With that said, the Embassy advises interested citizens to confirm, in accordance with the Middle East Airlines’ recommendations regarding European travel regulations, travel arrangements to their U.S. destinations before booking with MEA.
Moreover, they must comply with all regulations of the country of transit or final destination.
The Embassy further notes that for flights to Paris, passengers will be required to present a completed International Travel Certificate before boarding the flight.
For U.S. citizens and LRPs, this form can be obtained in English from the website of the U.S. Embassy in Paris.
Furthermore, once ticketed, U.S. citizens and LRPs are asked to provide ticket/travel information to the American Citizen Services (ACS) office through this link.
“This will facilitate ACS to provide additional flight-related information if required, and alert U.S. embassies of transiting American passengers,” the Embassy explained.
Notably, the Embassy stated that American nationals currently present in Syria “should not purchase tickets on any flights from Beirut until the border with Lebanon is re-opened.”
The U.S. Embassy’s announcement comes in light of the 4th stage of Lebanese evacuation flights since the pandemic hit the country in February.
