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
