your Lebanese Passport? Here’s What You Need To Do

Lost Your Lebanese Passport? Here's What You Need To Do
@chefcesarnasr | Lebanon24

Lebanon’s General Security has issued instructions for people who have lost their passports or other travel documents in Lebanon.

In a statement on Thursday, the General Directorate of General Security informed “Lebanese citizens, Palestinian refugees, and those in the under-review category, that lost or stolen Lebanese passports, travel documents, and laissez-passers, of which reports of loss have been issued, are considered canceled.”

According to the statement, people who have lost their travel document are required to:

  • Not use the document, which they had previously reported as lost or stolen, in case they end up finding it
  • Mandatorily hand the document over to the nearest regional General Security center, in case it is found, so that the loss report linked to it would be canceled accordingly
  • Mandatorily apply to obtain a new passport, travel document, or laissez-passer to replace the canceled one, at a regional General Security center

For more information, you can contact General Security using the 1717 hotline or visit the official General Security website, here.
