Details

The death of a relative or a friend can be a traumatic experience. When the death occurs overseas family and friends in the UK can feel additional distress as they are unfamiliar with foreign procedures and are perhaps unable to communicate in the language of the country where the death occurred. Consular Directorate of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our Embassy in Beirut are ready to help as far as they can. You may be uncertain about what to do next or who to contact for advice. These notes are designed to help you through the practical arrangements you will need to make. You should be aware that in Lebanon procedures differ significantly to those in the United Kingdom and that, while we understand your need for arrangements to be made quickly, this is not always possible.
