The UK has changed its travel advice for Lebanon. We are now advising against all but essential travel to Lebanon. For British nationals intending to travel to Lebanon, this means that you need to assess whether your trip really is essential. For British nationals already in Lebanon, you should consider whether it’s essential that you remain for the coming period.

We keep our advice constantly under review. We advise you to subscribe to travel advice updates, and follow us on Twitter @ukinlebanon and @HMAtomfletcher, and ‘like’ our Facebook page for the latest updates.

Brits who require consular assistance can call +961 1 960 800 or email: consular.beirut@fco.gov.uk.

We remain determined to continue our contribution to Lebanon’s stability.
