There Are New Requirements For Travelers To Lebanon – Here Are The Details

Beirut Airport

As covid-19 cases rise in Lebanon, new measurements are now imposed on visitors and expats coming to Lebanon.

The Director-General of Civil Aviation of the Ministry of Public Works and Transport has just issued a circular, No.32/2, dated August 12th, to all airlines and ground handling companies operating at Beirut Rafic Hariri Airport.

The measurements required the following:

All passengers except children under the age of 12 should perform a PCR Test that includes a QR code in a lab certified by local authorities and having a time difference of 96 hours between the test result and the date of arrival.

The PCR tests with a QR code that come out positive will not be allowed to board the plane departing to Lebanon.

Here are the countries that Lebanon accepts having their PCR without a QR code:

  • USA
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • South Korea
  • Japan
  • All European countries

Exemptions from hotel quarantine are as follows :

Passengers returning to Lebanon within a week of their departure are also exempted from doing a PCR test in the countries of departure. However, they should perform a PCR in Rafic Hariri International Airport during the arrival process.

All airlines shall comply with this circular and impose the measurements on passengers.
